Kohl's Comments

Morris competed at the 2023 National Scholarship Camp. He scored 30/36 points on field goals, 109.08 points on kick offs, and 98.32 points on punts. At the Midwest Showcase in Chicago his progress showed up in the drill work phase as well as the charting phase of camp. In the charting phase, he scored 11/15 points on field goals, 111.1 points on kick-offs, and 104.7 on punts. He also recently attended Kohl's 2023 Underclassman Challenge and scored 16 points on field goals and 107.23 points on kick-offs. At the Midwest Showcase Camp in December of 2022, he scored 12/15 points on field goals, 110.6 points on kickoffs, and 97.46 points on punts. Morris also competed at the 2022 National Invitational Scholarship Camp in July of 2022. He scored 26/36 points on field goals and 105.5 points on kickoffs. Morris had another strong showing at the 2022 Kohl's Underclassman Challenge. He was solid on field goals by scoring 12 points. He creates great lift on his kicks, and he controls his body well with his two-step field goal approach. Morris is developing into one of the best in his class. He has shown us that he has the leg talent required to play D1 college football.
