"Derek's been to Ohio State and Georgia," five star offensive tackle Derek Morris' father Derek Sr. said. "He has Tennessee Jan. 12 and Florida Jan. 18."
"There are so many schools he's looking at for his fifth visit. Minnesota, North Carolina, Georgia Tech, North Carolina State, those are some of them."
"But to be honest with you, I think it's going to either be the Big Ten or SEC for Derek."
"He's high on Ohio State, Tennessee, and Georgia. Those are his top choices. He's really high on Ohio State and Tennessee."
"We're leaving on Monday for Tampa. We're going to the Outback Bowl."
"And were going up to Ohio State again in January. My wife and me and Derek are going up there again to check out the real estate, to see what it's like. We want to get some last minute things in order."
"We want to hit Tennessee and Georgia one more time too before signing day."
The 6-foot-6 and 350 pound Morris led Huntersville (N.C.) North Mecklenburg to a 7-4 record.
