Recruit Tracker: Shane Morris

August 24, 2012: Morris's Warren (MI) De La Salle team beat Ann Arbor (MI) Pioneer by a score of 35-7.  Morris was 14/26 passing for 177 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception.

September 1, 2012: De La Salle lost to Cleveland (OH) St. Ignatius by a score of 49-13.  Morris was 9/22 passing for 104 yards, 0 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions.  His team is now 1-1.


  1. What are your thoughts Magnus? My own: his line gives him absolutely no time at all which really seems to be affecting his ability to play and his stats. They have to roll the pocket a lot to give him time and that really seems to affect his ability to read the defense and just survey from the pocket. I think his footwork needs some work just with drops and such, and that if people are looking for him to start as a freshman then we're in trouble. He needs a year or two of work.

  2. I never know what to make of HS highlights/stat lines, because there are never that many college-bound players on the field besides the recruit in question. Looking at that video, it seems like DLS has a pretty average offensive line and WR corps.

    BTW, you probably didn't have to note that Ann Arbor is in the state of Michigan ;).

  3. He didn't look to have a whole lot of time to throw again Pioneer, can't even imagine the pressure against a team like Ignatius.

  4. St Ignatius is the high school equivalent of Alabama with 28 coaches on the varsity and freshman squads including Elvis Grbac the QB coach. They don't oversign like Saban the Snake.

  5. I grew up in Cleveland and I know some Michigan fans that went to the game. St. Ignatius is a football factory, and my friend said as soon as Shane got the snap he was running for his life. He didn't have a good game, but he didn't get any help either.

  6. Football factory? Ignatius annually has the most National Merit Semi-finalists in the state.

    1. No, Ignatius is one of the most prestigious schools in the state. I was simply implying that they have an incredible football program.
