The crash happened about 1:10 a.m., the GSP said.
Morkem’s car was heading south when it traveled off the west shoulder, according to the GSP. The car went along the shoulder for more than 200 feet and hit a utility pole. It came to an uncontrolled rest on the west shoulder facing south.
Morkem started 27 games last season, averaging 8.1 points and 4.8 rebounds.
Morkem’s family will have a public reception from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Three Chimneys Farm Clubhouse in Cumming, the university said.
In lieu of flowers, his family asked that donations be made online to the Ross Morkem Scholarship Fund.
