Offensive guard Micah Morris is simply one of the largest human beings ever to be encountered on a high-school football field. The Camden County, Ga., native is 6-foot-6, 335 pounds, and the scariest part about it is he's the youngest member of Georgia's 2021 signing class at only 17 years old. 

He's already on campus, and has had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder. Morris will likely miss spring practice, but he has an entire summer conditioning program to get his shoulder right and be ready for fall camp in August. 

Morris is the type of player that Matt Luke and the Georgia offensive staff are looking for along the offensive line in the future: Massive individuals with extreme athleticism at their size and positional versatility. Morris played tackle throughout his high-school career, and based on conversations we have had with him, he is expected to begin his college career at the guard position. 

Here's what SI All-American had to say about Morris:

Frame: Road-grading guard physique. Still carrying some baby weight that could come off quickly. Thick lower half.

Athleticism: North and south athlete, though has shown plus-movement patterns when asked to pull and play in space in high school. Plays high, but that seems to be because he can get away with it more than he’s limited in terms of a bend. Powerful upper body. When he strikes, opponents move.

Instincts: His main instinct is to take an opponent's breath away with his punch. Understands how to shrink the space between himself and a second-level defender. Digs defenders out well, and understands hat placement. Aspiring criminal justice major and straight-A student.

Polish: Pass set will certainly need work, but on Day 1 at the next level he will be able to dig 3-techs out and few high schoolers can say that. There's so much raw power and strength that he hasn’t needed much more than that at this point. Started since his freshman year in 7A south Georgia football.

Bottom Line: Morris is a guard prospect that has a shot at early playing time if he can get his pass sets cleaned up, and he appears to be more than coachable. The freshman to junior jump on tape proves as much. Will terrorize linebackers when climbing up and can skip-pull for modern counter offenses. All-SEC guard in his future if placed in the proper hands.
