As expected, Wanya Morris’s recruitment is picking up — and quickly.
After collecting his first two offers from Syracuse and Boston College last November, the 6-foot-5, 265-pound sophomore offensive tackle from Loganville (Ga.) Grayson has attracted attention from top schools in the South in 2017.
Morris is part of a touring group with elite 2019 prospects from Georgia, and he has added offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, LSU and Miami following visits to those schools.
Next stop for Morris and company? Clemson on Saturday for the Tigers’ Junior Day.
“I’m looking forward to a pretty productive visit and if it’s God’s will I’ll get offered because Clemson is one of my dream schools,” Morris told The Clemson Insider.
Morris has been on Clemson’s campus a handful of times, including for the N.C. State game last season. He is a fan of Dabo Swinney and the way he carries himself.
“I love the new facility and the coaches, and Dabo is an amazing person,” Morris said. “I mean he’s very friendly and knows how to handle his business, and he treats his players like his own.”
With his size, mobility and upside, Morris has a lot to offer as an offensive lineman.
What does he feel he could bring to the table for Clemson?
“Definitely my athleticism,” he said, “and my ability to adjust to speed rushers.”
Morris started at left tackle for Grayson, protecting 2017 Clemson quarterback signee Chase Brice. The Rams beat Roswell for the Class 7A state championship in 2016.
