J’Mison “Bobo” Morgan Bound for Bruins
It’s looking like UCLA may have nabbed a big man to fill the void in the middle left by Kevin Love. The highly touted 6’10″ 275 lb. Center J’Mison “Bobo” Morgan out of Dallas has been granted a release from his LSU LOI and looks set to sign on as a Bruin next year, reports the Times. (If “J’Mison ’Bobo’” isn’t the single greatest first name/nickname combo ever, then I don’t know what is.)
One can hear the Pauley student section chant now: Let’s go, Bo-bo! CLAP-CLAP CLAP-CLAP-CLAP! Let’s go, Bo-bo! CLAP-CLAP CLAP-CLAP-CLAP! Etc.
Given this serendipitous development, K. Love’s quick split for the NBA may just turn out to be a blessing if it played any part in helping sway Bobo to come Westwood. Add him to #2 national recruit Jrue Holiday starting at guard in next year’s lineup, and the Bruins are shaping up to make another deep run at a banner–so long as they can Get. Bobo. The. Ball–no mean feat with Howland’s sketchy offensive X’s & O’s.
