Michigan football QB commit Shane Morris impressive again at national 7-on-7 tournament
Shane Morris wasn't able to lead his squad to a repeat championship this weekend.
But overall, the future Michigan football quarterback finished with another impressive showing at the IMG/Madden Football National Championships 7-on-7 tournament in Bradenton, Fla.
Morris, a 2013 Michigan commit, led the Detroit-based "Maximum Exposure Blue" team to the championship game for a second straight season, only this year, his club lost to Florida's "Team Tampa" in the final.

"The nation’s No. 2 pro-style signal-caller and No. 22 prospect overall got off to a slow start, but when tournament play began, Morris quickly heated up," the site wrote. "The velocity and touch was there for the future Michigan Wolverine, as the 6-foot-3, 201-pound Morris fit the football in several tight windows.
"Morris hit several big plays downfield, and other than a couple of tough throws against a swarming Team Tampa squad, he was close to perfect on the tournament’s second day."
The 6-foot-3 Morris is rated as the second-best pro-style quarterback in America for 2013 by both Rivals.com and 247sports.com. Both sites also list the four-star signal caller as the 22nd overall prospect nationally -- making him the highest-rated recruit in Michigan's No. 1 overall class for 2013.
According to 247sports.com, Morris teamed up at the IMG camp this weekend with fellow 2013 Michigan commits Cstont'e York and Khalid Hill.
York is a three-star receiver from Chandler Park Academy, while Hill is a three-star tight end from Detroit Crockett.
