Michigan 2013 QB commit Shane Morris ranked No. 16 by Rivals
The Michigan football program's quarterback of the future drew high early marks from recruiting experts this week.
Warren De La Salle quarterback Shane Morris, a 2013 Michigan verbal commitment, landed at No. 16 on Rivals.com's Top 250 prospects for 2013.
The 6-foot-3, 183-pound Morris, a Rivals 4-star recruit, is the site's top in-state prospect and the No. 2-rated pro-style quarterback in the country.
Morris committed to Michigan last May, midway through his sophomore year of high school. According to MaxPreps.com, Morris threw for 1,684 yards, 19 touchdowns and seven interceptions last season at De La Salle.
The Pilots finished with a 9-3 record, losing to Detroit Cass Tech, 6-0, in a Division 1 regional final.
Michigan has one other early commitment for 2013 ranked on the list, defensive back Dymonte Thomas.
Thomas, a safety from Alliance, Ohio, is rated as a four-star prospect and tabbed at No. 77 in Rivals' Top 250. The Wolverines' other 2013 verbal, Detroit Crockett tight end Khalid Hill, was not ranked in the initial list.
