Morris Visit Brings Offer

Class of 2013 quarterback Shane Morris headed to East Lansing and the Michigan State campus today not holding an offer from the Spartans. That all changed before he headed back home.

Quarterback in the next couple of classes could be an important one for Mark Dantonio and the Michigan State Spartans.

With Kirk Cousins heading into his final season, Dantonio and his staff wasted little time in making an impression on Shane Morris of Warren (MI) De La Salle.

"I am on my way home from Michigan State right now," Morris said by phone. "Michigan State offered me today. Coach Dantonio told me they would love to have me at their school and they feel I would be a great fit there. He also said they feel I could come in and play early there."

Visiting practice gave Morris the chance to watch the Spartans in action.

"Coach Dantonio brought me out to the middle of the field during practice and we watched the quarterbacks do their drills. I was impressed with how quickly everything moves and the tempo of practice."

Morris, who stands 6-foot-3, 182-pounds, knows he needs to do some work. However, he also feels he has several strengths to his overall game.

"I feel my strengths are my arm strength and accuracy. I also feel I have the ability to make big plays. I do need to get stronger in the weight room and put on some weight."

Morris already holds offers from Michigan, Toledo, Bowling Green, and Cincinnati to go with his Spartans offer. Growing up a fan of Michigan does not mean the Spartans rival has an advantage.

"I grew up a fan of Michigan, however, that will not play into my decision as to where I will go to college."

Spartan Digest will be keeping an eye on Morris as he has time before having to make in decision. With a plan to issue his pledge prior to his senior season, we are sure Mark Dantonio and his staff will be ready to battle hard for the instate signal caller.
