LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech head women's basketball coach Kristy Curry has announced the signing of California transfer Casey Morris (Fairfield, Calif./Piedmont H.S.) to a Texas Tech letter of intent. Morris will enroll at Texas Tech for the second summer session, but will sit out the 2009-10 season due to NCAA transfer rules and have three years of eligibility remaining.
"We are very excited to have Casey join our program," said Curry. "She brings a wealth of skills at both guard positions and will have an immediate impact on our team in the 2009-10 season."
Morris, a 5-9 point guard, played in all 34 games last year for California as a freshman, averaging 16.8 minutes per game. Morris also averaged 4.8 points, and scored a career-high 20 points against Saint Mary's.
Morris was ranked No. 35 nationally by Blue Star Report and No. 53 by HoopGurlz.com as a senior in high school, while being ranked the No. 10-best point guard by HoopGurlz.com. The highly recruited Morris was considered by many as the top 2008 point guard in the state of California.
