Morris signs with UH
Kansas City Community College point guard Brandon Morris will join the Cougars as the fourth member of its 2012 recruiting class.
“I had a great feel for the coaches and I wanted to be closer to home,” said Morris, who is from Alexandria, La. and attended Bolton High School.
As a sophomore, Morris, 6-0, averaged 16.9 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.9 assists and three steals per game in 31 games for the Blue Devils. In his two seasons at KCKCC, Morris led the Blue Devils to a 45-18 record. His play earned him a spot on All-Jayhawk Conference Second Team.
“We are thrilled to have Brandon join our Cougar family. He is an explosive lead guard with great court vision,” head coach James Dickey said. “He can defend as well as score. Brandon will add experience to our backcourt.”
Morris chose UH over Seton Hall, Mississippi State and Missouri State.
The Cougars have one scholarship remaining that they will most likely use on another post player.
