DePaul lands a good one

While it may not be a name familiar to Chicago area high school basketball fans, DePaul landed a recruiting coup by picking up a commitment from Moses Morgan, a 6-6 wing out of Las Vegas. Morgan chose the Blue Demons over Oklahoma, Indiana, Texas Tech, Arizona State, UNLV and others.

Morgan, who averaged 17 points and 7 rebounds a game last season as a junior, is the son of former Indiana player Winston Morgan. Morgan is known as a long, athletic wing with the ability to knock down shots and shoot with some range.

"He realizes and understands the challenging situation he is taking on at DePaul," says his father, Winston. "But he wants to be a part of the rebuilding of DePaul basketball. He wants to help get DePaul back on track and play in the country's best conference."

DePaul, with its new staff assisting head coach Jerry Wainright, continues to try and establish new recruiting inroads. The Blue Demons now hope to make a push towards landing an in-state prospect and remain involved with Thornton's athletic guard Reggie Smith.
