Last season Georgia State was able to bring in two solid players by way of transfer to bolster their secondary. However, with both of those players being upperclassmen already, Georgia State really needed to target athletes for the secondary in this recruiting cycle. Currently they now have four prospects that project to play defensive back.
Myles Morris, from Ben L Smith HS in Greensboro, NC, became one of those prospects last week. We got the opportunity to talk to Morris about his recruitment and what he brings to the Panthers. A two way athlete in HS, Morris told us that he plans to contribute early and often for his new team.
“I am going to come in and compete at corner,” Morris said. “But I will work hard and play on the punt and kick return teams, and next year I am going to have the opportunity to go both ways. I would love to do that.”
Morris chose the Panthers over offers from Tennessee Tech, Appalachian State, and Hampton.
“Tennessee Tech didn’t offer that (going both ways),” Myles continued. “So I decided to go to Georgia State. And they play in the Georgia Dome, which is a big plus.”
While Morris is excited about the opportunity to see the field on offense, he admits that defense is where is heart is.
“I love defense,” Myles stated. “I like getting a pick six the most. That’s just a big momentum changer and one of the hardest things to do.”
Myles will be signing his letter of intent at about 11:30 on signing day.
