The Cochise College Men’s Basketball team had two of their players sign National Letters of Intent to play at NCAA Division 1 universities in the Southland Conference.
Sophomores Jamaure Gregg and Mahki Morris fulfilled a dream of theirs Thursday as they both officially accepted full-ride scholarships to play basketball at the highest collegiate level. The sophomores were key to the success of this year’s team as they started all games that they played in and were recognized as top players in the league with multiple postseason awards given to each of them.
Jamaure Gregg, from El Paso, Texas, was able to lead the Apaches in FG percentage, shooting 70 percent while grabbing a team-high 8.3 rebounds per game. He will attend Northwestern State in Natchitoches, Louisiana.
Mahki Morris, out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, led the Apaches in 3-point field goals made and was instrumental to the team’s success. Morris will be headed to Abilene, Texas, to play for Abilene Christian University, who just recently played in the NCAA Tournament.
“Jamaure and Mahki had stellar careers here at Cochise College. They were a part of 49 wins and one conference championship,” Head Coach Jerry Carrillo said. “The body of work that these two individuals have been a part of these past two years are greatly appreciated. We are excited they are signing to D1 universities and even more excited that they have signed to play at schools that compete in the same conference.”
