Morris twins stick with Memphis
Philadelphia Daily News
Yes, they're tall and their sport is basketball, but maybe the Morris twins could play running back.
They certainly know how to reverse their fields.
In Saturday's Daily News, the 6-9 Marcus said he and 6-10 Markieff were reopening their recruiting. Memphis coach John Calipari and assistant Derek Kellogg then flew to Philadelphia to meet with them and their mother, Thomasine "Angel" Morris.
The result: They've recommitted.
The Morrises, first-team Daily News All-City selections who led Prep Charter to two consecutive PIAA Class AA state titles, will still attend a prep school, most likely in Florida. As non-qualifiers, the letters of intent they signed last November are no longer binding.
They intended to reopen their recruiting only to be positive Memphis would be the best choice.
"Coach Calipari was concerned," Markieff said last night. "He talked with us, and also with our mom. Just made sure of some things. Like our mom said, once you make a commitment to something, you really should stick with it." *
