FSU commit still interested in Clemson

Loganville (Ga.) Grayson 2019 offensive tackle Wanya Morris committed to Florida State over offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Miami and Tennessee among others in early April.

His verbal pledge hasn’t deterred other programs from recruiting him, however. In fact, Morris feels it has made them more determined.

“There’s definitely been a lot more pressure,” Morris said of his recruitment since he committed. “I’m hearing from schools a lot more actually. It’s almost like they’re coming harder than before.”

Morris said he has been hearing the most from Florida and Michigan.

Clemson, which hasn’t offered, has been in contact, though not as much as Morris would like.

“I haven’t heard much actually,” he said. “I hope for that to change.”

Asked what he likes about Clemson, Morris replied “almost everything.”

“They’ve been my dream school since I was eight,” he said, “but they’re late to the fight.”

Morris remains firm in his commitment to the Seminoles, but he is still willing to listen to other schools and what they have to offer.

“Any school that wants me can come as hard as they want,” Morris said. “Let’s leave it at that.”

Morris committed to FSU during a visit for its spring game on April 8.

Indiana, Kansas State, Louisville, Michigan, Ole Miss, Oregon State and Texas A&M have all extended offers since.
