J'mison Morgan Asks for Release from LSU, UCLA Becomes Leader

Atlanta, GA 5/06/2008 06:11 AM GMT (TransWorldNews)

J'mison Morgan, one of the top 40 high school basketball recruits in the nation, has decommitted from LSU Monday, opening up his recruitment to other options.

Morgan, a 6-foot-10, 275-pound center from South Oak Cliff H.S. in Dallas, has officially asked for a release from his letter-of-intent that he signed to the LSU Tigers. Morgan signed with LSU in the early signing period and when John Brady was the head coach of the SEC school.

Brady was fired at the end of the season and was replaced by Stanford head coach Trent Johnson.

UCLA will be strongly considered once Morgan is released from his National Letter of Intent due to the departure of freshman sensation Kevin Love. UCLA has a top-five recruiting class without Morgan, but with him, the Bruins may be able to return to the Final Four.
