Graham (Wash.) Kapowsin 2019 four-star quarterback Dylan Morris is one of the top prospects in the Northwest in the 2019 class, an early member of the Scout 2019 Watch List. Morris started as a freshman for the Eagles, helping them to the WIAA 4A state semifinals and an unbeaten regular season. This offseason, Morris has shown why he'll be one of the top recruits at the position in his class. He talked with Scout at the Rise Workouts last weekend about the schools who watched him throw, playing with five-star tackle Foster Sarell and more.

That was awesome, getting all that coaching, absorbing all that, it was awesome. Especially with Coach Smith, the college coaching and the NFL guys, it was awesome.

It definitely helps. Colleges are always talking to him, especially in games, and if I perform good, it’s great getting on those colleges radar.

Focusing more on my leadership aspect of the game. Last year, I was leading by example because I was the underclassmen and youngest on the team. This year, I need to be more vocal.
