After a big junior season, Concordia Lutheran's David Morrison continued to work and waited patiently for an offer to come, and his diligence paid off recently as Ball State became his first offer.
"It was definitely exciting," the 6'2, 170-pound quarterback said. "They're one of the schools I really like most that are recruiting me. It's just a blessing to have that offer. I've been down there three or four times. I went to a game, camp last year, and they had me down there for a one day and one of their spring games."
Two of the main reasons Morrison has a big interest in the Cardinals are the staff and the way they run their offense.
"I love the coaches there. I feel like they have a great system and they really value academics and character, and those are big thing for me. I think their system fits me well. They throw a lot, the quarterbacks there have been very successful under that system, which is appealing."
Indiana stopped in to see him throw on Monday and he had a chance to speak to them about it later that night.
"I thought it went really well. I spun the ball well. I talked to them and they said that they're real impressed with my mechanics, accuracy and arm strength. They said they just started the process with me, so they want me to come down to camp this summer and get to know me better and that's where an offer could take place if it will happen."
There are schools other than the Hoosiers and Cardinals who are recruiting Morrison as well, and the way things are trending, more are likely to catch on as the process moves along.
"Purdue came in the school at the beginning of spring evaluation period. I didn't throw for them, they just talked to my coach. Bowling Green is also coming Thursday to watch me throw and I've been in contact with Miami (Ohio) also."
