"Blake played really well at the start of the year and deserves to have his season extended," said Ole Miss head coach Ernest Ross. "The LSU University Club course is very challenging, but Blake loves all challenges.  His goal is to make NCAA Finals and I would love to see him make it.  Blake has a strong desire to excel, and desire goes a long way in our sport."

"I'm really excited to represent the university, my coaches and teammates in the NCAA Championships," said Morris. "I wish we were going as a team, and I'm heartbroken for my teammates, but I will do all I can to represent the university and my teammates to the best of my abilities at LSU."

Joining Morris in the individuals selected to participate in the regional include: Jonathan Grey, Georgia State; Tomasz Anderson, Jacksonville State; Alex Ellis, College of Charleston; Kamito Hirai, Winthrop; Sam Bernstein, Yale; Josh Lorenzetti, College of Charleston; Josh Waters, LIU Brooklyn; Steve Burak, Fairfield; Chris House, Navy.
