This was just a single bad camp performance, so I'd say it's still a bit too early to call him overhyped. However, the track record for players who commit or are heavy UM leans as early as their Sophomore year isn't terribly stellar - Will Campbell, Marvin Robinson, and Ricardo Miller come to mind.
FTR, I wasn't calling him over-hyped right now. Just think that he will be when everything is said and done.
That said, I've never even seen him play. lol. Just a gut feeling.
I can deal with him being awful if he can continue to be an asset in recruiting. If recruits find out he is a b*tch, that will affect his ability to recruit. At that point he is useless to me. They can get another QB in the next class especially since they claim they like that Bellomy guy they took from Purdue's class last year.
FTR, as soon as I saw that he is left handed, I could take him or leave him. Left handed athletes are annoying as hell to watch.
I'm pretty sure that Morris will have a great college career, but the expectations that UM fans are putting on this kid right out of the gate are pretty unfair. Not so much on here I guess, but UM fans are talking about him being the next coming of Christ on Rivals. Kid hasn't even played his senior year of HS yet.
If the rumors of his extensive help in recruiting are true, I think that's adding to the expectations, fairly or not. But I agree, who knows how good he'll be. I think a lot of it stems from people just wanting to get back to having a pro style QB (for the most part)

How can expectations not be high, when people are told that UM has a 5* QB coming in?
I mean really, this kid may be the top HS QB (or at least in the top5).
