Kentucky Wesleyan Adds Bradley Transfer Jermaine Morgan for 2015-16

Kentucky Wesleyan College has added Bradley transfer Jermaine Morgan for the 2015-16 season.

Morgan is a 6-foot-8 forward with one season of eligibility remaining. He averaged 2.5 points and 2.7 rebounds per game last season as a junior.

Here is a release from KWC:

Bradley University center Jermaine Morgan will transfer to eight-time NCAA Division II Champion Kentucky Wesleyan College for his senior season, as announced by Panther head men's basketball coach Happy Osborne.

Morgan, a 6-foot-8, 235-pounder from Chicago (Whitney Young HS), averaged 2.5 points, 2.7 rebounds and 12.1 minutes as a junior where he played in 22 contests with 10 starts in 2014-15 for the Braves. He earned Academic All-Missouri Valley Conference recognition.

Prior to Bradley, Morgan played his sophomore campaign at Moberly Area Community College in Missouri. He led the Greyhounds in blocks with 50 and field goal percentage at 57.8, and finished second in rebounding with 8.4 boards. He earned first team All-NJCAA Region 16 honors.

Morgan averaged 8.5 points, shot 73.7 percent from the free throw line and collected 22 steals in starting all 30 games for head coach Pat Smith, a former KWC student-athlete. The Greyhounds compiled a 23-9 record and a runner up finish in NJCAA Region XVI tournament.

"Jermaine comes to us highly recommended from one of most respected junior college coaches, Pat Smith," stated Osborne. "He's long and athletic who will give us a big presence inside with his rebounding and shot blocking talents.

"It's unfortunate Jermaine was unable to showcase his talents due to an injury for six contests last season. One can see his true capability with his junior college and high school statistics. I love him as a player but more importantly as first-class individual."
