Twins visit ‘Nova; decision may be Thursday


Twin brothers/blue chip basketball recruits Marcus and Markieff Morris returned to APEX Academies in New Jersey on Sunday after spending the weekend at Villanova University in a suburb of their hometown of Philadelphia.

"It was OK," 6-foot-8 forward Marcus said Sunday, referring to the visit. "We haven't made a decision yet. We hope to decide on Thursday."

The two have tentative plans to hold a news conference Thursday, likely in New Jersey, to announce their choice.

Marcus, the No. 37-rated player in the Class by, and Markieff, the No. 78-rated player, signed with Memphis last year but recently were granted a release from their letters-of-intent. They had KU, 'Nova and St. John's on their list of schools, but recently eliminated St. John's.

"We'll talk about it every night and talk to different people then make a decision," Marcus said.
