College Football Recruiting: Michigan Commit Shane Morris Continues to Grind

Shane Morris committed to the University of Michigan over a year ago and he’s been on the grind ever since.

He’s been competing in recruiting camps, 7-on-7 competitions and trying to be the best quarterback in his class.

Morris has been labeled the second best pro-style quarterback in the 2013 class by Rivals and he’s determined to become number one on that list when all is said and done.

It would have been easy for Morris to take it easy after his commitment to Michigan. Instead, he’s competing non-stop across the country against some of the best signal callers in the country. At the beginning of July, Morris shared the field with some of the top quarterbacks in the country at Nike’s The Opening in Beaverton, Ore.

The No. 22 overall prospect in the 2013 class, Morris knew he needed a strong showing at The Opening to help move himself up that list. On his own evaluation, Morris will tell you he did just that.

This week Morris heads to California for the Elite 11 event that joins together 25 of the top QB’s across the land. Former NFL great Trent Dilfer is the camps director and will be coaching all the participants during the event.

Right after the Elite 11 Morris will fly to Orlando to compete in the Gridiron Kings 7-on-7 tournament. These events help quarterbacks make quick and efficient decisions with the football, exactly what Morris’s soon to be coach at Michigan, Brady Hoke, will want.

You have to like the commitment and hard work Morris is putting in to become a better player. It’s a nice sign for Michigan fans and even better sign for coach Hoke and the rest of his staff.

Michigan continues to impress with its recruiting class.
