Brandon Morris, a junior college point guard from Kansas City. (KC) Community College signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Houston Cougars men's basketball program on Thursday. The 6-foot-0, 185-pound guard picked the Cougars over schools like Mississippi State and former Big East Conference foe the Seton Hall Pirates.
The Houston Chronicle's Sam Khan Jr. broke down the addition on his blog:
he can play the point and handle the ball as well as play off the ball and be a scorer. He showcased that range of skills at Kansas City and posted the following numbers in his sophomore season with the Blue Devils: 16.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists, three steals and 2.4 turnovers per game. He shot 57 percent from the field, 40 percent from behind the 3-point line (24-of-60) and 77 percent from the free-throw line.
Morris added that location -- he's from Alexandria, La. -- and the UH coaching staff were the big reasons in his decision.
