Alec Morris switches his commitment

Alec Morris has switched his commitment from Wake Forest to the University of Alabama. The quarterback out of Texas talked about his decision....


The University of Alabama picked up a commitment from Alec Morris. He had originally committed to Wake Forest and also had an offer from North Texas.

"I've been talking to Alabama since May or so when they came and watched my spring game," the 6-foot-4, 235 pound athlete said. "Last Friday I called them, and they offered me. I've just been thinking about them for a little while, and I made the decision today."

Morris was projected to be an instrumental part of Wake Forest's developing class. He explained the reasoning behind his choice.

"I didn't go to any camps at Wake Forest, but I could definitely tell that the coaching staff at Alabama was a little more hardcore intensity-wise," Morris said. "Don't get me wrong, I have nothing but respect for the coaches up there; I loved it up there.

"But I'm going to college to play football, and I want to do it at the best place possible- and that's Alabama.

"When I committed to Wake Forest I really committed to go to school there. There are a bunch of kids who would kill to be in that position and be able to make that choice. But Alabama offered me, and I knew I had to re-evaluate the decision, and make the choice that's best for me."

The signal caller from the Lone Star State passed for 2,500 yards and 22 touchdowns in his first year as a starter for Allen High School. He helped guide them to a 10-2 season and made it to the 2nd round of the 5A playoffs.

This year most pre-season polls have Allen ranked No. 1 in Texas 5A and many publications have them nationally ranked.
