It's a unique situation, to be sure. Although yet to play a down of varsity football, Lawrenceburg High School's 6'9", 308-pound senior tackle Jason Morton - a varsity basketball starter for the Tigers his freshman and sophomore years, before suffering a season-ending knee injury in preseason football practice a year ago - has verbally committed to play football at NCAA Division I Miami University, in Oxford, Ohio, next year. Morton is expected to start on the offensive line when Tigers open their 2019 season next Friday, Aug. 23, against East Central. The 18-year old Greendale resident Tweeted the following after receiving his scholarship offer from the Redhawks in last Thursday's mail:
