Recruiting: Alec Morris picks Alabama

REPORT: Alabama gets commitment from quarterback Alec Morris

Tidesports.com via twitter reported that Allen, Texas quarterback Alec Morris committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide.

The new Alabama football recruit stands 6’3” and weighs 235 lbs.

Morris is a three-star prospect, according to Rivals. Scout lists Morris as a three-star prospect. According to Scout’s analysis, “Average sized quarterback he has a short stroke when throwing the ball. He is very accurate and can hit all the short and medium range passes inside or outside. Question is on the longer passes does he have the arm strength to complete them.”

Morris first picked Wake Forest for his verbal commitment. Morris made the verbal in late July during a visit to the campus.

But that has changed. Apparently the decisions by heavily recruited quarterback Jameis Winston sparked a strong move by Alabama.

“I think the more experience Alec got, the better he got,” Allen head coach Tom Westerberg told the Plano, Texas newspaper. “If you look at his highlight tape in chronological order you can definitely see the improvement.”

According to the newspaper, the “then-junior threw for 2,533 yards to go with 22 touchdowns and just six interceptions in his first year as Allen’s varsity starter.”
