After RB Kenny Williams and WR Derek Edwards commitments over the weekend it was a pleasant surprise to see the staff pick up an offensive lineman. This is very good news, especially considering the relative lack of depth, especially at the interior line spots, where I'm guessing that's where OL Tony Morales will eventually play. Let's get to it.
And for those of you who have been looking for free video on Morales, look no further. That's right, it's what I do. I do my best to find free things. Huge. Quickly. After the jump.
The Player Speaks: RRS.com's Aaron Dickens has news and quotes from all three commits from this weekend (free and worth your time) and Morales had this to say:
"I called Coach Moore at first, because I was going to commit to him, but he didn't answer. I called Coach Brown and I told him, and he was real excited. He told me to call Coach Moore later on because he was in a meeting.
"He (Moore) was real excited. He told me that he was committed to me and that I was committed to him. He said that he wasn't going to look at any other centers."
Scouting Report: When you get to the video, you'll note that this video appears to be from Morales' sophomore year in high school (he mentions that he's about to be a junior), where he was playing almost exclusively left tackle and for a sophomore in high school playing the most important position on the line, I could say that I'm pretty impressed. He has good feet and moves well and he sticks with his block. Again, it's pretty amazing that he has these traits at such a young age. And from Dickens' article, it appears that Morales is slated to play center for Texas Tech, and by watching his video, this makes sense. I think he's more than quick enough to handle this position.
