When Phillip Sims transferred from the University of Alabama at the conclusion of spring practice, Alec Morris was still finishing high school and preparing for his graduation at Allen High School in Texas.

Morris, a three-star recruit who signed with the Crimson Tide in February, knew he had an opportunity to compete for the No. 2 quarterback job at Alabama as a true freshman.

“I think there was an initial excitement and then an initial, ‘Oh crap,’" Allen offensive coordinator Jeff Fleener said. "Alec is an extremely mature kid for his age, and he really just took it all in stride. He’s very confident in what he can do. There’s no doubt that he has the physical skills and the physical stature to do it. He just has to do the homework now.”
