2022 QB MJ Morris: "I’m On A Weekly Call With Coach Todd Monken"

July 9, 2020

Are the Bulldogs on the verge of signing ANOTHER 5-star quarterback?

They already have 5-star Brock Vandagriff‍ on board in the 2021 class, but the Bulldogs are also pushing hard for possible five-star MJ Morris‍ in the 2022 class.

Already ranked as one of the nation’s best in his class, Morris will likely push for five-star status due to his rare combination of arm talent and athleticism. A star centerfielder on the baseball field, Morris is a 6-foot-2 186-pound athlete who is becoming a star at the quarterback position. 

He can throw it deep, he’s accurate underneath, he can extend plays with his feet, and he can always take off for a big run when he needs too. He’s not the biggest guy, but you don’t have to be a giant quarterback to win championships at the college level when you have a dynamic skill-set like Morris.

The Bulldogs are hard after the dual-threat playmaker, and they aren’t the only ones.

“I hear from Florida, Florida State, Miami, Missouri, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Michigan, Stanford and Alabama on a regular basis”, Morris said.  I’m on a weekly call with Coach Todd Monken. The call usually lasts from 45-60 minutes and he’s teaching me NFL and college defenses. He’s a really good teacher.”

That’s a lot of time that a college football offensive coordinator spends with a high school junior. That speaks volumes to how much Morris is wanted in Athens.

“He (Monken) is looking for an athletic, smart QB that can extend plays and run. I think he’s going to do really well at UGA and I’m certain the offense will be as explosive as the defense,” Morris said. 

Morris admitted to Dawg Post that he’s not looking to make a decision anytime soon due to Covid-19, and said he would like to get out and take some visits before making a decision down the road. However, Morris knows exactly what he’s looking for in a school and is ready to get back out and see what all these programs have to offer.

“First, I’m looking at a 40 yr decision, therefore academics are important,” Morris said.  “I want to work on Wall Street when I’m done with sports. Playing time is something I’m not concerned about because I love competing and out-working my competition. My parents taught me to stay humble, but to be confident in my God-given abilities. Most importantly, I’m looking for a staff that can develop and prepare me for the NFL.”

Dawg Post ranks Morris as the No.3 prospect in the state of Georgia in the 2022 class. He’s also ranked as the No.2 dual-threat quarterback prospect and the nation’s No.41 overall prospect in the country.
