Anthony Morelli highlight reel

It seems that the Penn Hills quarterback is very interested in the opportunity to come in and play early at the University of Tennessee. Indications this week seem to be that UT has moved into Morelli's top 5 favorites after an in-home visit from a few Vol coaches. Here is a video clip and other facts about the talented high school gridder.

Pittsburgh (Pa.) Penn Hills quarterback Anthony Morelli is at least one of the top five quarterbacks in America and has been offered by just about every school in the country that has come to see him minus one. Here's the latest on Morelli and a look ahead to what could be a very important unofficial trip this weekend.
Morelli, 6-4, 208 pounds has the strongest throwing arm of any quarterback we've seen this year. Mechanically he has it all including a nice drop, nice ball placement and a quick release. He attended the EA SPORTS Elite 11 a year ago as a ball boy and was one of the top five signal callers of the camp.

On the recruiting front, Morelli now has 39 scholarship offers and the only school in his top 10 that has yet to offer is Notre Dame.

"They came to the school and said they loved me but just aren't ready to offer a quarterback yet," Morelli said. "There's four quarterbacks including me they're looking hard and will offer one of us at the end of the month. Right now, I still like UCLA, Ohio State, Florida State, Notre Dame and Michigan as my top five and I'm also looking at Pittsburgh, Georgia, Iowa, Miami and Tennessee.

"Things have been so crazy lately that my dad and I decided to get out of the house a few times to avoid all the phone calls. I'm still looking to commit early if I can and if I find the right school for me."

Here is a highlight reel* of Morelli just to get you teased.
