6’0″, 180 pound wide receiver Jerel Morrow received an offer from the Missouri Tigers a couple of days ago, after being offered by the Nebraska Cornhuskers on the 10th of April.
Jerel Morrow was recently rated by 247Sports as the best recruit in Kansas, a top twenty athlete, and the 210th best recruit overall. He received a rating of 92 and is valued as a four-star recruit.
In my eyes, Morrow is the best recruit in the state of Kansas, a top 75 receiver/top 20 athlete, and one of the best 250 recruits in the nation. I have him as a low, four-star recruit, and Jerel Morrow has the ability to upgrade a receiving corps in 2013.
In the future, the talented Emporia High star will be a difference-maker at the college level. ESPN hasn’t even rated him, but that’s their own loss. Jerel Morrow is a star with elite speed, and he doesn’t go down easily either. He’s a smart player, and both the Kansas Jayhawks and Nebraska are going hard after him.
Jerel Morrow currently has offers from Kansas, Kansas State, Ohio, Nebraska, Missouri, and Army. Other teams interested in the four-star recruit are Iowa State, Navy, Minnesota, and Purdue.
The three front-runners for Jerel Morrow have always been Nebraska, Kansas, and Kansas State, with some analysts saying that he will stay in Kansas. However, the Huskers made two big impressions on the young star in his visits to their campus. Missouri is the fourth likely destination spot for the 2013 recruit, but it seems like Nebraska, Kansas, and Kansas State are the top three and, most likely, in that order.
In high school, Morrow has shown elite playmaking ability and a real nose for the end zone. He is one of the most underrated recruits in the country, and is a legitimate four-star, top 250 recruit who should not be overlooked. I am surprised that more big programs haven’t taken notice, but maybe it’s all for the better.
Charlie Weis was the first to contact Jerel Morrow during the spring evaluation period, and he has been extremely active in trying to get the WR/ATH to Lawrence. He might be able to convince him to choose the Jayhawks over the favored Huskers, and his recruitment is something all Jayhawks fans should be watching intently.
