Brent Morris Generating MAC Interest

Warren De La Salle wide receiver Brent Morris is a prospect on the rise. MichiganVarsity caught up with Morris, as he breaks down his junior season, schools showing interest, possible upcoming visits and more.

Warren De La Salle junior wide receiver Brent Morris is a prospect on the rise in the 2014 class. At 6-foot-3, 180-pounds, Morris led the Pilots with 24 receptions for a 271 yards and a touchdown this past season.

While De La Salle (5-4) fell short of their team goal of making the playoffs, Morris says individually his game has "improved" throughout his junior campaign.

"I feel like I did pretty well this year," Morris said. "It's one of the best years that I've had. I really improved from last year a lot. I got a lot bigger and a lot faster. I did a lot better in route running, getting open, and making plays."

Currently, Morris has no offers, but has received interest from the Miami (OH),as one of the RedHawks coaches made an in school visit recently.

"He came into the school and talked to me," Morris said. "He just wanted to know all my information and stuff. He said they were interested in me and that they want me to come down to a game to watch. So I am going to do that for sure.

"I am pretty much going to be checking out everything. I am pretty new to this, so I really don't know what else to look for. I am going to look for the academics and make sure I am comfortable with the place. And make sure I like the coaches."

Other notable schools showing interest in Morris are Toledo, Ball State, and Eastern Michigan. With his older brother Shane Morris attending Michigan next season, he said with Eagles have an extra benefit of being close to Ann Arbor.

"I mean for sure I would be interested. It's college football. Anywhere I would be pretty much interested in. (Eastern Michigan) being close helps out a lot. I t makes it a lot easier," he said.

Morris said he doesn't know when he would like to make a college decision, because right now there is no offers on the table. However, he said his relationship with the coaching staff will go far into his decision.

"I really want to make sure I like the coaches a lot," he said. "I get close to the coaches. I want to make sure it's somewhere the atmosphere and everything is something that I love. Somewhere I love being around all the time. The academics also is a big part of it."

While Morris currently plays wide receiver, he says he isn't opposed to playing other positions in college.

"I mean it depends on how much I grow. I am going to be working out a lot, trying to get bigger. Whatever happens and whatever the coaches want I'm open to whatever they want me to do."
