Jordan Morris is in the midst of another standout season with Stanford. The junior has eight goals and two assists in 13 appearances and the Cardinal have surged to a No. 4 ranking in both the RPI and coaches polls. It's probably safe to say he's enjoying himself quite a bit.

So, it probably shouldn't come as a complete surprise that Ives Galarcep is reporting Morris is still "weighing his options." Those options appear to be one of two things: Remaining at Stanford for his senior year or accepting the Sounders' offer that would make him the "highest-paid Homegrown Player in MLS history."

Of course, Galarcep also states that Morris is believed to "favoring a deal with the Sounders" and calls a move to Europe "unlikely."

In other words, this is going just about how you'd expect it to and roughly how we've suggested it would. Morris may or may not leave college early, but he's likely going to end up with the Sounders eventually.
