Ja Morant is a 22- year- old American professional basketball player playing for the Memphis Grizzlies. He played college basketball for Murray State Racers before joining Memphis Grizzlies. 

In Murray State Racers, Morant was a consensus first-team as a sophomore in 2019. He was in the 2019 NBA draft, and that is when the Grizzlies picked him. In 2020, Morant was named the NBA Rookie of the year, and in 2022, he was named in his first NBA All-Star Game as a starter.

Despite getting All-State honours at Crestwood High and being rated the All-Region Most Valuable Player three times, Morant remained unranked by recruiting services. The NCAA Division program only lightly recruited him. This did not stop him from making an immediate impression at Murray State University. He earned his team all-conference honours in the Ohio Valley Conference as a freshman. 

As a sophomore, Ja Morant had a breakout that saw him bag the Ohio Valley Conference player of the year and lead the National Collegiate Athletic Association in assists. At this time, he became the first player in the National Collegiate Athletic Association history to average 10-plus points in assists and 20-plus points per game for a single season.
