Chris Petersen snagged two quality quarterback prospects in his 2018 recruiting class, but a leader of the 2019 group isn’t sitting idly by.
Quarterback Dylan Morris was named a Pro Football Hall of Fame Academy All-American on Wednesday. The 4-star pro-style prospect announced his selection via Twitter.

The PFHOF Academy is a new portion of the Hall of Fame’s massive expansion project, which Hall president and CEO David Baker conceptualized around the three-pronged idea of honoring the legends of football, preserving its history and developing its future. Multiple turf fields already exist near the Hall of Fame’s buildings, as well as the 100-yard field at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, which opened last August, and more facilities are on the way. Baker included this part of the complex to help groom the game’s next generation by creating a center for an annual talent summit, where the nation’s top players can gather to learn from some of the best coaches.
Morris is part of the inaugural class and has been invited to participate in the event, which takes place July 17-19. He’s also the lone quarterback commitment of Washington’s 2019 class, which is far from complete at this stage.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound signal caller from Graham, Wash., committed to the Huskies in July, which is quite early for a prospect who at the time hadn’t even completed his junior season. The No. 1 prospect in Washington and No. 3 pro-style quarterback in the 2019 class (according to 247Sports) remains committed to Petersen as part of a group that stands at five recruits.
