ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- If Shane Morris starts the season as Michigan’s starting quarterback, he’s not keeping it a secret on who he will be looking to connect with out on the field.

In fact, when asked whom he was putting in extra work with this off-season at Michigan media day on Thursday, the first receivers he referred to were fifth-year seniors Amara Darboh and Jehu Chesson.

“Darboh and I are very close we have a good connection,” Morris said. “I feel comfortable throwing him the ball in any situation. Same with Jehu (Chesson), I’m very confident in their abilities.”

Darboh finished with 36 catches for 473 yards and two touchdowns in 2014. Chesson countered with 14 receptions for 154 yards.

“Darboh is my roommate for camp,” Morris said. “I am very excited to be able to work with him this year and see what we can do. Jehu is a great guy; he is going to be our speed guy, fastest guy on the team. It’s going to be a good year, I got a lot of receivers, I can do some different things. I’m excited about it.”

Successful Season

When posed the question if his season will be a success if what happens? Morris replied with a smile: “If we win our last game. No matter what that will be, if we win our last game it will be a success.”

As of right now Michigan’s last game is against No. 1 Ohio State on Nov. 28.
