Morris puts a licking on Everett

Jason Morris is a 5-11, 190-pound quarterback from Mill Creek (Wash.) Jackson and Morris used his athleticism to guide the Timberwolves to a victory over Everett last Friday. Colleges from the West and Midwest are taking notice of Jason and his ability to make plays.

He had 140 rush yards, 100 passing yards and three touchdowns to beat the Seagulls. "We got off to a good start, got going in the right direction," Morris told

Most schools are still looking for game film before they take the plunge. "Nebraska told me that they were going to be calling me this week and that they might offer me, so I'm waiting for that call," Jason said. That would be a tough offer to lay off of, but Morris insists he's not ready to take that next step just yet. Regardless, he was suitably impressed when he unofficially visited Lincoln a few weeks back.

"I like them a lot, but when I went on my visit it hit home just how far away it is," he said. But it was an incredible experience there. Everything there is red. You really stick out if you wear white." Went when the Cornhuskers took on Arizona State.

One school has stepped up with an official offer - the Idaho Vandals. "Idaho offered me a scholarship tonight," Morris said. Nebraska, Oregon, Washington State, Washington, Idaho, Idaho State and Oregon State are all schools that have called Jason since September 1st.

Morris will be heading down to Eugene to check out the Portland State - Oregon game. "I'm going to see a friend of mine, Bobby Brush," he said. "I played with him in the 10th grade." Brush plays fullback for the Vikings.

The Cornhuskers and Ducks stand out right now. "Both schools have really kept in touch well," Morris said. Jason hasn't been set up with the Clearinghouse yet, but once he takes the SAT on October 12th and the ACT later in the month he'll be able to take official visits. "I definitely think I'll want to visit Nebraska and Oregon and Washington State. While I'm at Wazzu I'll try to get over to Idaho for an unofficial visit so I don't have to use one on them."

Nebraska is recruiting Morris as a QB, Oregon as a defensive back.
