Florida Big Man Headed to Fairfax

At long last Mason has finally reeled in a big man in the 2008 recruiting class. Michael Morrison of St. Petersburg (Fla.) Lakewood has given a verbal to Coach L and at 6'8" (6'9" on some websites) he brings some size that Mason will definitely miss after Will Thomas and Darryl Monroe leave. has an article on him that states he is one of the "best shot blockers in the country". It's difficult for me to remember a time when any Mason forward had more than 2 blocks in a game, so a player like this could add a new dimension to Coach L's defensive schemes. This website ranks Morrison 44th best player in Florida when he was a junior and sadly we all know how well Florida is at producing athletes. Morrison is also a leader, much like the other '08 recruits, as he guided his team to the state championship game last season.

I think I remeber Kenyon Alford (was that his name?) having 3 in a game once, but I'm too lazy to look it up.

Just discovered your blog - very nice!
