Nebraska Transfer Ed Morrow Chooses Marquette

The 6’7” Chicago native adds something the Golden Eagles didn’t have in 2016-17.

ESPN’s Jeff Goodman is reporting that Nebraska transfer Ed Morrow has decided to continue his collegiate career while playing for Steve Wojciechowski and YOUR Marquette Golden Eagles.

Morrow played for two seasons at Nebraska, so after sitting out for the 2017-18 season, he’ll have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

In his two injury plagued seasons in Lincoln, Morrow averaged 4 points and 3 rebounds as a freshman before bouncing back with 9 points and 8 rebounds as a sophomore. That might not sound like much, but he was limited in playing time both seasons due to injury.

The key here is that when he was on the court, Morrow was incredibly effective at being a physical interior presence, something that Marquette lacked last season. Morrow ranked #29 in the country in offensive rebounding rate, #196 in defensive rebounding rate, and #175 in block rate as a sophomore, all at only 6’7”. He didn’t have the minutes played to qualify for rankings as a freshmen, but they were comparable numbers to his sophomore campaign.

With Morrow on board and Brendan Bailey expected to enroll, Marquette is projected to have just one scholarship available in the fall of 2018. That should make the next few months fairly interesting in the recruiting world.

Here’s the Marquette scholarship situation with Morrow in the fold.
