Top DB In South Florida?
Demetrius Morley of Miami (Fla.) Killian will give All-American Kenny Phillips a run for his money as the top defensive back in Dade County. The 6-0 and 180 pound standout has the athletic-ability and speed to play corner or safety at the next level.
Morley has some big offers, including Florida State and Miami. It appears he has his eyes on the local Hurricanes in a huge way.
"Miami is my leader," he said. "It's the hometown team and I'm a big Hurricane fan. My parents are huge Hurricane fans also. LSU is up there with Miami also. After them I like Florida State, Oklahoma and Florida."
Another factor helping the Canes is the fact that Morley is the cousin of incoming Miami freshman Bobby Washington. He's also friends with Florida State incoming freshman J.R. Bryant.
"I'm also real tight with Dorian Monroe of Coral Reef," he said. "We met last year."
Recently Morley made himself into a household name by shutting down some the top wide receivers in the Miami football camp.
"I did real well," he said. "I shut down Jessie Hester and two other guys. I had two interceptions and I broke up a lot of passes."
The South Florida star would like to camp at two others schools this summer but he's not quite sure who it will be with yet.
Family is going to be his biggest factor in terms of choosing where he plans on spending the next four to five years of his life.
"The decision is going to be between me and my family," he said. "They said they wouldn't mind me playing out of town so I can experience something new."
Morley registered over 50 tackles this past season as well as nine interceptions.
