Report: Shane Morris, Michigan's 5-star QB commit, could miss rest of season with mono
ANN ARBOR -- Shane Morris is the gem of Michigan's 2013 recruiting class. He's a top-three quarterback nationally, and is expected to compete to be Denard Robinson's successor next year.
But the five-star recruit has hit an apparent bump in the road.
The Detroit Free Press is reporting Morris has been diagnosed with mononucleosis and could miss the remainder of his high school season at Warren De La Salle.
“He won’t play this week," De La Salle coach Paul Verska told the Free Press, “and really, I’m not counting on him coming back the rest of the year."
Morris was the first recruit to verbally commit to Michigan's 2013 class, and has since been credited for helping woo several high-profile players to follow him. The Wolverines' class now ranks No. 2 according to Rivals and No. 1 according to Scout.
Yet, Morris remains the headliner of the group.
He is 40-of-83 passing for 456 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in four games this year for De La Salle, according to the Free Press.
