Phillip Morris

Wide receiver/running back/defensive back

Timmonsville High School (Timmonsville, SC)

6'4", 192 lbs.



The Timmonsville Whirlwinds advanced to the 1-A upperstate title
game, and the multi-talented Morris was a big reason why. Morris rushed
for 1,300 yards and 16 touchdowns, had 530 yards receiving and seven
touchdowns, intercepted four passes, and forced six fumbles.


Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia are the schools
currently recruiting Morris, but only Clemson and South Carolina have
offered.

Although Morris won't make his decision until the end of the month, the
combination of Clemson's strong finish and South Carolina's firing of
several coaches could prove to be big factors in him becoming a Tiger.


"It really made me think when South Carolina fired those coaches,"
Morris said. "I felt like if I went there, I couldn't get used to the new staff.
As far as Clemson, they have a very balanced staff. I became close with
Coach Swinney when I was there, and Coach Burns came by to see me
today (Monday)."


"With all that is going on right now, I would say I am leaning towards
Clemson. They have the potential to be a great team, and I feel like I can
fit into the offense."


Morris is the brother of Clemson rover Kelvin Morris.


"Him being there could also have a lot of weight on my decision."
