Morin can't wait to be a Wildcat

Riverside (Calif.) Community College athlete Matt Morin is signing with Arizona on Wednesday. Read on to see what he says about his emotions as he does, his future role, and more.

Riverside (Calif.) Community College tight end Matt Morin can’t point to just one reason why he decided to become an Arizona Wildcat.

“There were a lot of factors as to why I chose Arizona,” Morin said. “I love the coaches and the atmosphere. I also have some family that was pushing me in that direction.

"I knew after I committed I made the right decision, and the way they played on the field this year was really impressive. It’s something I want to be part of and I think I have a chance.”

Like the other players that are signing this week, Morin will be able to participate in spring ball.

“I wanted to get everything out of the way so I can get in there early," he said. "I didn’t want to get in during the summer with most the other recruits if I could avoid it.

"I’m so close to getting in now that it really has started to dawn on me. I’m not sure what I will feel when I sign that letter.”

Morin figures Wednesday will be the calm before the storm.

“When I get to Arizona things are going to change," he said. "Junior college and high school ball is one thing; Division I football is a totally different matter.”

In addition, Morin believes his position flexibility will also give him an advantage.

“I’m more physically mature than a lot of the incoming recruits and I’ve played multiple positions in the past," he said. "Honestly, I just want to play though.

"I will do what the coaches ask because it’s been proven they know what they are doing. I can’t wait to become a Wildcat.”
