Michael Morris is committed to Florida State, but he’s also committed to getting to know other coaches and seeing what other schools have to offer.

The 4-star 2019 defensive end out of Boca Raton (FL) American Heritage pledged to the Seminoles nearly a year ago, but schools like Clemson and Miami are giving Morris something to think about.

The 6-5, 240-pounder has offers from Florida State, Florida Atlantic, Kentucky, Miami, UCF, West Virginia and he hopes to add Clemson to that list after this weekend’s visit. His father, Mike Morris, Sr., played on the offensive line for Florida St. Morris is the No. 174-rated player in the ESPN Junior 300.

“I think an offer might come this weekend. Clemson is definitely my number two,” Morris told TigerNet earlier this week. “For me to really start re-thinking my recruitment, it would take a good friendly atmosphere and a good family atmosphere.”

Second-year defensive line coach Todd Bates has been in constant contact with Morris, piquing his interest about what Clemson has to offer and possibly playing for Bates.

He said he just really wants to build a relationship with me and I want to build a relationship with him. We've just been talking about football and school. He's a good mentor.

Morris will make his first ever visit to Clemson this weekend and his goal is to make it around to every coach on Clemson’s staff.

“I want to see the new facility and I would like to talk to each and every coach,” Morris said.

With the production of guys like Clelin Ferrell, Austin Bryant, Kevin Dodd, Shaq Lawson and all of the standout players on Clemson’s past defensive lines, Morris is certainly tempted to look at a school with such an impressive defensive line history.

“Their d-line. They always have a good d-line and a good defense in general,” he said.

Morris already has visits scheduled to Clemson and Miami and said he wants an inside look at both programs.

“The purpose would be to gain a relationship with your defensive coaches, the head coach and each and every coach. I want to see how the players feel about each of the coaches,” he said.
