The Cochise College Men’s Basketball team had two of their players sign National Letters of Intent to play at division one universities in the Southland Conference. Sophomores, Jamaure Gregg and Mahki Morris, fulfilled a dream of theirs yesterday 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% shooting 70% while grabbing a team-high 8.3 rebounds per game. He will be attending Northwestern State in Natchitoches, Louisiana. Mahki Morris, out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania led the Apaches in 3-point field goals 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 apart 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.”
