This kid is a beast, as we all already knew. He has a rocket for an arm and some very good mobility. Watch the video and lay your Fred Jackson praise on the future Wolverine star.
Shane Morris highlights of Jr. year
Didn't know he is a south paw. Will that impact us?
I think the main issue is that if a lefty is at QB, right tackle becomes the most critical spot for pass protection instead of left tackle. Down the road, if he's our clear-cut #1 QB, we'll probably put our best pass-blocking tackle on the right side.
It's funny how big of an impact he is already having on the program. He's been recruiting since he committed.
I'm so excited for this kid.
Under pressure on every throw, still making great plays. Love the athleticism on that hurdle (1:03)!
Yeah, you can definitely tell he is taking a shot after almost every throw but still hangs in there to make the throw. Wait until he throws behind the offensive line he will have at Michigan.
Doesnt stare down receivers
Finds second or third reciever
Need to add more muscle
Decision making (forces throws)
Throwing on the run when he can't set feet
He's got all the tools and attitude to be a star after a year or two at Michigan.
I'm not a professional scout by any means but what I agree with on your list, which I think is huge, is that he finds his second or third target. He does it very quickly too. As a part of that he seems to routinely find the hot route or just flat out open man. He can also put it right on him. Pretty good stuff if you ask me.
Michigan became "Quarterback U" in the nineties and 2000s, sending Collins, Brady, Grbac, Henson, Griese and Henne to the pros (and Mallett was next). While it's been a great ride with Denard, it's exciting to see UM going back to the pro-style offense, and recruiting pro-style QBs like Morris.
I totally agree. As much fun as it is to watch Denard make incredible plays, it will be nice to go back to a pro style offense with our big 6'3" receivers that can take over games
I don't think that we will run an exclusively "pro-style" offense. We will use whatever skill set our qb has which for Morris is his arm. For Gardner, I still think we will run a lot of the same plays. What I was most encouraged about this video is Morris's mobility which I think is pretty important although not completely necessary (Stafford).
loved the tape but kept wondering why they needed to indicate where he was standing at the start of each play. he's the qb-i'm not looking for him to line up split wide
