Four-star lineman talks A-Day

Christian Morris, four-star offensive tackle from Memphis-East, Tenn., is closing in on double-digit scholarship offers. He visited Tuscaloosa this past weekend and has favorites.

"The visit to Alabama was great," said Christian Morris. "The coaches want to come watch me play in my spring game. They were sending my game film to Nick Saban. They have been recruiting me for a while.

Morris shared his thoughts on the A-Day game and the atmosphere at Bryant-Denny Satdium.

"I thought the spring game was pretty good," he said. "I look up to [D.J.] Fluker. I like the way they play out there. I really like their style of play.

"I like the atmosphere there. What I can say about the atmosphere is 'wow'. It's very intense. They have a lot of crazy fans there. They are dedicated. I like the way the fans are. They show you mad love."

Morris will return to Tuscaloosa this summer for camp. He has strong interest in the Tide especially knowing a couple of former teammates already on the roster.

"I have a player who used to go to my school goes there [Brandon Ivory]," he said. "One of my other former players, Brandon Hill, is going there. I feel like I will have a good bond with all the coaches."

Morris has reeled in several offers including Arkansas State, Clemson, Memphis, Tennessee, Purdue, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and Mississippi State. Several other schools showing heavy interest include Alabama, Oklahoma, Ohio State, USC and North Carolina.

Morris has a current list of favorites in order: UCLA, Alabama, Mississippi State, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Vanderbilt. He hopes to attend several camps this summer including Alabama, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Miami and possibly UCLA.

Morris discussed his high interest in the Bruins.

"I kind of want to go to a California school," he said. "I like the way they run. I like their running game. I like how they can produce linemen."
