The Halifax Hurricanes announce the signing of 6'5" guard Langston Morris-Walker, from Berkeley, California. Morris-Walker was a four year player at Oregon State University graduating in 2016 where he compiled 613 pts, 302 rebounds and 86 assists.
"I feel great," says Morris-Walker on his recent signing to the Hurricanes. "Excited to get up to Halifax and get started! Ready to get to work and join a winning tradition."
In 2017, he played in Mexico averaging 16 points per game and 5.5 rebounds while shooting 40% from the 3 point line. In 2017-18 he played in Sweden averaging 17 points and grabbing 7 rebounds per game while shooting 53% from the field and 37% from 3 point range. He was named Player of the Week and was also selected as a Eurobasket All Swedish Superettan 2nd team all star.
"Langston is a very complete basketball player who competes hard at both ends of the court. Although he puts up very good numbers at the offensive end, he thrives at the defensive end using his athleticism and high energy to shut down opponents and rebound the basketball from the guard position. Coming out of high school he was one of the top recruits in the country, ranking 29th overall in the nation at small forward, which speaks to the quality of his game," says Head Coach Mike Leslie. "He is very unselfish and has had games where he dished out 8 assists, yet at the defensive end has had multiple games where he has recorded at least 3 steals per game."
This past summer he played with the Portland Trail Blazers of the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, Nev., featuring the top player prospects of each of the thirty NBA teams for the upcoming season.
