As a high school sophomore, Shane reminds you of a better version of our 5-star, four year starting all time leader in touchdowns/yards, second round NFL draft pick and current NFL starter? Man, he's gonna be a good one!

I genuinely think that this guy could help out most teams as a freshman. And your telling me that he's not even a junior in high school? yeesh

Had to be the one at the 3:43 mark into triple coverage.  Whattttttttttttttttttttttttt.

Did seem like he didn't really go through all the reads though.  Seemed like he found a guy at the snap and stayed w/ him.    I think he only checked down 3-4 times in that video.  But maybe it's just me. Can't argue w/ the results!!

Well I am impressed especially from a kid who is so young.  Really excited to see this kid mature both in his physical body as well as his football skills.  Does have a small "crow hop" in some of his throws and doesn't have the tightest ball at times.... That said I'm pretty sure we have a legit 5 star QB commit in the 2013 class.

Ron Thompson had some nice grabs in this game.  Shane Morris throwing the ball makes it look like the defense is at a huge disadvantage.

Dear lord that kid can place a ball.  The windup might be a tad slow but he looks unbelievable.  I take back everything I said about lefty QB's.

This is by no means an insult to Morris, who I think is going to be a good player...

...but I've seen very bad quarterbacks look great in 7-on-7's.  Everything you see in those highlights should be taken with a grain of salt.  Lots of kids can place a ball, find an open man, etc. when they're not facing a rush, when they're not faking a handoff, when they're not dropping back from under center, etc.

As for the person who thinks he's better than Chad Henne based on these highlights...yikes.

It's tough to say without the rush, but he did show a nice mix of zip, touch and ball placement.  How tall is Morris?  Hopefully 6 foot plus to avoid getting the ball swatted. I liked Henne but one of the problems he had was that although he was tall, he would squat a little when he threw the ball, and also throw it on a line, which would lead to more batted down passes.

If Morris can be relaxed in the pocket with a rush, he's going to be deadly.

From what I have heard he's not really that young.  I think he was held back for athletic purposes.  He should be going into his senior year.  I don't think it effects the hype for him though he looks good regardless.

I agree that having a tall line and and defensive pressure in front of you can change a lot of things, but it is still impressive to see the variety of throws he made and the tough on them.  Of course, that's edited and unless we were there in person we'll never know if he Navarred a couple 5 feet in front of the target but for a soph there's a lot to like there.
