Male back nearing offers

Male running back Ronjae Morris is on his way to the next level a little over a year from now. But until that time Morris will keep working to get better.

Male running back Ronjae Morris is on his way to the next level a little over a year from now. But until that time Morris will keep working to get better.

As a running back, Ronjae Morris had a great season in helping Male to a 11-3 record last season. In 13 games Morris had 1172 yards and 11 touchdowns, averaging nearly 10 yards per carry. He wants to better that performance as a senior.

"I feel like my last season was okay," he said. "There's room for improvement and for me to adjust a lot of parts to my game," he continued. "I think this past season, from my sophomore year, I got stronger and faster and my field vision was more adequate," he said.

The 5-foot-10, 155-pound running back will have to continue to gain strength to remain at that spot on the next level and he's working to put on those pounds.

"I'm just staying in the weight room and lifting. And I'm going to track practice," said Morris.

Ronjae's track schedule has kept him away from some Junior Day events at many schools, but he's going to take in a few schools this spring.

"I've been missing out on a lot of Junior Days and visits because of track meets, but I have a lot coming up in April," he said.

Some of the schools who Morris is hearing from and could get visits from include: Kentucky, UCLA, Tennessee, LSU, Penn State, Indiana, Illinois, West Virginia, Stanford, Cincinnati, Western Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky and Louisville.

So have any of those schools stepped up to make an offer?

"Offers are in the making as we speak," said Morris. "I just have to get my grades up."

Morris is one to watch in Kentucky over the next year.
