6-foot-8 power forward Shaquille Morris (Edmond, Okla./Edmond Memorial) verbally committed to Wichita State on Monday, according to The Oklahoman.

Morris chose the Shockers over Oral Roberts, Lamar and Florida Gulf Coast.

"Wichita State is getting a kid who is just now starting to tap into some of the physical promise he has," Memorial coach Shane Cowherd told the paper. "He's very explosive, and his quickness belies his size. He's so physically strong, but he's very quick, almost cat-quick at times. He's very mobile, and he's starting to tap into those tools."

Morris joins point guard Ri'an Holland (Hope Mills, N.C./South View) and power forward Earl Watson (Fort Pierce, Fla./Chipola College) in WSU's 2013 class.

Edmond, Okla. shooting guard Aaron Anderson (Santa Fe H.S.) ended his recruitment last Friday with a verbal pledge to Fresno State, The Oklahoman reported this weekend.

Anderson, the first recruit for the Bulldogs in 2012, also held offers from Oral Roberts and Nevada.

"I don't know if there was one thing that sold him on Fresnon State," Santa Fe coach Shawn Schenk told the paper. "Aaron wanted to be at a place that was competitive, and he really liked what they're doing there in a really good conference."

Anderson averaged 8.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists as a junior last season.

He joins big man Jorden Kaufman (Andover, Kans.) in ORU's 2012 class.
