Morris Favors Orange

WR/S Phillip Morris
6-4, 190, 4.43
Timmonsville High School
Timmonsville, South Carolina

Timmonsville's star athlete Phillip Morris has impressed the college recruiters with his versatility during his senior season as he has played all of the offensive skill positions. We've got all the details on who the prize recruit favors as he gets closer to deciding where he will play next season.

The 6-4, 190 pound prospect has offers from Clemson and South Carolina, with Tennessee and Virginia both showing significant interest. Morris is not ready to go on record with a leader, but he does believe he will be wearing orange next season.

"Clemson and Tennessee are my favorites right now," stated Morris.

The talented athlete started his senior season at quarterback but has now moved to running back and wide receiver. Morris ran for 1 touchdown and caught passes for 2 touchdowns this week for Timmonsville High School. The speedster prefers to play receiver. Tennessee is recruiting Morris as a wide receiver and Clemson is recruiting Morris as a receiver and a defensive back.

Morris plans to see the Tigers play when they return to Death Valley for their next home game. "I want to go see them when they come back home. I will probably come to the Virginia game."

Coach Burns is following the senior season of Morris very closely and letting the star athlete know that Clemson wants to see him running down the hill next season.

"Coach Burns called a few days ago. He just wanted to know how my game went and how did I do. He wanted to know when I would come see them play. He came by earlier this season to see me play."

Morris is not sure when he will make a commitment. "I really don't know. When it's time to decide I will know."
