Morrow trying to sort camp schedule
Ocean Springs (Miss.) High School changed the date of its spring game with Gautier from Friday to Thursday this next week, and when Joseph Morrow found out, he knew he had a lot of work to do.
Morrow, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound wide receiver, has accumulated quite the guest list for practices this spring, and the game will be no different. Coaches from four different Southeastern Conference schools stopped by to watch him last week, and the same teams, plus a few more are saying they'll be by for the game against Gautier.
"Ole Miss, LSU, Auburn and Mississippi State all watched me practice, and I just picked up offers from Memphis and Arkansas as well," Morrow said. "I have to call all these coaches and tell them about the time change.
"I know Arkansas passes the ball a lot so that's exciting, but I just don't know much about them or Memphis. I will though because anyone nice enough to give me an opportunity, I'm willing to look at."
Morrow visited many of his options earlier this spring during junior days and traveled to the LSU Nike combine April 17, although he didn't compete due to a hamstring injury.
Nowhere near making a decision, Morrow's next round of information seeking will come this summer, when he makes the camp circuit. Camps allow schools to put prospects through a workout and evaluate recruits against one another.
The invite list is long, Morrow's not sure what all camps he'll attend.
"I know I'm going to camp at Ole Miss, I enjoy myself up there, but I'm not sure other than that," Morrow said. "Probably LSU is another one. I'm pretty sure about that. But I'm just doing research and checking things out. I like certain things about certain schools, but there's not one that is way ahead or anything."
Ole Miss wide receivers coach Ron Dickerson has stayed in contact with Morrow.
"We've built up some trust and get along well," Morrow said. "It's just going to be hard to differentiate and decide where to go."
