Elite OL says Clemson offer is a ‘dream come true’

On Friday, Clemson extended an offer to Loganville (Ga.) Grayson four-star offensive lineman Wanya Morris.

Morris, one of the top offensive tackle prospects in the 2019 class, spoke with TCI about his opportunity to play for the Tigers.

“It’s a dream come true,” Morris said of the offer.

Morris (6-6, 295) was informed of the offer by his former head coach at Grayson, current Clemson safeties coach Mickey Conn.

The likes of Georgia, Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Michigan and Oklahoma are among the two dozen schools that have offered Morris to date.

Despite the lot of big-time programs on his list, Morris said his latest offer from the Tigers is special for him.

“I’ve been a big Clemson fan since I was eight,” said Morris, who lives just a couple of hours away from the school.

What stands out to him about Dabo Swinney’s program?

“I love everything about it,” Morris said, “like how they have fun but work at the same time.”

Morris committed to Florida State in April 2017 before reopening his recruitment last November.

On the same day of his de-commitment, Morris named a top six of FSU, Florida, Oklahoma, LSU, Georgia and Auburn.

However, after their offer, expect the Tigers to be in the running for his services until the end.

“They’re in the race,” he said.

Morris has visited Clemson multiple times and plans to return but said he isn’t sure yet when he will be back on campus.

ESPN ranks Morris as the No. 3 offensive tackle and No. 19 overall prospect in the 2019 class.
