Alabama took a few shots at the biggest quarterback prospects in the country for the 2012 signing class.
Jameis Winston said no thanks. Gunner Kiel also passed. So that left Alec Morris, the Texas quarterback who chose the Tide after originally committing to Wake Forest.
He’s a consensus 3-star recruit from football-mad Allen High School. (Read about it’s $60 million stadium here)
Morris’ high school coach Tom Westerberg said the the 6-foot-3 passer with a strong right arm will fit right into Alabama’s offense.
“He is more of a pro-style quarterback than the college spread quarterback that’s going to go run the ball all over the place,” Westerberg said. “It’s more of a game manager, but if you look at the national championship game, they won it because they could throw the football. That’s what Alec brings to the table.”
