Terps' Morris could be close to a decision

He discusses NBA vs. UM with mother and coaches

Terence Morris could make a decision soon on whether he will play a fourth season at Maryland.

After the Terps' season was ended in the second round of the NCAA tournament, the junior forward from Frederick's Thomas Johnson said he would weigh his stock in the NBA draft. A 6-foot-9 forward, Morris could enter his name in the draft, or return to College Park for his senior season.

Morris and his mother, Roxanne Bright, met last Tuesday to discuss his development and future with Tom Dickman, his high school coach. Maryland was on semester break last week, when Morris also spoke with coach Gary Williams about issues that would weigh on his decision.

"We talked last week," Williams said last night. "We're having a team meeting [today], and we'll probably talk again then. It's just a process of Terence making up his mind."

Morris was a first-team All-ACC selection as a sophomore. He improved his scoring and rebounding averages this season, but dropped to second-team All-ACC.
