The first in our series on the 19 players in the Class of 2014 for Coach Pete Lembo and the Ball…
Morrison, a 6-2 170 from Fort Wayne (IN) Concordia Lutheran High School, had a standout senior season as he threw for 3,412 yards, 29 touchdowns and completed 63% of his passes. The recent graduate says he knew early on that he had the option to make the move at semester break.
"It was something that I had thought about and knew was an option during the recruiting process," Morrison said. "Once I chose Ball State it really made sense so I decided to go with it then."
Morrison pushed through and completed his high school coursework in time to enroll early, something that will be greatly beneficial to his growth as a player.
It allows me to learn the playbook and get ahead of the learning curve with the offense," Morrison said. "I'll be able to get reps during spring practice which will be beneficial,"
With Morrison enrolled, the Cardinals now have 3 scholarship QBs to chose from to replace Keith Wenning as starter next season.
As Morrison embarks on his collegiate career, he took a few moments to reflect on his senior season, which ended just a few months ago with a loss in the regional to West Lafayette."It was really a good year for our team," Morrison said. "We've struggled in the past, so a 9-4 record and a sectional championship were big for our program. Personally, I felt I had a good year leading the team and ended up earning (Summit) Conference Player of the Year honors and 1st Team All State."
