Seattle Select High Academic Basketball had a good AAU campaign in 2018, and a lot of it had to do with the fact that the young men really jelled as a team. Isaac Morrow fit right into the team concept, and the athletic 6-foot-5, 200-pound wing from Curtis High School focused on doing whatever the team needed from him when he was in the game. His all-around talents have been noticed and he’s been talking to a number of colleges about the possibilities of joining them next fall.
A lot of the interest from schools picked up for Morrow after a solid July. “We played well, especially at the end of Las Vegas and at the West Coast Elite Showcase,” Morrow said. “I felt like I played good, but I could have been more aggressive on offense. But talking to coaches, they like my defense and my ability to play multiple spots. Also that I can knock down the three.”
While he doesn’t have any particular leaders in his recruitment at this point, Morrow recently made a trip to Portland to visit one program that’s been recruiting him. “I like Lewis & Clark a lot,” Morrow said. “I visited the school and it’s located in the woods which I like. Also the coach said that they have seven players leaving over the next two years, so I’ll be able to get some playing time.”
Another school in the mix has been Dominican, which is located in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Division II Penguins have been talking about possibly offering some scholarship money later this fall and that is part of why they are intriguing to Morrow. “I went there for a camp and it’s also in the woods,” Morrow said. “The coach there says they play positionless basketball – they shoot the ball and they pressure the ball a lot on defense. They’ve also got about 2000 students which is kind of small so they can focus on me. I also like how they have a good pre-med program.”
George Fox is another school that has shown some interest, and Morrow continues to talk to Seattle University a bit. What a school has academically in terms of its pre-med program is a big factor for Morrow, as well as how he fits in with the playing style of the basketball program. He noted that he’s planning on playing out his senior season before making any decisions, noting how this season will be the first that he’ll able to play injury free.
