Dallas Morgan signed with Central Michigan University of the MAC Conference. Morgan, a 6’1” guard from Peoria, Illinois was a two year player for the Greyhounds and was part of squads which posted a 53-10 record, won 6 championships and two top 15 national poll finishes. During the 2017-18 season Morgan averaged 10.3 points per game along with 2 rebounds per game. The long range shooter lead the Hounds with 74 made three pointers while hitting over 40 percent from behind the arc. Morgan will be following former Greyhound players RayShawn Simmons and Cecil Williams who both enjoyed outstanding careers with the Chippewas. Former Greyhound Coach Kyle Gerdeman is also on staff with Central Michigan.

Matlock, a 6’5”, 220 lb. transfer sophomore, will be continuing his education and playing career at Eastern Illinois University in the Ohio Valley Conference. Matlock had a tremendous sophomore season for MACC as he averaged 9.4 points per game along with 7.5 rebounds while also shooting 57.3 % from the field. He is from Hopkinsville, Kentucky and won the Best Defensive Award, Sophomore Award and Leadership Awards at the team’s banquet.

“We are so proud of the these two young fine young and the excellent representation they gave our MACC program,” said Coach Patrick Smith, “They both deserve these opportunities and while they will be missed, cannot wait to follow their progress the next two seasons and there are great things ahead for Dallas and JaQualis. It was my honor to have coached both of them.
