The "Squirrel" has become a Gopher.
A source confirmed that Carlos "Squirrel" Morris committed to the Unversity of Minnesota on Monday, shortly before Morris announced the news himself on Twitter.
The 6-4 JUCO shooting guard is the Gophers' third recruit for the 2014 class. He joins Seattle power forward Josh Martin and Georgia guard Nate Mason.
"I just felt like it was the best spot for me," Morris said, via text message.
Morris officially visited the University of Alabama-Birmingham this weekend and committed to the Gophers' staff shortly after returning.
The 6-4 three-star recruit is currently attending Chipola Junior College in Florida. His quickness and athleticism stand to benefit in coach Richard Pitino's uptempo system.
Here's video of Morris:
