Bruins Court New Hoops Sensation to Replace Departing Love
J’Mison Morgan, a 6-foot, 11-inch center out of Dallas, had committed to Louisiana State University for the upcoming season, but now claims to want out. LSU recently fired coach John Brady after a lackluster 13-18 season.
Morgan wants the better exposure found in the more successful Bruins squad rather than stand out in a team that’s in serious need of rebuilding. LSU has the option to release Morgan from his commitment, which would allow him to transfer to UCLA, or to hold him to the commitment, forcing Morgan to sit out for the season before he could seek a transfer the next year.
More B-Ball Transfer Stories Out of LMU
Meanwhile, across town at Loyola Marymount University, the hiring of new coach Bill Bayno has caused freshman standout Orlando Johnson to search for greener pastures. Racking up 12.4 points per game to lead a dismal Lions squad to a 5-26 season, Johnson has yet to narrow down the university he will transfer to and may have to sit out a year under the strict NCAA transfer rules.
Coach Bayno has already brought in sophomore Seton Hall guard Larry Davis as the exodusing freshman’s replacement.
