Matt Morin has one of the strongest arms on the West Coast, his accuracy has improved this spring and now major programs are taking more notice.
Arizona State and San Diego State have offered this week and Morin, a 6-foot-2, 217-pound lefty, said he's definitely interested in both programs. The Sun Devils especially stand out for many reasons.
"It's awesome," Morin said. "(A few) days ago they came out and watched me throw and ended up offering me at lunchtime and I'm pretty pumped about that. It's the Pac-10 and that's awesome. They have a great program and now I just want to learn more about them.

"They move up because they have a great coaching staff and they throw the ball a lot and they've been close for a couple years. It's a great program and they're on the rise, that's why I like them so much. I'd really consider going there because it's an awesome school so I guess you could say it's a favorite."
At San Diego State, quarterbacks coach Brian Sipe and offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig especially stand out and location isn't bad for the Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral prospect who threw for 1,719 yards with 12 touchdowns and five interceptions in his junior season.
"The quarterbacks coach at SDSU is amazing, he's a legend, and both the offensive coordinator and the quarterbacks coach came down and watched me practice on Monday," Morin said.
"It would be an honor to be coached by both of those guys. That would be great because it's right next to my house pretty much. They'll be coming up this year and be like the next Nevada so I think they're going to do great."
Colorado State has also offered Morin, who said he'll probably take an unofficial visit to San Diego State in the next couple weeks and then head out to Arizona State sometime in June.
Camp stops at USC, UCLA and Notre Dame are also expected in the next month or so. Miami and Boise State have also been in contact with Morin, who was one of the better quarterbacks at the recent Berkeley Elite 11 regional workout. He's also stood out at numerous camps.
