Oceanside (Calif.) El Camino quarterback Colton Morrison picked up an offer from San Diego State a few months back but the offer was contingent on the signal caller achieving a qualifying SAT score. Morrison's test came back on Thursday and his college decision came shortly after.
"I committed to San Diego State yesterday," Morrison said. "I'm very excited and so relived to have this decision out of the way so I can just focus on my upcoming senior season.
"They offered me a couple of months ago but I only have a 2.7 GPA so they wanted me to score high on my SAT before the offer was a firm one. I got my test back yesterday and did pretty well. I called up Coach Miller and told him how I did and he told me my offer was now a firm one. I committed on the spot."
Morrison, 6-5, 200 pounds saw his junior season cut short after just three games due to a torn hip flexor and a concussion. He still threw for 444 yards, and five touchdowns and really impressed at the NIKE Camp at USC last April.
"San Diego State is the perfect school for me," Morrison said. "It's close to home and I love the location. I've known the coaches for about two years now and I love the offense. They run the spread and a lot of no huddle, which is the same offense we run at El Camino.
"I just felt comfortable and I like how the depth chart plays out to. They only have three quarterbacks on the roster so after I red-shirt to put on some weight, I'll have a chance to compete for playing time right away."
