Trip Report - Danny Morovick

Dawgman.com knew of one visitor to Washington this weekend that we hadn't been able to reach up to his visit. Long snappers as scholarshipped players is something of a new phenomenon, but all the more vital when wins and losses can be pegged to poor snaps resulting in blocked punts or kicks. The Huskies may have found their guy in Danny Morovick.

Morovick, originally from Mission Viejo, Calif., is now at Saddleback (Calif.) College, but he hasn't been playing football. Instead, he wanted to wait things out and hopefully sign with a school mid-year to preserve four years of eligibility. Washington was the first school that came calling.

"I liked the surrounding, facilities and everything," the 6-foot-2, 235-pound Morovick said of his visit, one that was hosted by punter Ryan Perkins.

Washington was the first to offer Danny specifically for his long-snapping prowess. "They are the first to offer me, but I've been asked to walk on by a bunch of different places," he said.

Morovick, who doesn't have any other schools right now on his visit schedule, is looking to sign mid-year and be on the campus of his choice with four-and-a-half years to play four. And even though the Huskies would be the main school vying for his services at this point, he did not pull the trigger on a commitment.

"I haven't decided yet," said Morovick. "I'm going to decide in a week."

So unless another school comes into the picture late, it looks like Washington has found a long snapper they can depend on for the next four years. Chris Sailer, the former UCLA kicker who runs a national kicking and long snapping camp, has Morovick as one of the top-ten available long snappers in the country.

"Very consistent. Nice quick spiral. Can be great!" were Sailer's comments.
