Junior Shane Morris is in the lead of Michigan’s crowded quarterback competition at the end of the team’s spring season. Morris just completed 11 of 24 pass attempts for 135 yards and a touchdown to lead his half of the roster to a 7-0 win in a full-contact spring game Saturday afternoon.
Afterward, head coach Jim Harbaugh said Morris separated himself from several other players competing for the spot during the past month.
“If I look at it overall in spring ball, Shane would be ahead,” Harbaugh said.”The competition will rage on, though, starting tomorrow.”
Morris outplayed early enrollee Alex Malzone (15-of-27, 95 yards, 2 interceptions) on Saturday. Redshirt freshman Wilton Speight did not take any snaps in the game.
