Monte Morris calls Indiana a “big part” of his recruitment

FISHERS, Ind. — Indiana has shown considerable interest in class of 2013 Michigan guard Monte Morris recently, and the feelings seem to be mutual.

Morris, who attends Beecher High School in Flint, said Indiana is very much a part of his recruitment.

The Hoosiers visited his high school in early April to watch one of his workouts, but they have yet to offer him a scholarship.

Indiana coach Tom Crean was on hand to see Morris’ adidas Spring Classic game with the Michigan Mustangs at the Fishers Fieldhouse Saturday morning and Calbert Cheaney, who has been filling in for the departed Bennie Seltzer during the April evaluation periods, watched Morris on Sunday.

Morris and the Mustangs fell to Luke Fischer and Wisconsin Swing 82-75 in the championship game of the 17-and-under Super Group. He finished with 24 points.

“They just started coming on,” Morris said. “I talk to their coaching staff a lot, so it’s good. They like the way I lead, and they say I can come in there and make an impact right away, play the combo guard next to Yogi [Ferrell].

“I really like their coaching staff and their program, the way their style of play is and everything. It’s a big part of my recruitment.”

Morris, ranked No. 48 in the class of 2013 by Scout.com and No. 82 by Rivals.com, said he already has offers from Georgia Tech, Rhode Island, Providence, USC, Boston College, Arizona State and Illinois.

Butler has also shown interest but has not yet offered him a scholarship.

Morris is scheduled to visit IU on May 4, and he said he’ll try to make his decision by the end of the summer “if everything goes well.”

    Being from Flint is Michigan State, Michigan, Purdue, or Ferris State (kidding) involved?  Flint is a MSU pipeline, how are they not mentioned?

    Monte really has a nice game that would compliment Yogi and our bigs. Could also be that other PG we need to handle the ball.

    Hope we don’t lose out on him because we were waiting for Robinson, Lee, Anya, etc. to make their decisions. Just hoping for the best, hopefully Crean can gauge the other guys interest and know if he’ll have a free scholarship

    This goes to show a perfect example of where Indiana now is on the recruiting landscape. Look who has offered and look at his statements. As soon as Indiana offers the other respective schools do not stand a chance. Indiana is back to where it should be in this aspect. A dream destination for a basketball player. Eventually this will continue to progress and consistently top 10 recruits will show the same tendencies.

    With that said Tom Crean is a master at building a team with players who each fit s piece to the puzzle. It is evident that he would win every fantasy league he was in. Just sayin…Love ya CTC

    ain’t it wonderful what national TV coverage and a Sweet 16 apperance does for your recruiting…especially if the program has a pedigree!

    I’m not an expert on the recruiting process (“waiting”), but are we really “waiting” on others to commit?  I thought that once we’ve offered someone a scholarship, they can commit anytime and not wait for another IU “green light”?  anyone know?

    Those guys can commit whenever they want. But we haven’t offered this guy, and he’d like to come to a decision by the end of the summer. So if we have extended scholarships that haven’t been answered yet, we don’t know if we can offer him yet.
