Maverick Morgan

While his Springboro team really struggled against the pressure of Prime Prep, 2013 Rivals150 center Maverick Morgan played an excellent all-around game on the interior. The Illinois signee recorded 23 points, including a dominant first half in which he tallied 16, and also had double figure rebounds. Morgan is a skilled 6-foot-10 big man who has improved his coordination, and thus is much more mobile and able to play with physicality than he was in years past.

The senior showed great touch on his mid-range jumper, and was also able to counter the length of the taller Shepherd by going to turn-around jumpers. Part of a highly regarded Illini signing class, Morgan has the look of a Big Ten post prospect, and should be a very nice player in the coming years in Champaign.
