Briggs signs with Morehead State

Maurice Briggs, a former standout basketball player at Norristown High School, signed a scholarship to play at Morehead State on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-8 forward is a third-team junior college all-American at Beaver County Community College in Western Pennsylvania. Briggs averaged 23 points and 13 rebounds this past season.

He chose Morehead State over Robert Morris, Maryland Eastern Shore, Tennessee State and Tennessee Tech. Wake Forest also recently expressed some interest.
