What will decide his recruitment (4/11/11):It can be overwhelming at times, but in the end it will come down to great academics and the quality of people. I am not ruling out any school and I am excited about my current offers.”

On Brady Hoke: “Hoke was just a terrific guy. He sat me down in his office and told me the goals of his players. He said most importantly that Michigan will be winning games.  When I asked him if he would leave Michigan under any circumstances he said, ‘I’m not going anywhere’.”

On Starting 4 Games as a Freshman on Varsity: “Playing Varsity as a sophomore is an exciting challenge and a great experience. I got most of the nerves out last year when I was moved up from freshman and ended up starting on Varsity for four playoff games due to injury.”


Sean O’Connell, “HUGE get for the Wolverines. The life long Michigan fan is only going to be a junior this coming fall, but he is far ahead of the curve for his age. Morris can make all of the throws, has a huge arm (and great touch) and just looks like a natural at the position. He won’t blow you away with his speed, but can make a few plays. Shane will likely be the #1 player in the state of Michigan for 2013 and should help attract some big time talent to join him in Ann Arbor.”

Browning Nagle, Former Pro Quarterback: “Shane Morris is the quintessential quarterback and young man. He’s very polite and his talent is incredible for a junior to be. His talent and some of the throws he makes, those are the throws you can’t teach. The dynamic nature of his talent, combined with the way he is as a person and when you put it in the broad spectrum, he’s way ahead of the game. There’s some things he will have to incorporate into his game. Consistency, is one as it is for all young plays. He’s got touch, but he has to learn to be a pitcher at times and not just a thrower. He has to become more of a pitcher at times, feel the areas and then continue to use that hose that he has got. In yesterday’s workout, his foot work was good and his drops had the correct depth.”
