Former Tiger Lands at West Georgia

Former Clemson Whip LB Kelvin Morris has decided to end his college career at Division II West Georgia College. Morris missed last season at Clemson after he suffered a torn ACL in the spring of 2003.

The story was first reported today by GoUpstate.com.

Morris will redshirt this season at West Georgia and then use his final year of eligibility in 2005.

Morris missed last season at Clemson after he suffered a torn ACL in the spring of 2003. The WHIP linebacker from Timmonsville, SC was deemed "not eligible" to compete for the Tigers this season and had planned to transfer to a non-Division I school.

During the 2002 season he played in all 13 games and started one game, the Tangerine Bowl game against Texas Tech. The 6-4 220-pounder finished the 2002 season with 44 tackles, including a career high 13 tackles against Texas Tech.

He had three tackles for loss, a sack and an interception during the 2002 season when he played 372 plays in the 13 games. He played the 2000 and 2001 seasons at Southwest Mississippi Junior College and had 71 tackles and nine sacks in 2001, a year in which he was named a JUCO All-American.

Interestingly enough, Kelvin's younger brother, WR Phillip Morris, signed with the Tigers in the 2004 class. The younger Morris will also attend junior college before enrolling at Clemson in two years.
