Morris to UW?

Posted by Bob Condotta at 10:48 AM

Interesting twist in Washington's recruiting today with the news that Tim Morris, who played the past two seasons at Stanford, is considering transferring to UW.

Morris is on campus as we speak meeting with UW coach Lorenzo Romar — the two have a long relationship as they are second cousins.

It's likely Morris will make a decision by early next week.

If he transfers to a Division I-A school such as UW, Morris has just one year of eligibility left for the 2007-08 season.

That, obviously, is a year when the Huskies are also targeting a number of current high school juniors to bring in on scholarship.

But as far as I know, taking Morris wouldn't necessarily get in the way of those plans because he might come to UW as a walk-on or as a partial scholarship player.

He transferred from Stanford last month saying he wanted more playing time — he averaged five points and 3.1 rebounds for the Cardinal last season.

Here's a look at Morris' career from ESPN, and another from CNNSI.

Here also is a story from the Stanford student newspaper about Morris' departure.
