Edmond Memorial basketball player Shaquille Morris will announce his college decision live on NewsOK.com/Sports at 5 p.m. Monday.

The 6-foot-8 senior power forward will decide between Wichita State, Oral Roberts, Lamar and Florida Gulf Coast. Several other schools, including Tulsa, Tulane and Fresno State have been involved in his recruiting over the last year.

Morris was a key player for Edmond Santa Fe the last two seasons, but moved to Memorial during the summer, where he will team with point guard Jordan Woodard, an Oklahoma commit.

Morris averaged 13.0 points and 5.6 rebounds as a junior last season.


Senior Dale Jefferson has been one of quarterback Justice Hansen's most explosive targets on offense for Edmond Santa Fe.

Friday, in a critical game against Norman that figured to decide the District 6A-4 title, Jefferson had to watch from the sideline after suffering a shoulder injury in the Wolves' game a week earlier against Lawton.

Santa Fe coach Lance Manning said he expected Jefferson to play this weekend when his team faces Edmond Memorial. A win would clinch the district title.

Jefferson has 404 yards and four touchdowns receiving, averaging more than 16 yards per catch.


Two more wins and Pauls Valley will capture its first district crown since 2001.

The Panthers remained unbeaten in district play with a 57-41 thrashing of Atoka on Thursday night.
