LSU's Johnson confirms release of Morgan

From The Daily Bruin:

Louisiana State men’s basketball coach Trent Johnson confirmed Tuesday that star recruit J’Mison Morgan will be released from his commitment to the school.

 ...

The Bruins can finally contact Morgan now that LSU has released him from his letter of intent.

 Not much to say that hasn't already been said at BN about this situation. Hopefully Morgan does indeed come to UCLA and hopefully he can be at least a part-time impact player next year, considering our lack of big men.

Gordon, and potentially Morgan, would receive ample opportunity to start next season as the Bruins must replace Love and center Lorenzo Mata-Real. Junior forward Alfred Aboya may also leave the team to focus on academics, which would open another spot on the roster for the incoming post players.

This last bit is what I'd like to call the "Love Effect." Rare is it that a freshman, especially a freshman big man, comes in and contributes immediately. Rarer still is it when that player wins the POY award in the Pac-10. I have big hopes for Morgan, sure. But Alfred Aboya is a seasoned veteran, a vastly improved player in his time here, a key to our success next year, and a great Bruin, a true representative of our university. I'm sure the author did not intend a slight at Aboya, but it came out sounding that way.

To next year! Go Bruins!
