From Fox Sports - On Why The Morris Twins Mights Have Snubbed The Tigers

DIVORCE FINAL

The on-again, off-again soap opera between the Morris Twins and Memphis is over.

Marcus and Markieff Morris, a pair of forwards out of Philadelphia who will attend Apex Academies this season, have decided to re-open their recruitment for the second time.

``We didn’t want to go somewhere that we’re not 100 percent sure about,” Marcus Morris told FOXSports.com on Sunday night. ``It wasn’t anything specific.”

Maybe not, but all you have to do is look at their former high school coach, Dan Brinkley at Prep Charter, to find out why the twins didn’t stand true to their pledge to John Calipari and the Tigers.

Brinkley was adamant that his kids weren’t going to play for Calipari – even though Marcus denied that fact to FOXSports.com.

There’s a reason that Marcus and Markieff wound up at Apex Academies with a bunch of no-name Division 1 hopefuls. Apex is local and Brinkley wanted to retain as much control over the decision-making process as possible.
