Talented 2019 Safety Jamal Morris Recaps USC Visit

Jamal Morris, a promising 2019 safety from the Houston area, recapped his visit this past weekend to USC.

Jamal Morris, an emerging 2019 safety from Fort Bend (Texas) Bush High School, checked out USC this past weekend while his Team Texas Elite 7-on-7 squad competed in Southern California.

The 6-foot-2, 174-pound Morris already got his first FBS offer from SMU and more programs have shown interest.

Morris said the tradition stood out during his visit to USC. He emphasized the rivalries with Notre Dame and UCLA, pinpointing the "Jeweled Shillelagh" trophy for the Trojans' history with the Irish.

"They have multiple national championships," Morris said, "and a good winning history."


Morris said he spent most of his time with high school relations coordinator Gavin Morris and assistant personnel director Eric Ziskin. He also had a brief meeting with head coach Clay Helton.

"'Your recruiting with us will definitely pick up this spring and next season,'" Morris said the coaches told him. "The head coach said, 'You're a good-looking young man. Big, long body.' They like my frame and that I can cover ground."

Morris said his next visits will go to in-state programs.

"I'm going to visit Houston for sure," Morris said, "and working on Texas Tech."

Despite being in the spring of his sophomore year, Morris already has two varsity seasons of Texas Class 6A football under his belt. He debuted as a freshman in 2015, when he recorded 39 tackles, 9 1/2 tackles for loss, 4 1/2 sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one pass breakup.

This past fall, Morris registered 43 tackles, three tackles for loss, one sack, one interception, two forced fumbles, and six pass breakups.
