Morris Decides to Leave Men's Basketball Program
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan men's basketball coach John Beilein announced sophomore/freshman wing K'Len Morris (Grand Blanc, Mich./Grand Blanc HS) has decided to leave the Wolverine program for private personal reasons.
"K'Len has asked for his release from the program and we have granted that to him," said Beilein. "This was an unexpected situation, but given the fact that K'Len's family has moved to Mississippi during the summer we fully understand the choice K'Len had to make for himself. We will continue to offer any support that he will need now and in the future."
"This was a difficult decision to make," said Morris. "Right now, I need to make sure I take care of my family and myself. I want to thank the U-M coaching staff, my teammates and the University as a whole for understanding my situation. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to attend this university and play for a wonderful program. At this time, basketball is just secondary."
After missing 28 games his freshman season due to a left shoulder injury, Morris returned this season seeing action in all 11 games this season off the bench. He has averaged 2.2 points and 1.1 rebounds per contest. He recently had a career-best nine points in a career-best 16 minutes against Oakland (Dec. 12).
Overall, he has played in 18 career games for the Wolverines, averaging 1.6 points and 1.0 rebounds per game.
