It didn’t take Tim Morovick (San Jacinto, Calif./Mount San Jacinto Community College) long to know he was exactly where he wanted to be.
Just days after picking up an offer from Central Connecticut State, the 6-foot-2, 207-pound junior college quarterback committed to the Blue Devils.
He will sign his letter of intent amidst friends and family after the holiday season.
For Morovick, Central Connecticut State was more than just football, however.
“It’s a D-I school, so it will give me a chance to play against the top competition,” Morovick said. “But they also have my major and a master for my major in special education.
“Obviously, it goes far beyond football. Having the opportunity to be a grad assistant is great as well. The coaches have a lot of contacts, so it’ll set me up further on in life to be successful.”
For the time being Morovick will turn his attention to the gridiron after he enrolls in January.
Once there, he’ll try to unseat returning starter Andrew Clements.
Morovick is a proven winner, as his 2,367 passing yards and 18 touchdowns this season are solid. He’ll be going toe-to-toe with Clements, who threw for 1,266 yards and 10 touchdowns.
“I’m somebody who will come in and be a leader right away,” Morovick said. “I’ll try and go after that Northeastern Conference championship and win a ring.
“They have a returning starter as a senior, but obviously you don’t bring in junior college guys for no reason. I’ll have a chance to compete for the spot. It won’t be easy to beat out a returning starter, but I’m going to go in there and compete and try and win the spot.”
In committing to the Blue Devils, Morovick turned down an offer from Southwestern Oklahoma and interest from Colorado State and Utah.
