El Camino's Morrow wants the chance to play

An intriguing corner prospect this fall should be El Camino CB Darrius Morrow (6-0, 180). The talented DB was a late-qualifier after only playing one year of high school football and he wanted to see if he could play BCS ball so he headed to west to play in one of the toughest JC conferences in the country. Read on to find out more about this gifted prospect...

Morrow prepped at Germantown High School in Memphis, Tennessee, but wasn't heavily recruited after he completed his senior season.

"I only played one year of high school ball," Morrow told JCFootball.com. "I didn't know about the Clearinghouse or anything like that, so I didn't find out until later what I needed to do to qualify and I did it, but it was so late that I didn't get to play that first year.

"All I could do is lift and run because I got cleared after they had played their first game."

After fall quarter finished, Morrow decided to begin looking around.

"I think I can play at a higher level," Morrow said. "I knew El Camino plays some of the best JC programs in the country and they are always great too, so I decided to come out and play and see what I can do at a higher level."

On the recruiting front Morrow has already been hearing from several schools including Oregon, Oregon State, Oklahoma State, Hawaii and USC.

"SC just started recruiting me pretty recently and the other schools have all been after me for a while," Morrow said. "I don't have any offers yet and I know a lot of schools will come in for spring ball so I know I have to do well."

Morrow has 4.41 speed and he's been working hard in the weight room and in the classroom as well.

Since he was a full-qualifier out of high school, Morrow can leave at any time, but he expects to sign in December and he'll have four years to play three wherever he ends up.
