Gibbons’ Morales commits to Princeton

Cardinal Gibbons all-state point guard Jose Morales will take his throwback skill set to Princeton. Morales, a fiery competitor with a pass-first philosophy, followed his official visit to Princeton this past weekend with an oral commitment to the Tigers on Monday.

"Princeton definitely jumped on top of the other programs when I took my visit," Morales said. "I fell in love with the school. I love the family atmosphere, not just with the players but with the entire school. I’m excited about playing in the Princeton offense.”

Morales also entertained offers from Harvard, Yale, Creighton and Air Force, among others. As a junior the Puerto Rico National U-18 team member averaged a career-high 16.2 points, 9.6 assists, 4.1 rebounds and led the Chiefs (24-6) to a 59-58 victory over eventual Class 5A state champions American Heritage in the District 16-5A Final.

In a Class 5A regional semifinal rematch with Heritage, the Morales-led Chiefs pushed the Patriots to the limit before losing 62-59. Morales also earned Tournament MVP honors in leading the Chiefs to its first BCAA Big 8 title and the Kreul Classic title.
