Recruiting: Morris Solid To Clemson Despite One More Trip

Early in the recruiting process, Phillip Morris had narrowed his choices
down to South Carolina and Clemson. The fact that his brother, Kelvin,
plays for the Tigers, and that South Carolina fired several coaches after
the season had him leaning towards Clemson.
Morris visited the school over the weekend, and came away knowing
where he wanted to continue his playing days at.
"My visit to Clemson went very well, and I decided to commit because of
the things I saw," Morris said. "My host was Maurice Nelson, and we had
a great time. What really made me commit was the atmosphere. It felt
like family, and that is very important to me."
Although he has committed to Clemson, Morris plans on making a visit
to South Carolina State in the very near future, just to make sure that he is
making the right choice.
"I want to visit there, just in case," Morris said. "I am looking forward to
being at Clemson, but if I felt I could be more comfortable somewhere
else, that could change things."
Although Morris, who says he is qualified academically, played a number of
positions for Timmonsville, he has been told that we will play wide
receiver for the Tigers.
This season Morris rushed for 1,300 yards and 16 touchdowns, had 530 yards receiving and seven touchdowns,
intercepted four passes, and forced six fumbles.
