Michigan keeps adding to its defensive line class, this time in the form of four-star defensive end Mike Morris. Morris was flipped from Florida State, where he had been committed since February of 2016!

The reason he has been committed to the Seminoles for so long is because he’s a legacy. His father, also named Mike Morris, was an offensive lineman for Florida State in the ‘90s.
However, it seemed like the FSU coaching staff wanted the younger Morris to follow in his father’s footsteps and switch him to the offensive side of the ball. Morris resisted and started looking elsewhere.
He connected with the Michigan staff and visited for the BBQ at the Big House in July. After that, several crystal balls for Michigan rolled in.
Following his official visit to Ann Arbor this past weekend, he decided Michigan would be the place.
The 6-foot-5, 255-pounder is ranked 322nd in the country per the 247Sports composite, and the 22nd-best strong-side defensive end.
