Who's Crying?: ECU, Illinois, Purdue, Toledo, Utah, Vanderbilt, WKU

Money Quote: "You can motion me out wide … to catch a few balls. I can do that, or (run the) zone read, option or sweep toss … I believe I can do it all as an every down back."

Which SU Coach Gets a Bonus?: Wheatley and Adkins were the main guys in landing Morris.

Fun Fact: The ACC was a major factor in landing Morris, as was Wheatley going down to Georgia to spend a whole day visiting the back, as Orange Fizz mentions here.
