Not much to go on, but I did find it interesting FSU was the first to admit him as a mid-term student. Plus looks like he is FOR SURE enrolling early, so we should know by Friday where he's going.
Leon McQuay said he might only have 3 hats on the table when he announces. Wouldn't say who though. #UAgame #FSU #Vandy#USC #UM #DucksLeon McQuay says he plans on enrolling early, only #FSU has admitted him as a mid-term student so far. He is working on the others #UAGameLogan Tulley-Tillman, now that's a Michigan man.Shane Morris practicing his Hoke impression
Without numerous mentions of UMich (past, present, and future ... no kidding) this would probably be too "OT" for the board:
Opinions expressed in the article (such as the one about Gardner) are not necessarily those of the OP.
At first he discusses the possibility of Max Browne taking the #1 spot from Robert Nkemdiche. (I think that is highly unlikely)
This leads me to another quarterback who will arguably be the subject of the most controversial discussion we need to have when it comes time for our next rankings in early December. Of course, I'm talking about Warren (Mich.) De La Salle's Shane Morris.
The lefty was awarded his fifth star following summer appearances at numerous camps as well as The Opening and Elite 11. However, after completing just over 50 percent of his passes as a junior, Morris started off this year 40-of-83 for 456 yards with three touchdowns and three picks. Then he was diagnosed with mononucleosis and could be out for the rest of the season, which makes it unclear if he'll be ready to play in the Under Armour All-American Game in January.
So, was the poor start due to mono or was it more of the up-and-down play from last season that held him back from his fifth star? Mono is unlikely to affect him long term when it comes to his college career, although it could delay his immediate impact depending on how long it takes to recover and gain back weight. His senior year playing sample will certainly lead to some detailed discussion.
More than likely he will lose his 5th star (whoopty doo) and hopefully he will still be able to play with a lot of his teammates in the All-American game.
Most of us knew that he was battling mono, but the reports were that he was playing through it (as he did against Brother Rice). Today Kyle Meinke reports (via a Freep Article) that Shane Morris's coach is pessimistic regarding Morris's ability to play for the rest of his senior season. Per his coach
“He won’t play this week," De La Salle coach Paul Verska told the Free Press, “and really, I’m not counting on him coming back the rest of the year."
Tough break for the future Wolverine, but assuming his bout with mono is as rough as most this seems like the right decision for his long-term health and career. A tough break after he put so much effort into getting ready for the season and all the 7-on-7s.
Here's to hoping his coach is wrong, and Shane M. makes a speedier-than-expected recovery.
shane played through mono. lost to rice 28-0. only played first half. 8/17 for 87 yards and a pick. they said he is out at least 10 days, but it could be much more. the QB for my high school football team got mono and was out for 2 months, because something about your spleen being really sensitive makes it so you cant play.
first post, thought it was post-worthy.
