Bowling Green – Quintin Morris, Tight End, Senior
A wide receiver who transformed into a tight end last year under new head coach Scot Loeffler, Quintin Morris could be the next hidden gem of the Mid-American Conference. At 6-foot-4 with an athletic style of play, Morris fits well into what we’re starting to see at the tight end position at the NFL level from players like George Kittle, Mark Andrews and David Njoku as tight ends that play like wide receivers.
Morris was by far the best pass-catcher for the Bowling Green Falcons during the 2019 season, helping him to a second-team All-MAC selection. He was able to pace the Falcons in all receiving categories, logging 55 receptions for 649 receiving yards and four touchdowns. Morris was also able to prove himself as a reliable target against tough competition, going for 92 yards on 10 catches against Notre Dame.
With the outlook projecting Morris to have a big season, seeing him as a preseason first-team All-MAC on multiple platforms, he has the potential to really draw interest from the NFL as teams are trying to adapt to the new offensive styles that are coming to the league. If he can once again lead Bowling Green in all receiving categories, that should be more than enough to garner the attention of scouts.
