40 time: 4.5
Name: Dion Morton
40 time: 4.5
The hottest twin duo in the nation this year without a doubt is the Mortons from Riverside, California's North John W. High School. As seniors, they both tore it up and this is not one of those situations where one of the twins is good and the other isn't. They are equally as good and are being recruited as such.
It looks like it is going to be an in-state battle between two rivals in the Rams and Buffs.
"Colorado State and Colorado are the two schools we are going to decide between," said Damon. "Everyone else has been taken out of consideration. We already visited Fort Collins and had a great time and now we will be in Boulder this weekend and will decide after that."
As a senior, Damon had 64 catches for 1,563 yards and 19 touchdowns. On defense he had six interceptions. Dion was the man tossing most of those passes on offense. Dion had 99 completions for 2,263 yards and 32 touchdowns, with only seven interceptions. On defense he had seven interceptions. Both players were named first team all-state, and first team all-CIF Southern Section. Dion was also named the Riverside County Player of the Year.
As for why they both like the Colorado schools, the explanation is simple.
"We both know that a lot of people from here go out there to play and go out there for school in general so it would be real comfortable at either school. Both of them have also been real strong the whole time in recruiting us by calling us every week."
Coach Cabral called the Morton just a few days ago.
"He called us to tell us Happy New Year's and that he was still thinking about us since it had been a couple of weeks since we spoke."
As for what they like about CU.......
"Boulder seems like a very cool city. We both think we would like it there."
Damon carries a 3.4 core GPA and scored a 900 on his SAT. He would like to major in Engineering. Dion carries a 3.2 GPA and scored an 860 on his SAT. He is undecided on a major.
Buff Country will catch up with both of them next Sunday night after their visit.
