Morley was tabbed the starter for the Bobcats as a wide-eyed freshman but it paid off in spectacular fashion for him a sophomore.
Morley stamped himself as one of the state's best, throwing for 2,316 yards and 25 TD passes and already this season has thrown for 451 yards and seven touchdowns (completing 75%) in leading Grand Blanc to a 2-0 record this season.
I've gone to a few of Michigan State practices and I've met coach (Harlan) Barnett and Dantonio.I haven't talked to them much, but I have met them."
Morley said he looks forward to watching the interest in him grow as the season progresses, but said he feels he has it made with Northwestern bound Tony Jones and sophomore running back Justice Hayes as offensive weapons.
"It's great, T.J and Justice and Gabe they take so much pressure off me, if I need a big play I can just hand it off or throw a five-yard hitch to T.J. and they do the rest." While Morley was being modest, he clearly understands his value, doens't he believe he's one of the state's top quarterbacks. "I think I am, but I just get them the ball and I don't need to (try to overdo it.)
"Starting as a freshman was a real advantage for this year, learning to read the defenses and learning the offense that we run because its so complicated, the spread. My freshman year we kind of struggled a little bit but it's paying off now."
Morley said he knows the history of the great Flint area receivers like Andre Rison, Mark Ingram, Beecher head coach and former Spartan great Courtney Hawkins, Darryl Turner and many others, but he feels Jones is as good as they come.
"T.J. is a playmaker, he does everything you ask, not only just playing offense, he returns punts and kicks he's a playmaker, he's great."
While Morley is enjoying the interest from colleges, he's more interested in winning his conference and avenging a loss to an opponent who's coming up this weekend.
"Right now we're in the new KLAA confernce and we're just focused on winning our division and making it the playoffs. Every game is not a cupcake, every week is hard. We're playing Hartland who beat us in the playoffs that's definitely a big game for us."
While Jones got away from Michigan State, it will be interesting to see if the school, which has two redshirt sophomores (Keith Nichol and Kirk Cousins) and a freshman (Andrew Maxwell) who's appears to be headed for a redshirt, elects to take a quarterback in this senior class or takes a long look at a junior like Ryan Morley.
