The UAB Blazers notched another solid 2013 prospect from Alpharetta (Ga.) High on Friday morning.
"Just committed to the University of Alabama-Birmingham!!!!!! #uab #blazers," Rodney Morris shared via Twitter.
He joins fellow Alpharetta Raider senior D'Vonn Isaac, a two-way lineman, on the Blazers' commitment list in this cycle and playing with his 2012 teammate at the next level is simply "very cool."
"It's a great environment," said Morris on why he chose UAB. "Also a good coaching staff and an up-and-coming program.
"It's also really close to home and my family can come see me play."
The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder is very versatile on the field, and was getting looks from several programs at different positions, but he will sign with the Blazers as a wide receiver come Wednesday.
"It's looking that way," he added.
With that, Morris has set the bar high for his freshman campaign.
"I think there's a good shot if I go in there and work really hard," he said of playing early. "I plan on trying to make freshman All-American team for the conference.
"Also breaking the starting lineup as a freshman."
