East Texas Gymnast Prepares For Nationals And College Recruiters

She is one of the most highly recruited gymnasts in the country, and is preparing for her third trip to nationals, yet you wouldn't know it by her laid back demeanor. Storey Morris will join around 450 of the nations top level 10 gymnasts this weekend at the 2007 Junior Olympic National Championships in Cincinnati. The regional all-around champ has college scholarship offers coming out her ears, yet she has an uncanny ability to take it all in stride.

"It's exciting but I don't really focus on that or anything," Morris said.  "I just focus on going and doing my routines and having fun."

"Just how many (college recruiters) have called in the last seven days and said, 'see you in Cincinnati, We'll talk for a second,'" said Martin Parsley her coach at Texas East Gymnastics.  "I'm going, I don't know if I'm going to have that much time. I've got a gymnast to coach."

Storey leaves for Cincinnati Wednesday night, will make an unofficial visit to Ohio State, then compete Saturday evening.  She has scholarship offers from the University of Kentucky, the University of Denver and Ohio State among others.
