Load the cannon again, we have another "Boom". This one from the Northeast Ohio area as Jonah Morris committed Sunday morning to Kevin Wilson and his staff. The Hoosiers will still have plenty of work to do if they want to insure that Morris sends his fax into the IU Football offices on February 3rd as he will have many big suitors coming after him. Morris de-committed from Michigan State in November and will take an official visit to Rutgers next week. He holds offers from 12 other schools including Notre Dame, Michigan State, Wisconsin, and Pittsburgh.
In a statement posted on Twitter Morris said, "I want to thank God, my family, and all the colleges that believe in me and gave me a chance to play for their university. I have finally came across the school that's best for me, and I feel I have the best chance to achieve my ultimate goal of making it to the NFL a lot sooner, as well as receiving a great degree. I will be joining the number one passing offense in the Big Ten, I am officially committed to Indiana University. I have a great bond with Coach McCullough, Coach Wilson, Coach Johns and the rest of the Indiana staff. I am confident and know they will get me where I need/want to be, and that they will never give up on me after a simple mistake or something. #GoHoosiers."
Morris is listed as the 385th best player in the nation, the 18th best "athlete" in the nation, and the 13th best prospect out of Ohio by 247 Sports composite rankings. From tweets from the staff and other committed players it looks as if Morris will play on the offensive side of the ball.
Morris played his high school ball at Archbishop Hoban in Akron, OH where they claimed the 2015 state title. Drew Sarachman describes Morris as an "absolute stud" and a "great player, better kid".
The six-foot-four prospect will probably be used on offense. He shows tremendous speed and can go up and get balls that most others cannot. He also played on defense in high school and is not afraid to get physical. Below are his highlights from his senior year.
