Jermaine Morgan Commits to WSU

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Ken Bone lands his second recruit of the 2014 class, PF Jermaine Morgan of Moberly Area Community College.

Britton Ransford over at WazzuWatch earlier broke the story ($) that Jermaine Morgan, a 6'8" PF from Moberly Area Community College verballed to Washington State today.  Morgan also makes it public on his twitter page:

Morgan is from Whitney Young High School in Chicago and played AAU for the storied Mac Irvin Fire program (Mac Fire alums include Derrick Rose, Eric Gordon and Jabari Parker and currently has one of the top recruits in the country, Jahlil Okafor, on its roster.)

In 2012, Scout rated Morgan a three-star recruit who initially committed to Colorado State and also received interest from Nebraska, Virginia Tech and Iowa before joining Moberly Area.   This time around, it appears WSU landed Morgan against a hard push from Geno Ford and Bradley, and according to Bradley's beat writer, was also drawing interest from Kansas State, Wichita State and DePaul.

Through six games this season, Morgan is averaging 8.5 points and 8.3 rebounds for the Greyhounds

Here's a high school highlight film featuring Morgan.  Recent videos are harder to find.  Morgan shares the same first and last name with a very famous bass player and a dude who shot up a club in Toronto, so he's tough to google.

Morgan is the 2nd known commit in Ken Bone's 2014 class, joining Tramaine Isabell from Garfield.  Start printing your Tramaine & Jermaine t-shirts now, kids.  Barring surprises, this should be a three-man class, replacing D.J. Shelton, Will DiIorio and the spot once held by Danny Lawhorn.  Cougcenter authors have speculated Bone will probably go with another JC/transfer big or JC/transfer scorer to round out the class.

UPDATE: Looking at Moberly's 2012-13 Roster, I don't see Morgan logging any time.  If this is accurate, he may have three years to play three years (a D.J. Shelton scenario) rather than just two.
