Morrill gets a 2014-er

Sam Merrill announces it himself: "I'm gonna be an Aggie. I've committed to play basketball at Utah State!!" (before catching the error, we had it mis-spelled as Sam Morrill, not Sam Merrill -- talk about a Freudian)

Tony Jones scoops with the details.

From Hoopniks on April 29:

Sam Merrill, 6′-3″, 2014, PG/SG, Utah Hoops/Bountiful (UT) – Like his teammate Chapman, Merrill has an unassuming demeanor but a highly-skilled game. He is capable with the ball in his hands, and is adept at both mid-range to outside shooting, and on takes to the paint. With suitable size and court vision, Merrill played exceedingly well, especially in tight situations.
With really only three prominent D-1 programs in state, Utah State enjoys a nice home state advantage vis-a-vis other WAC opponents. That's built-in but there's still the issue of landing kids and Morrill does a fine job there.
