Knowledgeable WR from Texas holds Nebraska offer

The search continues for Nebraska and wide receivers. It seems that Nebraska is doig anything and everything to get a wide receiver from Texas.

Nebraska had offered Keller (Texas) Fossil Ridge wide receiver Howard Morrow. The 6-foot-0 and 195 pound Morrow has a Nebraska offer and 12 others.

"I'm up the 13 offers. Some of them are Maryland, Wisconsin, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, LSU, Arizona, Oklahoma and Nebraska. I don't want to leave anyone out, but that is who I remember right now," Morrow said.

Morrow's summer is rapidly winding down as football practice approaches for him on the 9th. "I've been working on getting faster and gaining some weight this summer."

While Morrow's stats show a productive season on the field he claims his strength is something that may not be directly reflected in his stats. Last season he has 61 receptions for 1026 yards and 13 touchdowns. "My strength is my knowledge of the game."

Put that knowledge about where to make your cuts, where the holes will be in a defense and his 4.5 speed and you have a weapon at the wide receiver position. The 4-wide set that his high school runs allowed him to shine and bring home first team all-district and second team all-state honors last season.

When it comes to picking out a college it is pretty simple for Morrow who is looking at three big things. "First I am looking if they have a good business school for my major. Then I am looking at when I can play. I am also looking at how well I get along with the coaches."

This summer Morrow took a trip over to LSU and just returned two days ago. "I liked it a lot. It was real nice. I like Coach Williams the wide receiver coach. He came from the Detroit Lions. Their academic center was really nice. I didn't see everything. We were only there for four hours."

As of right now Morrow hasn't planned or chose any schools to see on his official visits. One school that could really utilize his talents on the field is Nebraska.

"I heard that Nebraska is going to the West Coast Offense. I really don't know too much about them. Some of the mail I have been getting from them has been hand-written. I'm interested in talking an official visit there possibly."

Expect Morrow to take his officials after the season. Morrow also participates in basketball and track and admits that he would like to look into possibly running track in college.
