"I really love the coaching staff. I love coach (Brian) Sipe and coach (Andy) Ludwig and Rocky Long are going to do great things at San Diego State. With those three coaches and everyone else they're going to turn that program into a powerhouse and I'd love to be there to help do it."
Morin, the quarterback of the B2G Sports 7-on-7 team, also had offers from Arizona State and Colorado State and many other programs were showing interest. Rivals.com rates him as the No. 18 pro-style quarterback in the 2012 class and No. 50 in the California state rankings.
