After a solid sophomore performance, Ronjae Morris has been receiving interest from several schools. Morris’s work this summer could land him even more interest.

A rising junior, Ronjae Morris combined with John Giddens to form one of Louisville’s best offensive backfields. Morris rushed for 998 yards, 12 touchdowns for Male last year.

“I think I played well last year, but there’s always room for improvement,” he said. The 5-foot-9, 150-pound back obviously wants to increase his strength, but the strengths his in his game outweigh his weaknesses. “My speed is my strength. I have the ability to make people miss and I have good vision,” he said.

Morris went to two camps this spring, one in Indiana and another in Lexington, both high school camps. But his performances were impressive. “I think I performed well. I received the running back award and got invited to a top 100 camp. I got ranked 9th,” he continued.

Morris has received interest from a hand full of schools at this point, but is still awaiting his first scholarship offer. The schools who’ve been in contact are West Virginia, Ball State, Kentucky, South Florida and Michigan.

With improved strength and continued work, Morris could see his stock rise and first and foremost, he can take his team to another level.

“My goal is got get better, bigger, faster and stronger,” he said. “My goal for this year is to improve my stats and take my team deeper into the playoffs,” he finished.
