Beaverton, Oregon receiver Jordan Morgan (Southridge HS) is getting significant interest and is expecting offers any day from a pair of Pac 12 schools. Falcons Report spoke with Morgan about his interest in Air Force and other schools.
"I work hard and play as a teammate; it's never about me, it always about the team," said Beaverton, Ore., wide receiver Jordan Morgan. That might sound like a prospect speak but when you ask Jordan how many receptions he had in 2012 he'll tell you he didn't keep track of them because it's all about his team, not him. That's just the type of player the United States Air Force Academy or any team is looking for. For what it's worth, the physical receiver with good speed did score 15 touchdowns during the last season.
Air Force and Morgan's interest in each other is still in the early stages. Morgan has received several questionnaires from the academy which he has completed and returned. Asked if he was interested in Air Force, Morgan replied that he was interested and he had family members that had served in the military.
Pressed further about Air Force and asked if he would be willing to be a receiver in an option offense that mostly runs the ball, Morgan, who already has two offers, gave an interesting reply.
"Blocking is probably just as fun as scoring a touchdown," said Morgan. "When you crack somebody, that's the best feeling in the world!"
Morgan, who says his best forty time is 4.47 (hand timed), has also been hearing from the Air Force track program. However, the senior-to-be says because he has gained some weight his forty time was recently still not too shabby 4.51.
Multiple other football programs like what they see in Morgan, who earned All-Metro honors at Southridge last season.
Morgan says that Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon State, Washington, Portland State, California, Oklahoma State and Wisconsin are recruiting him the hardest. Portland State and San Jose State have already offered. The 6-foot-2 receiver claims that distance will not be a factor in his school choice.
Morgan believes that Arizona and Arizona State are close to offering. Arizona is discussing his film as a staff tomorrow (Monday). Arizona State is coming to watch him run in a track meet. They are sending the recruiting coordinator and receiver coach to see how he runs. His ASU recruiting coach likes his hands, routes and effort. Morgan has already visited both programs.
Morgan will visit Oregon State for the Beaver's spring game. Oregon wants him to come down and visit with his coaches. BYU also wants him to visit.
Morgan believes Southridge will win the state championship this season.
"My teammates, they pressure so much, says Morgan. "If you mess up they are like dogging you, everybody will chew you out. They'll get you back on your horse. There is no holding back at our practices. That's why we are going to win state this year."
