BATON ROUGE - LSU men's basketball coach Trent Johnson announced on Tuesday that he has granted signee J'Mison "Bobo" Morgan a release from his national letter of intent that he signed with the Tigers in November 2007.
Morgan is from Dallas, Texas and played at South Oak Cliff High School.
"The bottom line with me will always be that I want players here who want to play for LSU," Johnson said. "There is some closure with this decision, but no player will ever be bigger than the program."
And from the AP :
J’Mison Morgan will not play basketball for Louisiana State University.
Coach Trent Johnson said Tuesday that he had granted Morgan, who played at South Oak Cliff High School in Texas, a release from the letter of intent Morgan had signed in November.
Morgan’s mother, Bianca Morgan, said her son, a 6-foot-10, 275-pound center, will go to UCLA.
She said Morgan wanted to do something different in light of changes in the LSU program.
I'd say we wait to celebrate until Morgan officially signs that nonbinding scholarship agreement with UCLA.
Still great news!
