Before any of us just sort of look at Evan Morris as a part of this year’s Early National Signing Day commits and say, “Great – we got another kicker – that’s good….”, let’s stop and look at something that’s important, very intriguing, and sort of incredible:

Evan Morris is a kicker and he’s 6’5″ and 205 pounds.

SpartansWire favorite and Spartan badass Matt Coghlin is listed at 5’9″, 190 pounds but I’d be willing to pay for all of Coghlin’s refreshments on the next St Patrick’s Day that he’s 5’7″ and he that he weighs 175 pounds.

And let me be clear – I don’t care of Coghlin is actually 5’5″ and weighs 150 pounds – over the next two seasons, Coghlin is going to win plenty of games for the Spartans and he’s going to miss as many field goals as the amount of fruit plates Mike Panasiuk is going to eat over the next two years.

Evan Morris is about a foot taller than Coghlin and he might be able to carry Coghlin from class to class and social event to social event.

Imagine the potential for creativity in trick-play-planning with this guy lining up to kick for Dantonio.

Is it possible that this kicker might end up playing defensive end?

Evan Morris – start practicing your windmilling because Spartan Nation is going to count of more of that stuff from you once your time arrives.

But Morris’s skills aren’t limited to windmill-kicking.

He’s a punter with a huge leg.

Jake Hartbarger is coming back next season – let’s not forget about that and let’s not underestimate the value of him coming back.

But if Hartbarger breaks his leg again and the next six punters on the team also suffer injuries as they did this year, Evan Morris can put Coghlin down on the sideline and get out there to make sure the Spartans don’t have pledges from the Phi Delta Theta fraternity punting on Saturdays.

Welcome to it, Evan.

If you don’t want to just copy Geiger with the windmill, come up with some other way to go bananas in the way a kicker might in a Disney movie so that everyone can have fun with the celebration forever.

Perhaps emphasize your left-footedness.

And, one of the kicks you converted on the highlight clips looks like it would have been good from 75 yards out.
