Morin recaps KU camp

Overland Park (KS) St. Thomas Aquinas senior Dan Morin is one of the top line prospects in the state of Kansas. This weekend, he made the short trip to Lawrence, Kan. for O-Line/D-Line Camp with the Jayhawks, and spent a few minutes with Phog.net discussing how things went.

Unlike some of the other camps Dan Morin had attended, this weekend's camp with the Jayhawks focused less on combine style testing and more on technique work.

It was a change of pace the 6-foot-2, 280-pounds lineman enjoyed.

"It was really good," Morin said. "We didn't do any testing, like the 40 (yard dash) or anything like the other campus, but spent the whole time working on techniques. Just a bunch of run-blocking and stance work. Then after a break it was pass blocking and one-on-ones."

Morin only got a pair of reps in during the one-on-one session and he emerged victorious from them both.

The Jayhawks and lead recruiter Tim Grunhard have been keeping tabs on the versatile lineman, and during the camp Morin got a few minutes to chat with the first-year Kansas defensive line coach.

"He just told me I was doing really good," Morin said. "And asked me how my high schoolt eam was looking for next year.

Morin said he feels the Jayhawks will continue to evaluate him. For now, he's shifting his focus to a pair of visits on the horizon.

An excellent student - he maintains a 3.8 grade point average and recently obtained a 32 on the ACT - he'll take trips this coming weekend to both Harvard and Yale for camps.

Morin is understandably excited.

"It's going to be really cool," he said. "I'm touring Yale, the campus, so that's going to be great."
