Florida has officially entered the sweepstakes for one of Georgia’s top college prospects. The Gators offered an early scholarship to Miller Grove High forward Brandon Morris, one of the state’s top juniors.
The 6-foot-7, 200-pounder has nearly 10 offers, including UGA, Clemson, Auburn, Florida State and North Carolina State. Morris says he has not had much contact with Georgia Tech.
“I was really surprised and happy about the Florida offer,” Morris said. “I really like the Gators a lot … their style of play. It brightened up my day when my coach told me about that.”
