Darius Morris, starting PG for Windward sits down with Matt Rodriguez to chat about his senior season, his Michigan commitment, playing with Demar DeRozan and Euroleague star Brandon Jennings and much more.
On a completely non-related note, who else thinks Matt is the next Barbara Walters? I mean, just look at those hard hitting questions. And his GAP pullover is without a doubt the basketball version of Barbara’s pantsuits. Back to basketball, Darius has led his Windward squad to a top seed in the playoffs and is having a solid senior campaign, coming off a nagging injury. He’s also got a solid IQ on and off the court. His favorite quote serves notice:
“As expectations grow, I grow as an individual, which makes our team grow as a unit… so I love it. I love the adversity, I love the expectations from everybody.”
When Darius arrives at Michigan in August, the expectations will be high. Wolverine faithful are placing their hope in Morris to bring the program back to its storied past. Bask in the expectations, Darius.
