Bulldogs land first commitment

Football camp is under way at Louisiana Tech and it is already paying dividends for Head Coach Derek Dooley and his staff.

D.J. Morrow, a multi-talented athlete from Westwood High School in Palestine, TX gave his verbal commitment to Coach Dooley on Wednesday.

Morrow, who played tailback for Head Coach Kevin Anderson last season, was names Offensive MVP for District 19-3A after carrying the ball 210 times for 1655 yards and 24 touchdowns.

"D.J. committed to Louisiana Tech," Coach Anderson confirmed. "He is a tougher runner than Chris Whaley just not as big."

Coach Anderson said Morrow could see time at quarterback in 2008. "We lost our quarterback, so D.J. could play a little there for us," he said. "...but he is still going to run the ball."

Morrow also played linebacker for Coach Anderson in 2007. "He is as good on defense as he is on offense," said Anderson. "We will probably play him at safety this year and keep him out of the middle a little more."

According to Coach Anderson, Morrow was receiving a lot of interst from Missouri, Colorado State, and Nebraska. The honarable mention All-State selection is the first commitment for Coach Dooley's 2009 recruiting class.
