Congrats to Jordan Morgan for signing to play pro ball in Italy with Virtus Roma (Italian-language press release). Even from the Google translation, I think the gist of the following comes through:
This comment gm Nicola Alberani: "Morgan is a solid player, and square. We give substance into the area and depth in attack. He comes from a background of basketball very high, in fact of three of his college classmates were selected to the NBA Draft this year. For a number of factors that I have not had the exposure it deserves, because it is a team player willing to sacrifice. It has important human qualities and not surprisingly he was captain at Michigan University."
And here's what Morgan had to say (roughly translated):
These are the first words of Morgan as a player of Virtus: "I'm lucky to start my career as a professional team with a historic and prestigious as Virtus, in a lovely city like Rome. I'm excited for the team we're putting together, I can not wait to meet my new teammates and to take the field."
His teammates will include Iowa State grad Melvin Ejim, who just signed with Virtus Roma a few days ago; former Syracuse player Brandon Triche, who signed with the team last week; former Louisiana Tech player Kyle Gibson; and point guard Perry Petty.
