Twice named an small college All-America, Morin received first-team laurels in 1964 and was selected as a second-team choice the following season. A member of two Yankee Conference championship teams, he was named an all-conference selection three times. Morin was chosen as a first-team All-East and first-team All-New England player in consecutive seasons. Even though he also played defense and served as the team's placekicker his senior year, Morin still finished his collegiate career with a then-school record 1,151 career receiving yards. He also earned a combined seven varsity letters in football, wrestling and lacrosse. The first-ever UMass player to be selected as a first-round draft pick, Morin played ten years for the Cleveland Browns.
