Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C has a reputation for producing division one recruits. One of the latest heading in that direction is defensive back Sam Morrison.

Morrison has received two new offers since the start of the spring evaluation period. Georgia Tech and Army are the latest to offer Morrison. The two offers brings Morrision's offer total to six.

Georgia Tech Coach Joe Speed was at Gonzaga to evaluate Morrision and several of his teammates. On the visit, Morrision was offered by Tech. "I tell you I felt really great and truly blessed to get the offer."

Coach Speed was impressed with what he saw from Morrison's film. He saw that Morrison was always around the ball. The way Morrison handled his assignments on the field was also something that caught the eye of Coach Speed.

While he was at Gonzaga, Coach Speed also left an invitation for Morrison to visit Georgia Tech. "I hope that my mom and I can come down to Atlanta and see firsthand how Coach Speed described the campus and the school."

The offer from Georgia Tech puts them in the picture with Morrison. "They play in the ACC, they play at a high level, and they are always at the top of the conference." Morrison also likes that Tech has players from his area on the current squad.

Morrison hopes to make his decision by the end of the summer. Morrison is looking for a school with a good football team and strong academics. "I want the best of both." Morrison is also looking for a school where he feels comfortable and has the blessing of his family too.

Whoever gets Morrison will be getting a player that has speed and likes to be physical. Look for Morrison to also play some receiver, in his senior season, in addition to playing corner.
