The recruiting never ends and Washington State continues to haul in their 2013 class during the season. Jamal Morrow, a running back and defensive back out of Romoland, CA, has joined a good group of players to say they are pledging Crimson and Gray. Jamal is a compact back, going 5’8 and around 180 lbs. His frame can still add some weight definitely, but his skills are very evident.
He has the smoothest running style of anybody we’ve looked at in this class and it makes it seem as if he isn’t really going very fast, but he pulls away from people regularly. I am most impressed with his ability in the hole because he is very patient at the point of attack and knows when to let things happen and set up his blocks before exploding. He also has the ability to get North and South as fast as anybody in high school football, as he’ll turn sideline plays up the field instead of running out of bounds and outrun bad angles in a heartbeat. And he can catch the football out of the backfield.
Morrow becomes the 13th commitment to this class and joins Gerard Wicks as nice play makers from the running back position. Here’s some video of our newest recruit.
