Tennessee desperately needs help along the offensive line moving forward. And they got some good news about potentially addressing that need on Tuesday from one of the top offensive tackles in the 2019 recruiting class.
Wanya Morris, an elite offensive tackle from Loganville, Georgia, tweeted out his top two schools on Tuesday, and the Vols made the cut along with Auburn.

Morris is just one of the many talented players who plays for Grayson High School in Loganville. He and several of his teammates have visited Tennessee’s campus multiple times, and Morris most recently attended Tennessee’s Junior Day festivities this past weekend.
According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Morris is the No. 40 overall player in the 2019 class and is the No. 6 offensive tackle. The 6-foot-5, 300 pound prospect holds offers from Clemson, Auburn, Georgia, Florida State, Florida, LSU, Michigan, Texas A&M, and others.
Morris was once committed to Florida State, but he decommitted from them in late November of last year. Jeremy Pruitt sent out an offer to him not even a week after accepting the job as Tennessee’s head coach, and his visited the Vols twice since then.
Morris is a big wall of an offensive lineman who can actually move fairly well for his immense size. He doesn’t get pushed around by opposing defensive linemen, and he has a powerful upper body. His footwork will likely need some work, but the intangibles are there for Morris.
The Vols will have a very young and relatively inexperienced offensive line in 2018. They’ll be more experienced in 2019, but they’ll still be lacking star power and pure talent. Someone like Morris would be a huge addition to Tennessee’s 2019 recruiting class.
