North Carolina State has become a factor with MJ Morris and picked up a crystal ball for the top Nebraska football QB target.

MJ Morris is one of the top quarterback recruits left on the board in the class of 2022 but it doesn’t sound like he will be uncommitted for long.

Nebraska football has been pushing hard for Morris. The Huskers hosted him for an unofficial visit during their spring game and it sounds like it was a positive experience. This is what he had to say about the Huskers to Greg Biggins of 247 sports when he broke down his top three of Nebraska, NC State, Georgia Tech:

"“I was there for the Spring Game and it was pretty crazy to walk in and see 50,000 fans for a Spring Game. It’s a crazy atmosphere for a junior to walk in and see all that. That fan base is so loyal and the whole town is all about Nebraska football. The tradition there is crazy as well and I loved the campus and everything about the place.”"

On the heels of that visit, Nebraska football fans probably felt pretty good about where the Huskers stood with Morris who is ranked 206th overall in the 2022 class, as well as 14th-ranked among quarterbacks.

NC State football lands a crystal ball for Nebraska’s top QB target

Out of Atlanta, Georgia, Morris was near the top 50 in the 247 sports composite rankings not long ago and has dropped down to around 200.

But he’s still one of the best prospects in this class and he told 247 sports that he hoped to make a decision by the end of May.

Of course, we are at the end of the month and he hasn’t made a decision, but NC State picked up a crystal ball prediction for Morris from Steve Wiltfong, a national recruiting analyst for 247 sports. He has a confidence level of six to go along with the projection.

Morris had glowing things to say about NC State football and the Wolfpack’s ability to put players into the NFL. Here’s the key thing he told to Biggins:

"“I don’t think you can find a better head coach than coach (Dave) Doeren. He has put 4-5 quarterbacks in the NFL and for me, I call NC State ‘QBU’ (QB University) and that’s obviously my goal too.”"

Morris said he could push his decision into June but it seems like something should be coming sooner rather than later.

He might wait to take his official visits to Nebraska football, Georgia Tech, and NC State, but it feels like he’s leaning to NC State and it might be too late for the Huskers.
