It’s certainly looking that way. Morgan indicated the Hoosiers were leading in a piece penned earlier in the week by John Decker of Hoosier Nation and a short blurb in this morning’s Las Vegas Review Journal has the Hoosiers on top:
Though he doesn’t expect to make an oral commitment until summer, Moses Morgan said Indiana tops the list of schools he is considering.
“The tradition they have there and coach (Tom) Crean, I love,” said Moses Morgan, who has made an unofficial visit to Michigan and plans to visit Indiana in June.
Indiana is followed on Morgan’s list by Michigan and Marquette. He also has offers from UNLV and Texas Tech. Utah, Texas and Oklahoma recently expressed interest.
Moses, of course, is the son of Winston Morgan who played at IU for Bob Knight in the 80’s. I’ve scoured the Web looking for more info on the younger Morgan and came across a couple of scouting reports from UMHoops.com, a brilliant Michigan hoops blog. You can read those reports here and here.
Since I haven’t watched Morgan play myself, I can only go by an opinion of a national recruiting guru who told me last night that he wasn’t sure that Morgan is the caliber of player that IU should be coveting. But logical thinking should suggest that it’s best to sit back and let Crean work his magic. We’ll continue to keep a close eye on the situation.
Thanks to ITH reader Jake for the tip.
