Video: Darius Morris Interview

An exclusive interview with the Michigan signee.

Words by Justin Walsh

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.

    Thought it said “Darius Miles” since it doesn’t I don’t care, yet i still cared enough to comment… Strange.

    Haha, thanks for the comment regardless Justin. To be fair, Darius MORRIS will never make the bufoonery moves Miles did.

    By the way, you can tell that this video was filmed before TMAC shut down the season. Darius is a BLIND Rockets fan.

    Also, for all those wondering, he shouts out Denzel because ‘Zel’s son Malcolm Washington is the other guard on Windward, so they’ve known eachother for a while.

    Hmmm, sounds like the Wolverines are trying to become relevant again.

    B. Long, they WILL be relevant. By the way, if you are a diehard wolverine fan, check UMHOOPS dot com, it’s just about the most in depth site on michigan hoops ever made.
