Two on top for Morris

Just three days after playing the final football game for his high school program, running back George Morris of Lawrenceville (Ga.) Central Gwinnett landed another BCS-conference offer.
This one came Monday from Utah, according to his coach.
It is too early to tell if the Utes can work their way into the mix for the 6-feet-1, 190-pounder, who told Rivals.com that for now, two teams stand out.
"Pretty much Florida International and Syracuse are my top two," Morris said. "I like the connection I have with both coaching staffs. We talk like every other week. I think they're both pretty good programs right now. The coaches have done a good job with FIU. [With Syracuse] I like the way they do different things with their players and the different formations they use."
Morris will official to FIU this weekend. He plans to take an official to Syracuse in early December. He has never been to either school.
East Carolina also is getting an official from Morris. That will take place Nov. 18.
"Those are the only ones I know for sure right now," Morris said.
According to Morris, schools such as Indiana, Memphis, Purdue, South Alabama, Vanderbilt and Western Kentucky are still being considered.
Morris finished the 2011 season with over 1,100 rushing yards in 10 games. He ran for 710 yards as a junior.
"I'm better now," Morris said. "I'm hitting the hole quicker and I'm more aware of things."
