Morris excited about TCU offer

TCU has identified another "mauler" type offensive lineman that would fit right in with their ground and pound style, Denton Guyer's Patrick Morris. HornedFrogBlitz.com caught up with Morris to get his take on his visit to TCU's most recent junior day.

The TCU Horned Frogs have one of the top ground attacks in all of college football. While it's true that the three headed monster of Ed Wesley, Matthew Tucker and Waymon James are the stars of the show, it's the big fellas up front the do the dirty work. TCU has identified another "mauler" type offensive lineman that would fit right in with their ground and pound style, Denton Guyer's Patrick Morris. HornedFrogBlitz.com caught up with Morris to get his take on his visit to TCU's most recent junior day.

"I really liked it a lot" said Morris. "I liked that it was smaller than other junior days like Texas Tech's. It was like we each had our own coach spending time with us; it made it much more personal."

At 6'3" and 285 pounds, Morris has the perfect build for an interior lineman but better than that, he has the attitude for it. While on his visit, did the TCU staff mention where they envision him playing?

"They told me they like me at center and that's where they would start me" said the Morris. "I play guard in high school but I wish I played center. I think it would be a lot of fun."

While some prospects enjoy the recruiting process and seek out attention, others aren't as comfortable with the spotlight. Morris says that he never really envisioned himself being in this position and says it can be too much at times.

"I'm really just overwhelmed with everything right now" he said. "I never really thought about playing college football or thought this would happen so I really don't know what I'm going to do right now. I'm not going to commit right away because there's so much to think about."

While it originally sounded like Morris may push his decision back until closer to signing day, he went on to clarify what he means by waiting a little bit.

"I'm really just taking my time with all of this" he said. "I'm not going to commit until sometime around spring football. We start April 21st and it goes into May. I'll probably decide around then."

While Morris may not be ready for all of the attention he's receiving, he may want to be prepared for more. Coming back for his senior season, Morris will be one of the leaders on an impressive Guyer offense. His status will only continue to grow as the season wears on and with that, he'll garner even more attention.

Will this physical lineman stay close to home and play for the Horned Frogs, or will he take his talents elsewhere? Stay logged on to HoenedFrogBlitz.com to find out.
