"It Goes Like That Sometimes"

The 6-4, 190 pound speedster has not added any offers over the past few weeks, but Tennessee appears to be showing more interest. "Tennessee is coming on strong. They have not offered yet. I need to go down for a visit."

"Right now, I really don't have a leader. Clemson is still pretty high, but I really don't have a leader. South Carolina and Virginia are up there, and I was really impressed with how Tennessee played Saturday."

The talented athlete did not make it to Clemson Saturday but he did catch the game on television. "Yeah I watched it. I don't even know what to say about that one. They moved the ball well at times. They just couldn't get it in the endzone. They just made a lot of mistakes. It goes like that sometimes."

Phillip's older brother Kelvin is not eligible to play with the Tigers this season, but he is working hard so he will be ready for his final season. "He's doing real well. The coaches called and said he's doing well. He says it's hard but he's got to do it."

Morris, who has moved to quarterback for his senior season, had a good game Friday night. "I scored twice. I had a 97 yard kickoff return, and I also ran for another touchdown. We're doing all right but the 4th quarter is hurting us. We drop off in the 4th quarter."

We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding athlete from South Carolina, right up through signing day 2004.
