As one of the most versatile and explosive players in the state of South Carolina in the 2016 class Hilton Head CB/WR Jestin Morrow Morrow gave an early verbal commitment to Marshall Thundering Herd. Despite that commitment after a strong start to his senior season other schools remain highly interested in him. We caught up with him to talk about his senior season, a recent trip to Marshall, and more.
"We're 4-0 and I average 6 solo tackles per game and have 8 assists. I've had a pick 6 for 78 yards and 2 kick returns for touchdowns, one for 68 yards and the other for 87 yards. I've got 4 receiving touchdowns on the year and averaging 5 catches per game. I'm also averaging 21 yards on punt returns."
We asked the 2016 Marshall commitment if other schools continue to recruit him despite his verbal pledge to the Thundering Herd?
"I'm hearing from Purdue Boilermakers, Toledo Rockets, Buffalo, Missouri Tigers, Charlotte, Wake Forest Demon Deacons, Tennessee Volunteers, UCLA Bruins, North Carolina Tar Heels, South Carolina Gamecocks, and Iowa State Cyclones."
Currently along with the offer and commitment to Marshall Morrow also holds offers from "Purdue, Toledo, Charlotte, Buffalo, Charleston Southern, and Coastal Carolina" he says.
When asked about his current status as a pledge to Marshall Morrow had this to say, "Out of the schools that have offered me I think Marshall is the best place for me and that's why I chose them but if other schools offer I would definitely take a deep look into them just in case they seem like a better fit."
Morrow talked about his most recent visit to Marshall with us and where the coaches foresee him with Thundering Herd program.
"It was fun. I've never ate so much in my life (laughs) but my favorite part was just the football game and going in the locker room afterwards. I loved it!"
"Just at cornerback. I talked to the players and they were telling me the defensive backs coaches don't really like them playing special teams but I'd love to do some kick return but we'll see when I get up there though. College they like to switch your position and my recruiting coordinator is the wide receiver coach."
The 2016 prospect shared a few goals he's set for himself during his senior season also.
"I want to break the interception record which is 7, my current defensive backs coach holds the record actually. I just want to leave a legacy here, nothing out of the ordinary."
