Recruiting Update - Morris's father speaks

Sounds like no decision will be coming soon from Randolph Morris (of course this is from a Louisville paper, the archrival of UK):

Morris' decision apparently won't come soon
While speculation about the college destination of high school center Randolph Morris continues to percolate, his father, Ralph, said Friday that he doubts a decision will be announced before May.

The Morris family has been adamant that Randolph, a 6-foot-11 center from Landmark Christian near Atlanta, will attend college. But Ralph Morris said they are considering professional basketball as an option. The University of Kentucky and Georgia Tech are the two colleges the younger Morris is considering.

"We're still trying to sort through everything," Ralph Morris said. "We're going to before we make any kind of announcement. Nothing has really changed."

Even though UK stands one over its scholarship limit for next season with its signees and commitments, it apparently continues to pursue Morris, judging by coach Tubby Smith's attendance at a recent Landmark game in Atlanta.
