Rarely even mentioned by most when discussing the candidates involved in Alabama's offseason quarterback competition, Alec Morris continues to impress head coach Nick Saban with his approach to the team's offense.

In fact, Morris may very well be the front-runner at this point judging by Saban's most recent comments following Alabama's second scrimmage of fall camp.

"Alec has done a nice job all [preseason]," Saban said according to AL.com. "I think he does a really good job of understanding the offense. He helps the other players play better. And I think that he has probably shown command at the position, which I think is important. We've just got to continue to work on touch, accuracy, efficiency. But I've been really pleased with what Alec has done in this camp."

With less than two weeks left until the season opener against Wisconsin, time is running out on the Tide to make a decision before the season kickoff.
