Landon Morris Landon Morris 6'6" | TE Nazareth | 2021 IL , TE, Nazareth

Ht/Wt: 6’6/215 Ι  Position Rank: 2 Ι Overall Rank: 22  Ι Commitment: Syracuse

 

Ability:

This is a gifted TE prospect that is only going to continue to develop. As a junior, Morris lined up primarily on the outside at X receiver, however, most colleges project him as a TE at the next level. Morris does a great job on his stem in his routes and can plant his foot and come out of routes effortlessly. He’s an exceptional route runner for a guy who is 6’6. Morris excels, bursting off the line and breaking the DB’s cushion. More often than not, he’ll push at the defenders outside shoulder, get him to flip his hips early and plant and come underneath him. Morris is a matchup nightmare in the red zone and a likely target for the 1 on 1 ball. Morris is a natural hands catcher and doesn’t fight the ball in nor use his body. I think he’ll cause problems for LB’s or rolled up safeties at the next level when working
