Four-star Class of 2017 point guard Darryl Morsell is set to announce his commitment on Wednesday, and he’s deciding between Maryland and Notre Dame.
He’ll make his decision Wednesday afternoon after he gets out of classes at Mount St. Joseph’s, his Baltimore High School.

In Markus’ Baltimore Sun story, Morsell’s father Dwayne said that his son “has made up his mind,” although of course he declined to disclose the winner.
Maryland has been after the Baltimore guard for a while, and seems to be on the right track. Every crystal ball prediction on 247Sports has him choosing the Terps, and four-star center commit Bruno Fernando told InsideMdSports shortly after his own commitment that he believed Morsell would join him.
Morsell is the No. 3 player in Maryland, the nation’s No. 5 combo guard and the No. 79 player overall, per the 247Sports Composite. He’d be a nice get.
