The Terps' staff has handed out a bevy of cornerback offers this spring, and one of their most recent ones went out to Greater Atlanta Christian (Norcross, Ga.) three-star Trey Morrison. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound three-star has been gaining steam this spring and UMD became his latest Big Ten look May 12.
"I'm very excited about the offer, but the way it happened was kind of strange. Coach [Walt] Bell just, like, DM'd me out of the blue," laughed Morrison, who previously had looks from WVU, Louisville, BC, Minnesota, UVA, UNC, Pitt, Rutgers and Wake. "That was the first time he'd ever contacted me. He just told me I had the offer, I said 'Thank you,' and that was it (laughs). But then the DB coach, Coach [Aazaar Abdul-Rahim], he DM'd me [May 14] and we're going to be talking."
Morrison said he didn't know much about Maryland yet beyond the basics. He's looking forward to learning more from Abdul-Rahim, though, and possibly visiting this summer.
"It's one of my bigger offers and I've heard good things," Morrison said. "I'd like to check Maryland out at some point."
Morrison said he's in the closest contact with coaches from UNC, WVU, UVA, Minnesota and Notre Dame (no offer yet). He said the offers from UNC, WVU and UVA have his attention, in addition to Louisville and Pitt. Morrison is also seeking a look from Notre Dame, which would instantly rise up his personal leaderboard.
Morrison has been to West Virginia, Virginia, Wake, Duke, Georgia, UCF and UNC.
"And this summer I'm trying to visit my top schools. I don't have a definite leaderboard yet, but I want to get back to UNC and West Virginia," Morrison said. "Then I want to see Maryland, UVA, Louisville and Pitt."
Morrison doesn't have a timetable for making his college decision, but he does want to take official visits. He said more than likely he'd be able to take those officials during the season and then commit towards the end or after his senior year.
"I want to find a place where I have a good relationship with the coaches, where I can play early, and I want to get a good education," Morrison said.
