U-M's draft success intrigues FSU commit, Wanya Morris

Loganville (Ga.) Grayson 2019 offensive tackle and Florida State commit, Wanya Morris discusses his Michigan offer, Jim Harbaugh's impressive track record getting players to the NFL and more.

Wanya Morris is considered one of the top offensive line prospects in the 2019 class. The four-star recruit committed to Florida State earlier this spring, but that hasn’t stopped others from offering including the Wolverines, which was one he didn’t see coming.

“I was notified by my coach and I was surprised,” Morris told The Michigan Insider.

After picking up the offer, the 6-foot-4, 253-pound Morris plans on learning more about the Wolverines and getting to Ann Arbor is now on his list to do.

“Yeah, (I plan on visiting), but I don’t know when yet honestly,” said Morris. “I don’t know much about Michigan, but whenever I can get up there, I hope to leave with a lot of knowledge.”

Moving forward, the talented Peach State lineman will look to do more research about Michigan, but one aspect that he is already very aware of is Jim Harbaugh’s successful track record, which includes getting his players to the next level.

The Maize and Blue had 11 players get drafted in the 2017 NFL draft, the most out of any college, which attracts Morris about the Wolverines by having the same goal himself.

“I think he’s a great coach and regardless where he is, he is going to take his team somewhere far,” said Morris. “Well, of course, that’s important (on Michigan having most players drafted) because he knows what it takes to get them there and it’s my dream to be drafted.”
