Former Simeon star and two-time All American at DePaul University and 2023 Naismith Player of the Year, Aneesah Morrow, announced that she will be transferring to Louisiana State University (LSU) to continue her academic and athletic career.
Morrow made history during her time at Simeon, leading the Wolverines to a 35-2 record in her senior year, helping the team secure their first-ever IHSA State Basketball Championship in girls basketball in 2020. Morrow scored over 1000 career points while in high school and was a top ranked recruit during her entire time at Simeon.
At DePaul, Morrow finished as the Big East leader in rebounds per game, and averaged 25.7 points per game, while shooting 42.5% from the field.
She is excited to bring all that she has learned to her next chapter at LSU.
“I would say it (playing at Simeon) helped me a lot,” Morrow said. ” It prepared me for the high school level and it showed me how tough my opponents are in Chicago.. and I was shown that in the Big East conference as well and now I’m trying to play against the best players in the nation, the best ranked teams across the country.”
Morrow joins and LSU team that just won the 2023 National Championship thanks to the incredible play of college basketball star Angel Reese.
“I’m excited to meet the LSU community,” Morrow said. “The family atmosphere there.. the fanbase is amazing . But when you take away basketball .. LSU had the best opportunities and the best staff in my opinion to allow me to be as successful as I possibly can.”
In addition to her transfer to LSU, Morrow has also signed an Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) deal with Caktus AI.
Morrow is incredibly thankful for her time at Simeon, as her experience at 83rd and Vincennes has prepared her for this exciting moment.
“I would just say thank you. Ill never forget my time at Simeon. It was a part of a life that molded me into the person I am today.”
Morrow and the LSU Tigers will kick off their National Championship defense this coming fall.
