Moses Morgan on IU: ‘I have a very high interest in them’

  • 07/15/2009 7:00 am in

The last time we caught up with Moses Morgan in early May, there was one school at the top of his list: Indiana.

And the 2010 wing and son of former IU player Winston Morgan is still high on the Hoosiers.

“They are still recruiting me very hard,” Morgan told Inside the Hall from the NY2LASports.com Summer Jam in Milwaukee. “I have a very high interest in them and they have a very high interest in me.”

Morgan is playing this summer for the ICAN All-Stars and hopes to fit in a visit to Bloomington to check out the IU campus soon.

“Probably the middle of August,” Morgan said of a timetable for a possible trip.

The 6-5 wing, who is also being recruited by Arizona, Memphis, Oklahoma, UNLV, Marquette and Utah, attended the LeBron James Skills Academy last week and got a chance to learn from the Cleveland Cavs star.

“We got to play with LeBron a little bit, Morgan said. “He spoke to us a few times with the wing players during drills. Just going up against him was a great experience. When we were doing drills on running the wing and catching and shooting, he talked about being ready to make your move without traveling. I tend to do that sometimes.”

Morgan also witnessed the now infamous dunk by former IU guard Jordan Crawford on James during a pick-up game and offered his thoughts.

“I saw it,” he said. “The people I was sitting with were going crazy. Everybody else was going crazy too. It was pretty bad for LeBron.”

    I like the kid a lot. I would love a commitment from him if it wasn't for David Williams.

    apparently he's ours for the choosing. I like a guy that likes IU. Seems like a solid fit for Crean's system, a great athlete with a developing game, a four-year guy who has got, from what I hear, a “Big Ten body” already…he's being recruited by some major programs, too.

    also, off the subject, but has anyone seen or heard much about Michael Cobbins? Jody Demling mentioned him a couple of times in regards to IU in his chat yesterday. I hadn't heard about him. Apparently we've offered. He seems like a solid recruit, athletic 6-8 forward. Also has offers from AZ, OK, OK St and Tony Bennett's new regime at Virginia. Any impressions/thoughts?

    Alex suggested we check out JDemling's open chat on recruiting..here is what he said about IU. “I still think IU gets Kyrie Irving and he'd be the centerpiece of a nice Class of 2010 that already includes David Williams. They'll get Cameron Wright or Moses Morgan – whichever they want! Plus, could add a guy like Michael Cobbins. Not sure how many they will take because '11 is loaded in Indiana, but Irving-Williams-Morgan(Wright)-Cobbins wouldn't be a bad class. Then again, Stacey Poole. Hmm, dang this is hard too do. And just think '11 will be tougher.. ” Thanks to both Alex and Jody. Cobbins is new to me too

  • Haven't had a chance to see Cobbins play. I believe he dislocated his knee cap at the Reebok camp and is out for the rest of the summer. IU has offered. From what I've read, he seems to be pretty open in the recruiting process. He's an intriguing guy because of his size and athleticism.

    When it comes to recruiting and scholarship numbers, I'm kind of becoming some sort of Little Engine That Could, repeating over and over, “I trust Coach Crean, I trust Coach Crean, I trust Coach Crean” but it certainly does make me nervous. However, I'd rather have a flood of talented recruits interested in coming here than a drought. You just have to hope Crean gets the right ones from the flood.

    That said, is there any chance at all that Morgan would come to IU as a walk-on and save us the scholarship?

  • I don't think there is a chance Morgan would come as a walk-on. Especially when he has D-I offers from the likes of Marquette, Michigan, UNLV and others.
