Glenville S Morris has eyes on Ball State

With several offers in hand, Aaron Morris has plenty of options. chats with Morris about who is recruiting him and what it is like to play for Glenville.

Glenville is a noted powerhouse in Cleveland that produces a ton of FCS football talent each year. This year is no different. The Tarblooders boast players like Latwan Anderson, Christian Bryant, Jayrone Elliot and James Gordon – all of whom have major college offers. Add one more name to the list – Aaron Morris. Morris, who is a 6-0 190 hard hitting and ball hawking S, has gotten plenty of interest already from school across the Midwest and on the East Coast.

"Currently, I am being recruited by Toledo, Maryland, Syracuse, Ball State, Ohio, Northern Illinois, Illinois and Indiana," Morris said. "I have some offers from most of the schools."

Among his list of suitors is Ball State, a school that has recently gotten a bit of a football pipeline going from Glenville to Muncie.

"I am very interested in Ball State," Morris said. "I love the coaching staff and the whole environment."

Ball State, which Morris visited during the summer camp Ted Ginn Bus Tour, has offered both Morris as well as his teammate James Gordon (an OLB), that coupled with former teammates Torieal Gibson, Travis Freeman, Theon Dixon, Jason Pinkston and Xavier Hines (Greyshirt for 2010) all already at Ball State, gives Morris a little more incentive to think extra hard about the Cardinals.

"I have visited Ball State," Morris said. "I went there for a camp with my team. It was great. They showed me a lot of love. I've talked with Travis Freeman and also Theon Dixon about the university and they've told me nothing but good things. It would be nice to go somewhere where you have guys you have already played with in high school there already. Also, me and James (Gordon) are really close, and we always talk about going to college together. But we have to do what's best for us and are families. So I guess we will see what happens."

Playing for such a well respected program surrounded by the number of great athletes that Glenville has is a great experience for Morris.

"It's great because we have some of the top players in the country on both sides of the ball, and it does nothing but make me better by competing with my teammates every day in practice," Morris said. "Then come game time I really know what to expect already because I've seen everything."

Morris and his teammates have high hopes for the 2009 season, with the amount of talent the Tarblooders have should mean great things for the Ted Ginn coached squad. Morris, who also doubles as a WR, should factor in a big way towards that success.

"My goals for myself are to just be the outstanding player I know I can be, and lead this team to a state championship," Aaron said. "Goals for the team are to work hard every day and leave everything on the field."

As for his college choice, Morris said he has not narrowed his list down yet, but plans to after the season. He also is very specific about what he is looking for in his destination school.

"Well, first I'm looking for a good learning environment," Morris said. "That I can focus on school also, and also just a family built team."
