Memphis (Tenn.) East Offensive Tackle Christian Morris still considers himself a UCLA commit, but a new team is making a push for the No. 126 player in the country.
"I'm still committed to UCLA but I do have a little interest in Nebraska," the four-star Morris said. "They've been talking to me a lot."
Morris likes what he's heard from the Huskers coaching staff enough to schedule an official visit, for the school's game against Wisconsin on Sept. 29. Morris will take his official visit to UCLA when the Bruins host USC on Nov. 17.
While the Huskers have picked up their recruitment of the 6-foot-6, 293-pound Morris, he's also getting daily pressure from his high school teammates.
Three-star linebacker Marcus Robinson, an Arkansas commit, is pressuring him to check out the 'Hawgs, while fellow lineman Herbert Moore, an Ole Miss commit, wants him to visit Oxford.
"It's going both ways right now," Morris said. "I'm trying to get Bobby (three-star OC Bobby Billingsley) to check out UCLA and Herb and Marcus are recruiting the mess out of me right now."
The pressure Robinson seems to be paying off, with Morris planning an unofficial visit for the Razorbacks game against Alabama on Sept. 15.
"They really want me to come down so I'm going to take a look," Morris said.
Morris said he expects to hear from even more schools, once his senior season is complete. For the first time in his career, Morris is playing both ways, starting at tackle on offense and defensive end on defense.
"I believe after the season more schools are going to come in," he said. "I'm playing defensive end now and it's going good."
Morris added that he's quickly found his comfort level on defense, and if he's asked, he's open to playing defensive end at the next level.
"I actually think I can play there in college," Morris said. "I'm really going to go for left tackle but if something goes wrong or that's where they need me I can go either side of the ball."
