GRAMBLING, Louisiana -- The rich get richer at Grambling.
Almost a year after landing a high profile recruit from Ole Miss, Grambling's football program went back to the Southeastern Conference well to secure a commitment from a former four-star recruit when offensive tackle Christian Morris announced Monday on Twitter he is committed to Grambling.
Morris is the former teammate of quarterback DeVante Kincade, who transferred from Ole Miss to Grambling last year. Kincade was recently named the 2016 Southwestern Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year, and he helped Grambling win an HBCU national championship over the weekend.
"DeVante played a huge factor in my decision making and as well as winning the SWAC championship," Morris told The News-Star on Monday night. "That really just blew my mind over and made me want to come to Grambling."
Grambling's win Saturday in the Celebration Bowl sealed the deal for Morris, who will report to Grambling upon graduating from Ole Miss in May. He has two years of eligibility remaining.
