Zach Morley Commits
Morley visited Madison early this weekend and made his commitment Saturday. He chose the Badgers over Minnesota, New Mexico, Utah and Iowa State, among others.
With the much-heralded Brian Butch arriving in next year's class as well, the Badgers appear to have significantly upgraded their frontcourt. Morley averaged 15.2 points and 8.2 rebounds per game last season, leading the Warriors in both categories, shooting 33.3 percent from 3-point range. Morley led Indian Hills, a nationally-renowed JUCO program, to 29-6 and 25-8 finishes the last two seasons.
Indian Hills Coach Lorenzo Watkins told The Insiders that Morley is capable of contributing at the Division I level.
"Zach can play the three and the four. He runs the floor well, he can put the ball on the floor and he can shoot the three," Watkins said. "Zach is not a flashy player, but he plays hard and will be a quality contributor at the D-1 level. Zach will go out and get you 8-10 points and 7-10 rebounds a game. He is smart and never forces anything. He is a total team player."
Morley's commitment gives the Badgers three verbal commitments for 2003, including Butch and Minneapolis point guard Kammron Taylor. Wisconsin also received great news earlier this month with the commitment of Penn State star Sharif Chambliss to transfer to the program for one season, 2004-05.
With back-to-back Big Ten championships and a solid recruiting class, the Badgers are flying high early in the offseason.
