Ja Morant, the guard from Murray State, is already considered a Top 5 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft Class. Bleacher Report is even considering him to be the second best, obviously behind Zion Williamson of Duke. Morant started his career at Crestwood High School in Sumter, South Carolina. Something that many don’t know is that Morant was able to play on the same Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) circut where he played for team SC. In high school he was the team’s all-time leading scorer (1,679) and scored the most points in a game with 47. As a junior and senior, he was awarded the South Carolina Class 3A All-State, and including his sophomore season was a three-time All-Region MVP. He was never highly recruited and only received one major recruitment from D1 South Carolina. The other D1 offers that he received were from Duquesne, Maryland Eastern Shore, South Carolina State, and Wofford.

During his Freshman year Morant put up per game 12.7 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 6.3 assists. Morant earned first-team All-OVC and OVC All-Newcomer Team accolades, during Freshman season as well.  As a sophomore Morant has taken the lead role for Murray State. He became the college’s first-ever player to record multiple triple doubles. He became the first player in D1 basketball in 20 years to put up at least 40 points, 10 assists, and 5 steals. Murant is excelling very well as a sophomore and will most likely have a very successful NBA career.
