Jayhawks keeping tabs on Morin

Overland Park (KS) St. Thomas Aquinas junior Dan Morin is one of the most impressive line prospects in Kansas City from the Class of 2013.

Saturday, he was part of a large group of prospects - many from the region - to attend a spring practice at the University of Kansas, giving him an inside look at how things will be run on Mount Oread now that Charlie Weis is at the helm.

"I really liked it," Dan Morin said. "I could tell that they're going to turn it around and make the program a lot better. I like how (assistant coach Tim) Grunhard was coaching the linemen when they split up."

After practice ended Morin attended a position meeting with Grunhard and had the chance to speak with him briefly before leaving campus.

"He said that they think I'm really athletic and that they want to see me at camp this summer before they offer me," he explained. "They just want to see me in person. They say they like what I'm doing in my film."

Were the Jayhawks to offer, Morin admitted it would make a serious impression.

"I really like it," he said. "I'd highly consider it. It would probably be one of my favorite schools."

With no other spring visits currently scheduled, the 6-foot-3, 280-pound offensive and defensive guard is planning to camp with a number of programs this summer, including Kansas, Kansas State, Duke, Yale and Michigan.

He was invited to the Kansas spring game later this month, but due to a conflict with a scheduled combine event may not be able to attend.

"I just need to find out what time that is and which days," he said. "If I can make it to it, I'll for sure go."
