Michigan State after UCLA commitment

8/29/2012

Perhaps for fun or more college interest, UCLA commitment Christian Morris is adding another position to his repertoire.

The three-star offensive tackle told ESPN on Wednesday that he has been named the starting defensive end at Memphis (Tenn.) East. Whether the new position is a good fit for the 6-foot-6, 293-pound prospect remains to be seen. Nevertheless, Morris has already impressed recruiters enough to garner scholarship offers from over a dozen schools.

Morris committed to UCLA in July. He told ESPN that he thought playing two positions could help his college recruiting.

“More scholarship offers and it's fun,” he stated via text message.

Morris said said Michigan State has started to show interest recently.
