Indiana has already received commitments from two wing players for the 2010 class, but that apparently doesn’t change anything for Moses Morgan.
The 6-foot-5, 208-pound swingman from Palo Verde High School in Las Vegas and son of former IU player Winston Morgan is still making an official visit to Indiana and still considers the Hoosiers among his top five. This is despite the recent commitment IU received from Victor Oladipo, a 6-4, 180-pound guard from DeMatha Catholic High School in the Washington, D.C. suburbs.
“It doesn’t change at all,” he said by phone from the airport in Las Vegas, minutes before flying to Indiana. “The interest is still there. I’m still high on them. I’m still hoping to go out there and have a good visit.”
The Hoosiers have one scholarship still available for the 2010 class, and they can also oversign by one. However, Morgan said that hasn’t led to any pressure from the IU staff for him to sign quickly.
“They haven’t put any pressure on me yet,” Morgan said.
Morgan said the Hoosiers are up against DePaul, which he is visiting next week, Minnesota, Arizona State and Clemson. He said he plans to at least take his official to DePaul before making a decision. His visit to Arizona State is scheduled for Oct. 17.
At Bloomington this weekend, Morgan said he’ll be focusing on the atmosphere.
“I’m just looking at the university, the team, the coaching staff, just the overall,” he said. “I’m just looking to have a great time.”
Brandon Mobley, a power forward from Windsor Forest High School in Savannah, Ga., said his interest in IU hasn’t changed either. The 6-foot-9, 215-pounder announced last month that he’s narrowed his choices to IU, South Carolina and Cincinnati and said that hasn’t changed. He doesn’t have any visits scheduled yet, but said he plans on doing that soon.
