Quin has gone out and found himself another recruit. Fitting MU tradition, Ty Morrison, a 6' 7" forward from Redlands Junior College, is a mediocre player with poor hands. He showed some ability to score inside as a freshman, averaging 10 points and 5 boards (against JC talent). One commentator on Yoco made this comment:
Ty Morrison didn't get the memo; the junior college stud yesterday signed with Missouri. No worries, however. His interst in Mizzou's journalism school should (at least) help him write the story of Quin Snyder's downfall.
Even the Redlands coach, commenting on Morrison's commitment to Quin Snyder's program, didn't have flattering things to say:
"He hit the weights hard and he's a strong kid. When he first got in as a freshman he'd drive and get bumped and it would go out of bounds. Now, knock on wood, he doesn't lose it as much."
Instead of putting up a picture of Morrison, Scout.com posted a picture of a smiling, greasy-haired Quin when writing about the commitment. Worse yet, it was an AP file photo, not even a recent picture!
It will be interesting to see how Morrison pans out.
