Shane Morris has spoken. Sort of.
Two weeks before National Letter of Intent signing day on Feb. 6 - known in some circles as an unofficial national holiday - the Michigan football recruit issued this edict on his Twitter account, which has more than 21,000 followers.
Media: Please don't ask for anymore interviews until I get to Michigan. I'm done with interviews for my high school career. Thank you.— Shane Morris (@S_Morris12) January 23, 2013
And Morris, a five-star ranked quarterback and a senior at De La Salle High School in Warren, Mich., is not verified yet. Then again, neither is Denard Robinson.
Ther's some some irony here. Next year, when Morris is a freshman, he won't be allowed to speak with the media (per football media relations policy). So - and I write this all with a grain of salt - I guess we won't hear from Morris again until the fall of 2014.
Morris isn't the only one who's issued a personal media embargo prior to Feb. . Eddie Vanderdoes, a five-star defensive lineman from Northern California, also took that route.
I will NOT talk to any Media from here till NSD. Process is getting stressful, annoying and outta control. I need to step back and breathe— EV4™ (@EddieVanderdoes) January 24, 2013
Vanderdoes, by the way, has less than 4,100 followers on Twitter.
