Following a junior season with St. Laurence (Burbank, IL), Isaiah Morrison found a new high school at Chicago’s Solorio Academy as a senior this past Fall.
During February, the defensive back confirmed another change of venue after signing with Western Illinois.
Now, having his future school secured, Morrison reflected on becoming a member of the Leatherneck’s football program.
“The coaches and the alumni are amazing!” he said. “I’ve never seen anything like it. Western isn’t too small or too big, it is just the right size. The academics are perfect so everything just fell into place!”
The 2018 prospect had also finalized the potential list of college teams to both Toledo and North Dakota State as well.
Western Illinois being an in-state program close to home became a key selling point for Morrison while weighing his options.
“I wanted my family to be able to see me play on Saturdays,” he said. “Western coaches were just amazing during the recruiting process and it just felt like home.”
The senior has currently been focusing on preparation for the next level before getting back on campus.
“During the off-season, I go to speed training three days a week and I have my Western workouts three days a week,” he said. “So, I’ve been busy. My only off day is Sunday.”
