Top 50 prospect Wanya Morris commits to Tennessee over Auburn
If Tennessee is going to make strides under Jeremy Pruitt, the movement is going to have to start in the trenches. The Volunteers just took a huge step in the right direction in that regard as four-star offensive tackle Wanya Morris has just pledged his commitment to Tennessee.
Morris was among the four Grayson High School standout players to announce their college decisions during an announcement ceremony on campus Tuesday evening. The hulking offensive lineman was joined by linebackers Owen Pappoe and Kevin Harris, and safety Kenyatta Watson in making their public commitments.
The 6-foot-6, 293-pound Peach State native is rated as the No. 7 offensive tackle in the nation and the No. 46 overall prospect according to his 247Sports Composite Rankings. His other finalist was Auburn but Morris also held scholarship offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Texas A&M, Clemson, Florida State, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Virginia Tech among others.
Morris was among the first prospects Tennessee ever hosted in the spring for an official visit, he took his official visit to Rocky Top for the Orange & White spring game, and will soon be participating in Nike’s The Opening Finals in Arlington, Texas.
Tennessee now has five commitments lined up for the 2019 recruiting cycle, with Morris being the highest-rated prospect of the group. He becomes the second offensive linemen to jump in the Orange boat, as four-star in-state prospect Jackson Lampley is already committed to Tennessee.
