Shadow Mountain High School is absolutely loaded again this high school season, after winning the 4A state championship last season, and going undefeated throughout their regular season. After winning consecutive state titles, the Matadors are back for the 2017-2018 high school season bigger and better, as a result of some key additions to their roster for the new season.
Another new addition to the Matadors' basketball program is 6-foot-5 sophomore wing Shemar Morrow. A native of California where he attended Har, Morrow recently moved to the state of Arizona, where he will now team up with a very loaded group of talented performers at Shadow Mountain.
Morrow will provide excellent depth and versatility for the Matadors this high school season, as he is a do-it-all type, with excellent athleticism and a nice overall skillset - allowing him to play several positions on the floor, and also defend numerous positions as well. Morrow is a tremendous addition for Shadow Mountain, as a result of such versatility and also his ability to defend - making Shadow pretty much unbeatable in the state of Arizona this high school season.
As a college prospect, Morrow is a superb young talent, and immediately becomes one of the elite prospects in Arizona's 2020 class - a nice recruiting target for many college programs in the country and definitely in the West. I expect this young man to quickly begin receiving loads of college interest, as college coaches begin to see him perform.
Last season, Shadow would eventually fall to top-ranked Montverde (FL) in their final game of the season in the Dick's Sporting Goods National Tournament - finishing with a 27-1 overall record on the season. They will look to return this season to the event and come away as a winner. The addition of Morrow, Memphis transfer, 6-foot-6 junior combo-forward Bruce Guy and talented 6-foot-3 junior guard Jalen Williams will make this team very tough to beat this high school season.
Shadow Mountain has been the class for basketball in the state of Arizona for numerous years now, literally dominating the state's basketball competition. This high school season will be very much of the same, as the Matadors are the strongest they have been.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Morrow is another glaring reason that Shadow Mountain will continue to be absolutely dominant in the state, and will battle for a national championship this season. Well beyond his years physically, Morrow has a nice skill level that allows him to make plays from anywhere on the floor. A left hander that can score inside and out. He plays with an excellent level of confidence and a high motor. He is excellent in the open floor and while slashing to the basket, where he is an excellent finisher and a strong dunker in traffic. He has excellent versatility as a player. He is a good shooter with range on his shot, and also has a solid mid-range game, although that is where he can really develop, to open up his game overall. A very good on-the-ball defender that plays passing lanes. An excellent young prospect.
