South Florida QB with first offer

Stephen Morris is one of the top quarterback prospects from the Sunshine State. Morris, from Miami Shores (Fla.) Monsignor Pace High School, threw for 2,005 yards and 19 touchdowns as a junior. He also completed 64% of his passes and was intercepted nine times.
"I make good decisions and I am calm in the pocket," Morris said. "I am accurate with my throws and I have a strong arm. I have good footwork, size and mobility. I am working with my coaches on ball placement, throwing off the right foot, and a shorter release point. I want to throw an even more accurate ball."
According to Morris he has one scholarship offer at this time, from Florida International.
"FIU offered about two weeks ago. It feels good because you know all that hard work pays off. Now, I want to work even harder.
"Purdue, Vanderbilt, and LSU are recruiting me the hardest right now. FSU, Mississippi State, Michigan, and Ohio State are recruiting me to.
"I am pretty open with everyone. Whoever shows interest in me I will show interest right back at you. I really like Vandy, Purdue, Michigan, and Ohio State a lot but like I said I am open."
So what will be the determining factors for Morris when it's all said and done?
"You only play football for so long so I need to get great academics. I will also be looking at the coaches. I want to get better and move on to next level. Playing time is a factor as well."
Morris, 6-2 and 186 pounds, is also playing baseball right now. He's a middle reliever.
Morris will attend spring football games at both FIU and Miami.
