Al Borges knows expectations for Shane Morris are going to be unreasonable. In Al's less than 60 second take on Shane, Borges gives an idea of how pleased he is to have Shane aboard the team, and how far Shane has to go to be ready to see the field for M. Al doesn't rule out Shane playing this season, but I get the feeling a redshirt is likely.
It is kind of strange to have Shane on the M football team. Shane has been a verbal for so long, I thought the position had become permanent
I will put the Inside Michigan Football Signing Special 2013 in the first post, in case anyone wants to watch it live, but here is a recap of what Al Borges had to say regarding Shane Morris.
Al Borges on Shane Morris:
He has everything you want as a QB
A bright kid
At Michigan for a reason and it goes beyond his abilities.
We’re going to develop him kind of from the ground up.
We’re going to start with the idea he doesn’t know a thing about playing QB.
We’re going to teach him everyday every phase of the position and get him ready as quickly as we can without rushing him into something he’s not ready to do.
From a skill level perspective; from a mentality perspective; from a demeanor perspective; he’s pretty much what you’re looking for in the position.
