Kirby Smart has done it again. The head coach of the Georgia Bulldogs has a knack for recruiting the best in-state players to join his squad, and offensive tackle Micah Morris is the latest example.

Morris, a four-star tackle who excelled at Camden County High School, decided to move from Kingsland to Athens to play for the Dawgs this fall.

The state of Georgia is a hotbed of talent, and once again, fans have to like what Smart has done with his team’s 2021 recruiting class.

Despite the Bulldogs having the leg up in the recruiting race, Micah Morris fielded offers from programs across the country.

Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, LSU, Miami, Minnesota, Mississippi State, NC State, North Carolina, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and West Virginia reached out and offered the 330-pound offensive lineman a scholarship.

Thankfully for Smart and his coaching staff, this pairing was meant to be.

He’ll join fellow stud Amarius Mims in the Dawgs’ 2021 class. Both have the potential to become All-Americans quickly.

Georgia football recruiting has gotten better and better over the last few seasons. It’s always hard to compete in the SEC, but on paper, this team has a good of a shot as any other in the conference heading into next season.

Micah Morris Highlights 

Micah Morris has been widely known in scouting circles for years and first gained attention as a sophomore playing high school football.
