George Morris, a running back from Central Gwinnett High School, committed to Syracuse on Wednesday.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder said he picked Syracuse over offers from Vanderbilt, Illinois, Utah, Purdue, Indiana, Florida International and East Carolina, among others. Morris did not have much contact with UGA or Georgia Tech.
“George just committed to Syracuse,” Central Gwinnett coach Todd Wofford told the AJC. “He said he just likes them playing in the ACC and that they have recruited him the hardest.”
This past season, Morris had 145 carries for 1,045 yards and 17 touchdowns, while catching 36 passes for 395 yards for Central Gwinnett, which plays in Georgia’s largest classification for high school football.
Syracuse has one other Georgia player in its 2012 recruiting class – Stephenson tight end Joshua Parris.
