If you’re a Michigan fan, you’re already giddy about 2013 verbal commit Shane Morris.
The quarterback, who Rivals rates as the 16th overall players and the 2nd overall QB, won the MVP award at the Elite 11 camp in Columbus last weekend. And while this is certainly enough to be excited about, his photobombing (see: Urban Dictionary) efforts are perhaps more impressive than his quarterbacking skills.
That’s quarterback Jalin Marshall, safety Jayme Thompson and corner Cameron Burrows front and center in the picture on the right. All of them just happen to be verbally committed to The Ohio State University.
In the background you’ll find young Shane Morris, who is showing off just how strong his own verbal commitment is by throwing up a timely Block M sign with his hands. Scouts absolutely love Shane’s arm and mobility; we love his ability to troll at such a young age. You just can’t teach that, folks.
If you had any concerns about the Ohio State/Michigan rivalry over the past few years, worry no more. In fact, you already knew this was no longer a concern when Brady Hoke seemingly flipped the script on Michigan in one season and Urban Meyer began recruiting just about everyone the day he touched down in Columbus.
Verbal commits that won’t actually sign until February of 2013 are already embracing the rivalry between the two schools. This is a very good thing, and it’s only expected to pick up from here.
There’s also likely a recruiting/photobombing Internet meme (again, see: Urban Dictionary) to start from all of this, which is also welcomed.
