Marquette Adds Transfer Forward Ed Morrow
Ed Morrow (Chicago, IL/Simeon HS), who has spent the past two seasons at the University of Nebraska, is joining the Marquette University men’s basketball program, head coach Steve Wojciechowski announced Tuesday morning.
Morrow, 6-7, 235-pounder, will arrive on campus in the summer of 2017 and have two years of eligibility with the Golden Eagles after redshirting in 2017-18 in accordance with NCAA transfer rules.
“We are very excited about Ed’s decision to join our basketball family here at Marquette,” Wojciechowski said. “He has already proven to be a terrific player at the collegiate level and throughout the process I was impressed by his maturity and desire to become the best player he can be in a Golden Eagle uniform. He will be a tremendous asset moving forward.”
The Lincoln, Nebraska, native appeared in 54 career games, earning 19 starting assignments. He chipped in 6.4 points and 5.2 rebounds per contest, while shooting 55.3 percent from the field. As a sophomore in 2016-17, he posted game averages of 9.4 points and 7.5 boards (highest average by Nebraska player since 2007-08) and started 18 of the squad’s 24 outings (missed time with foot injury).
A nationally ranked prep prospect at Simeon Career Academy, Morrow played for Robert Smith and developed into a unanimous first team all-state honoree as a senior in 2014-15. He chipped in 17.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game and had nine double-doubles. He claimed all-city accolades as a junior and helped the program to its fourth-straight state title as a sophomore in 2012-13. The squad finished 30-3 that season and featured current member of the Milwaukee Bucks, Jabari Parker.
Morrow competed on the AAU circuit for the Mac Irvin Fire.
