There aren’t many 15-year olds in the world like Micah Morris‍.

The big 6-foot-5 320-pounder actually turned 16 on Sunday, but he was still 15 when he dominated West Forsyth last Friday in Camden County’s season opener. Although he’s still just a kid, Morris proved why he’s one of the highest-ranked 2021 prospects in the country.

Morris holds offers from major programs across the nation, and Dawg Post caught up with him Friday night to talk about his recruitment and where things stand.

“I visited Auburn, Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia, Ole Miss and Florida this summer,” Morris said.  “I was at Georgia twice. I went to a camp and then went back a little later on the 27th. The camp was great. Coach Pittman taught me some technique on my footwork, making sure I’m staying in front of the defender and stuff like that. Coach Pittman is great. We stay in contact and he’ll reach out to coach Sphire when he has something to tell me and let me know things.”

It’s not just offensive line coach Sam Pittman that stands out about the Georgia program. The Kingsland, Georgia native admitted that he really enjoys the people and the overall atmosphere in Athens.

“The people around Georgia really stand out,” Morris said.  “The coaches are very chill. They’re not going to be down your throat the entire time. If you do well they’re going to congratulate you and when you do bad they’ll let you know and you’ll fix it.”

Morris, like many other top Bulldog targets, made it back to Athens in late July where the Georgia staff hosted some of the nation’s top prospects. What started off as a small water gun competition turned into something much bigger than what Morris was anticipating.

“It started off with a little water gun competition where we had to knock off some cups,” Morris said. Then we had a relay race. Then everyone just started throwing water all over the place. I had an entire bucket dumped on me towards the end.  I spent a lot of time with Amarius Mims and Sedrick Van Pran. We didn’t talk much about recruiting and just tried to get to know each other. The big thing for me is to get to know as many people as I can. Later down the road we can still be friends even if we don’t go to the same college. It’s about building relationships. The older you get, the more people you know, the easier life will be for you.”

Morris dropped his top 10 on his birthday last Sunday but admitted that he does not have a current leader or any major favorites at this time.

“Every SEC school that has offered me is pushing hard,” Morris said. “Ohio State is pushing hard as well.”

So what is Morris looking for in a school?

“Relationships with the coaches means a lot,” Morris said. “I’m looking at how each coach can develop me. I’m looking for a school that keeps showing me interest and shows me everything I need to see. Get me to fall in love. Basically, my decision will be where ever I feel comfortable at.”

Morris also confirmed that he plans to visit Georgia when the Bulldogs host Notre Dame in late September and plans to make his commitment on his fathers birthday, December 17th.

Morris is ranked as the No.6 offensive tackle and the No.36 overall prospect in the 2021 class. According to Dawg Post, Morris is the No.3 prospect in Georgia in the 2021 class.
