Morris has plenty of interest

Cinco Ranch has produced many high-quality athletes over the years. In 2008, the Cougars are still loaded. DB Will Morris had a strong 2006 season and has been going hard this summer. TPI caught up with Morris to discuss his summer plans and where he stands in recruiting.

Cinco Ranch defensive back Will Morris is grinding out this summer at football camps across the country. After a successful junior season, the 6-2, 182-pound athlete is starting to receive interest from some heavy-hitting schools.

"I have seen interest from SMU, Houston, and Southern Miss," Morris said. "I plan to go to camps at all of these places along with TCU, UTEP, and Kansas. I would also like to go to Oklahoma and North Texas."

Right now, Morris is high on SMU and UH because both schools have shown the most interest. This is primarily because Morris' resume shows he has the full package as a defensive back.

"UH is probably the main school I am interested in," Morris said. "SMU called and the coach said they plan to sign two safeties, so I plan to go to their camp because they want to see my footwork."

He finished last year with 70 tackles, four interceptions, and two blocked field goals. According to Morris, this, long with other attributes is what college coaches see in him.

"I think they like my size, quickness, and smarts for the game," Morris said. "Also, I am not afraid to hit. I don't mind hitting receivers who come across the middle. I can also play both sides of the ball."

Which will probably happen. Morris and the Cinco Ranch 7-on-7 team have been hard at work this summer already qualified for the state tournament in College Station in July. 

Morris has been working on both sides of the ball this summer and Coach Don Clayton will more than likely use him in both capacities.
