Carlos Morris, a 6-foot-5 wing in the class of 2012, is part of a three-headed monster for the U17 Dwight Howard Warriors. The Arlington Country Day (FL) standout teams with fellow high-major recruits Ian Baker ’12 and Solomon Poole ’13 on the Sunshine State squad.

Morris is garnering interest from a number of Big East programs at this point. He lists offers from Cincinnati, Providence, Miami, South Carolina, Georgia and South Florida. The other schools on his list are Florida, Seton Hall, Missouri, Arkansas, and VCU. Morris lists Cincinnati and Georgia as his favorites at this point.

Carlos Morris did not have a great game in the Dwight Howard Warriors’ comeback two-point win over the Charlotte Nets to cap off the evening. Some of that may be attributed to the fact that the team was stuck at the airport for much of the day due to inclement weather and finally got in only about three hours before their rescheduled late game.

Even though he struggled a bit, Morris showed flashes of potential. He can lock up defensively when he puts his mind to it. A long and athletic wing, Morris is somewhat wiry and could use a bit of added bulk to his frame. The rising senior can play both shooting guard and small forward and has the ability to hit shots from beyond the 3-point line. Morris did not wow, but showed a solid all-around game.
Thank you and welcome to the BCT!! I appreciate the help and information.

The new staff at the University of Miami has been aggressive when it comes to offering players. Jim Larranaga and company have offered a number of talented players in multiple classes, and one of those players is class of 2012 standout Carlos Morris.

Morris is a 6-foot-5, 175-pound shooting guard from Apalachicola, Fla. who attends Arlington Country Day (FL). This past weekend Morris and his AAU team, the Dwight Howard Warriors, played in the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions and InsideTheU had a chance to speak with him and see him play.

At this point, Morris lists offers from Cincinnati, Providence, Miami, South Carolina, Georgia, and South Florida. In addition, he is hearing from Florida, Seton Hall, Missouri, Arkansas, and VCU.

Morris added of his school list, “It’s others, but [those are the schools] hitting me the hardest.”

Two schools have made their way to the top of Morris’ list at this stage of his recruitment. “Right now I like Cincinnati and Georgia,” Morris said.

Gamecocks Head Basketball Coach Darrin Horn is on hot pursuit for Carlos Morris out of Jacksonville, F.L.

The 6’5” shooting guard is rated by most as a three star prospect and is said to be considering South Carolina, Cincinnati, Providence, Georgia, Arkansas, West Virginia and Oklahoma State.

Morris averaged 13 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists per game last season. His strengths are his ability to create when the ball is his hands, his range and his defensive skills. With a little coaching, he could be the type wing player USC needs that can penetrate but also play solid defense.

Morris made an unofficial visit to USC last year and said he will use one of his official visits for a return trip this fall. He is likely to make his decision known this November.

Let’s hope Coach Horn can land this kid.

Don't know if we need another 2 guard, but talent is talent. Wouldn't be too disappointed if he went to USC they have a serious need for back court talent post-Downey they have been awful.

He has the ability to be a lockdown defender and he can attack the rim. Much rather have Hawkins or White who could play the 2 or 3.

Good luck to him. I am honestly not heartbroken about this. I think this team needs other positions before another 2 guard.

It still seems likely they will take a 2 guard. Either a 2 or a 3 but a wing player nevertheless.
