Arterio Morris is an electrifying 6’3 combo guard who has one of the highest ceilings of anyone in this recruiting class due to his elite athleticism, strength for the guard position, high basketball IQ, and an elite handle. Morris can slither past defenders and finish well in the lane with either hand. He is also a plus defender who can guard multiple positions. Morris is such a smart player to go along instincts you just can’t teach. He needs to improve his jump shot through form shooting and more game reps, as well as continuing to improve his decision making. However, if and when Morris improves those facets of his game, he can become one of the best guards in this class.
2021 Pangos All-American Camp - Las Vagas, NV - 6/6-8/2021
Shot the ball well from behind the 3pt line, off the dribble and the catch. Did a good job of getting into the lane, drawing defenders and dropping off passing to his big. Has a quick burst first step. Gets after it on the defensive end.
