ASU Prospect DB Willis Morrison

As you may recall, the 5'11' 175 lbs strong safety played at Big Spring high school, in Big Spring, TX up until last year. He finished his junior season with 117 tackles and 8 interceptions. He was named first team defensive back on the All West Texas team, and was one of only two juniors to be, and was also voted to the all district team as a defensive back, as well as a punter and a wide receiver.

This year he's attending Sinagua high school in Flagstaff, but his name is still on the radar screen of many schools. He still has ASU in his top three, along with Arizona and Stanford. Morrison wanted to attend Camp T, but that interfered with his high school team's two-a-days. If he's not playing on the night of the San Diego State game he will attend the game as an official guest of the team.

Other schools in the mix are Air Force, and Colorado State who have offered scholarships. Willis thinks that Arizona will also offer as early as Sept. 1st, but he's not counting on it. Regardless of all the interest that schools are showing in him, he just wants to meet the ASU guys and the coaching staff. Morrison is quite impressed with Coach Helfrich, who has been communicating via email. To say that the defensive back is the jack-of-all-trades would be an understatement. His high school has decided to play him not only at DB, but also as tailback, WR, the starting punter, and to his surprise the place kicker and field goal kicker as well.

Morrison is very humbled that he made PrepStar Magazine's Pre-Season picks. He actually heard from Stanford right after that issue went out. Morrison plans on maintaining his 4.0 GPA. He already scored 1100 on his SAT. He is taking college calculus and college English this year. He finished speed camp at NAU and increased his vertical jump by 6" to 37+ this summer. He is also in making great strides in the weight room. Along with his 4.45 speed in the 40, he's the complete package athletically speaking.

I will follow up with him after he has (hopefully) attended the San Diego State game.
