COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ranked as the nation’s No. 2 pro-style passer and No. 18 prospect overall according to 247Sports, Michigan commit Shane Morris attended the Elite 11 Dallas Regional back in late-March and didn’t throw the football as well as he wanted.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Morris left the Lone Star State without MVP honors, and without an automatic ticket to the Elite 11 National Event to be held in California during the summer.
Morris also left with a chip on his shoulder.
Over a month later, the future Wolverine put in a lot of work to sharpen his skills, and on Friday, Morris took home MVP honors at a more competitive Elite 11 Regional held at Ohio Dominican University. You’ll be able to find him out West this summer after he beat out the likes of Stanford commit Ryan Burns, Northwestern commit Matt Alviti, Notre Dame pledge Malik Zaire, Louisville bound Kyle Bolin, Kansas commit Montell Cozart, Purdue commit Danny Etling, Michigan State pledge Damion Terry and uncommitted four-star Mitch Trubisky for top honors.
“Getting the invite to Elite 11 in California is truly an honor, and I’m truly blessed to have the opportunity to be there,” Morris said. “It’s been a lot of hard work since Dallas.”
On top of Morris’s regular workouts, he also participated at the Adidas Invitational and New Level Athletics 7-on-7 regional to polish his skills.
“Definitely worked on my consistency and accuracy, and throwing a spiral every time,” Morris explained. “Not throwing 100 miles per hour. I came out here and showed what they liked, and obviously threw better than Dallas. I’m going to keep working and doing the same thing because obviously it worked.”
Also one of the country’s top recruiters, Morris also plans to keep on working on fellow prospects to join him in what is currently 247Sports top-ranked recruiting class.
“Definitely Laquon Treadwell, Ty Isaac, Kendall Fuller, Christian Lacouture, definitely all those guys seem like they want to come to Michigan,” Morris said. “I’m going to keep working on them and show them what they’re going to miss if they don’t.”
