CARSON, Calif. - Not many quarterbacks on the West Coast have a stronger arm than Matt Morin, who zips the ball to receivers all over the field and has no problem throwing any of the routes.
Morin, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound prospect from Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral, was one of the best quarterbacks Saturday at the Elijah Asante Elite Quarterback Camp and will be seen at a lot of places over the next couple months.
Already claiming an offer from Colorado, Morin said he plans to call the new Buffaloes' coaching staff this week to learn more about the program and to figure out if the two could be a match.
"They've been sending me a lot of letters lately and this week I'm going to start calling them and asking them a lot of questions because I know they have a new head coach," Morin said.
"I'm pretty sure they're going to have a good running game which could open up the pass so I'm going to start asking them some questions.
"I pretty much want to know what they expect out of their quarterbacks and what their main focus is of the offense. I don't really know much about them. I've read the letters they sent me, but I'm just going off those."
Not only does Morin have an impressively strong left arm but he also has a college-ready build and is planning to show off his game at numerous camps this spring and summer across the West Coast.
So far, he's planning to work out at the Los Angeles NIKE Camp, the Berkeley Elite 11 camp, the Palo Alto NIKE Camp and the Boise State camp. There is also a strong consideration to attend Colorado's camp.
Morin, who threw for 1,719 yards with 12 touchdowns and five interceptions in his junior season, said Miami, Alabama, LSU, Oregon, Nebraska, UCLA, USC, Washington, Cal and Oregon State are showing interest.
Other camp stops could happen over the summer so things are looking up for the Southern California quarterback.
"It's pretty much waiting for spring practice to start so I can see more about the schools and keep getting better myself," Morin said.
