UTEP HOOPS: Meet new Miner Earvin Morris

KTSM
UTEP

POSTED: Thursday, July 10, 2014 - 7:13pm

UPDATED: Friday, July 11, 2014 - 1:11pm

The old saying goes, "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again." That mantra rings true for one of UTEP's newest basketball players.

Earvin Morris originally signed and played his freshman season at Kent State but after 17 appearences including one start with the Golden Flashes, tranfered to Tallahassee Community College. In his one season of JUCO, the 6-foot-4 guard averaged 14.4 points this season at Tallahassee Community College, shooting 50.5 percent from the field and 46.9 percent from three-point range.

"My first situation, it was hard. But the JUCO route, it was good for me. I was glad that UTEP was calling me and wanted me to come here," said Morris. "It feels amazing. I feel like I took the first chance for granted but I'm just very happy to be back."

“Earvin is a very versatile player who can play different positions and score in a lot of ways,” Head Coach Tim Floyd said. “He is a very instinctive passer, has the ability to shoot the three and can create his own shot. He played at a very competitive level in junior college. He can come in and help our team score in a variety of ways. We love his ability to post in addition to being able to face the basket. He has a very nice mid-range game, which is rare in today’s game.

“Earvin made tremendous improvement from his freshman year to his sophomore year of college under the direction of coach Eddie Barnes. He displayed a willingness to be coached which translated into a great sophomore season.”

Morris will have two years of eligibility with the Miners.
