Marcus Morris was born in Philadelphia in 1989, seven minutes after his twin brother Markieff. The two are so identical that they once switched classes for a full day in the third grade. They followed identical basketball paths, both playing at Preparatory Charter High School in Philadelphia, where they led the Prep Charter High School Eagles to back-to-back State titles in 2006 and 2007. Being young for their grade, they then attended APEX Academy in Pennsauken, New Jersey, where Marcus averaged 24.8 ppg, before committing to play collegiate basketball at the University of Kansas with his brother. As pros, the brothers helped create their Family Over Everything Foundation, which "supports children and families, with a particular focus on single-parent households, by providing high quality programs, services and initiatives that help ease the strains and burdens often felt by single parents, families in underserved communities, and at-risk members of society."
