HoopsHype Markieff Morris rumors
Marcus and Markieff are both expected to be picked in the first round of the June draft. "I have thoroughly enjoyed my three seasons as a Kansas Jayhawk and consider it a privilege to have had the opportunity to play for coach Self and his staff," Marcus said in a statement. "It was a difficult decision, but I feel it's the right time for me to realize my dream to play in the National Basketball Association." Kansas City Star
Kansas coach Bill Self said about a week ago that he wouldn't be surprised if the twins turned pro, "but certainly it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't. It's kind of up in the air." It sure isn't anymore. "I have enjoyed my three seasons as a Kansas Jayhawk, and consider it a privilege to have had the opportunity to play for Coach Self and his staff," Marcus Morris said in a statement. "It was a difficult decision, but I feel it's the right time for me to realize my dream." Marcus, a second-team All-American, averaged 17.2 points and 7.6 rebounds last season, while Markieff was an honorable-mention All-American after averaging 13.6 points and 8.3 rebounds. "As I move on to the professional stage of my career, I will always remember my time as a Jayhawk," Markieff Morris said. "Playing here has prepared me for the opportunity to have a successful career in the NBA." SI.com
KU juniors Marcus and Markieff Morris have yet to announce whether they will enter the draft or return for their senior seasons. “The twins are back in class, in school. They did go to L.A. (last week to meet with an aspiring agent). The (Morris) family paid for the trip. A decision is close, but has not been made yet,” Self said. Lawrence Journal-World
