Texas Tight End Takes In Tiger Camp

Christian Morgan, an interesting prospect for the class of 2013, talks about his visit to an Auburn football camp.

Plano, Tex.--Christian Morgan is excited about making a position change as he prepares for his junior season.

The 6-4, 240-pound prospect from Prestonwood Christian participated in an Auburn football camp this week and worked out as a tight end.

"I played left tackle and defensive end, out of need, my first two years in high school," he explains. "I feel like ideally I fit at the tight spot so I believe that is where I will eventually end up. I believe this year I will definitely be playing that.

"It is kind of an H-back, hybrid type thing that our coaches actually came to Auburn to learn," Morgan says of his new position.

He took advantage of his trip to Auburn to get individual instruction in playing the position, which is a key part of the Tigers' offense. "We did some position drills, seven on seven drills and one on one drills," Morgan says. "It was a lot of fun and I learned a bit, too, so it was good."

Morgan is looking forward to showing his receiving skills this fall. "We have a good quarterback," he notes. "It is funny because he could play college ball if he wanted to, but he doesn't want to do it. I know Texas A&M has been up there a few times and they like him. He is good."

Commenting on his camp trip to Auburn, Morgan says, "It was fun. I liked it. I like the coaching staff and it is a great town. It has a down home feel to it. I have been to some of the Big 12 schools. Auburn was definitely different and I enjoyed it."

Next on the agenda is a visit to a Big 12 program. "I am going to be at Texas on Sunday," he says. "I was supposed to go to Oklahoma State, but I don't think I am going to go up there. I was at OU (Oklahoma) last weekend. I have been out to Baylor once and I think I will try to go back there again this summer. I might try to make it out to Texas A&M."

An honor student at Prestonwood Christian, he also plays power forward in basketball, but football is his main focus. "In basketball I just try to defend and rebound," he says.

A standout at a recent Under Armour Combine in Texas, Morgan notes he enjoyed his first visit to Auburn. "It was great. I like the people--they're awesome. I like the coaching staff. They are like a big family. There are no egos or anything like that."
