A criticism of college basketball is a lack of true, intelligent point guards. Darius Morris is set on ending that trend.

Darius grew up tagging along with his brother Dewayne Morris Jr. who’s currently playing professionally in Germany. That, coupled with the playing for the AAU dynasty Belmont Shore (recent alumni include Demar Derozan and Brandon Jennings), definitely helped shape Morris’ basketball IQ. A 3.7 GPA doesn’t hurt either. Darius Morris has the whole package.

Michigan is in for the real deal. An intelligent point guard dedicated to staying in school and receiving his degree, with a work ethic on the court to rival any blue-chipper has found his home. Manny Harris will finally get some backcourt help, and with the recent signed recruits Jordan Morgan and Blake McLimans, Darius feels he can put Michigan back on the map.
