Darius Morris is a Michigan Wolverine.

Darius Morris, a 6'3, 175 lb point guard out of Windward School in Los Angeles, CA., will attend the University of Michigan to play basketball in the 2009-10 season. Before Darius committed, he was the #1 target on Michigan’s recruiting board for some time and is the perfect pass-first playmaking point guard for John Beilein’s offense. Darius is a pure point guard, even at 6′3 plus, he is more of a point guard than a shooting guard. Darius is savvy floor leader who is an efficient but not spectacular scorer. He has the length, size, and athleticism to become a very good defender. The knocks on Darius have been pretty consistent. The first is that he forces the issue, and often times get’s too showy and tries to make the fancy play instead of the smart one. The second fault in Darius’ game is his shot; while he has improved his shot over the last year his low release still plagues him. Also, he leaves his feet while passing and that is unacceptable in the eyes of a coach. He'll need to clean up those areas of his game if he expects to play immediately at Michigan.
