High majors track Morgan early

Dwayne Morgan emerged as a prospect last fall. Now a handful of high major programs are showing interest in the sophomore, who is rated as a top 10 wing prospect in his class.

After a strong sophomore season at Baltimore (Md.) City College, Dwayne Morgan, a 2014 prospect, is becoming a popular recruit.

Morgan's travel team coach – Dwayne Wise – says high major programs are beginning to prioritize him because of his energy, skill level and versatility on the court.

"He has a motor," Wise told Scout.com. "His work ethic is unreal. He'll work out with us after practice. He's one of those kind of kids. He's a legitimate prospect."

"The thing that I like about him is he's not only a great kid, but he has grades and his work ethic is off the chart," Wise added.

Last week South Florida offered him a scholarship, while North Carolina State put in a call and made sure it was known they were interested.

"He loves UNC," Wise said. "He loves Texas. He loves Maryland and UNLV."

"He's updated his list," the Baltimore Finest coach said. "UNC, Texas, UNLV and University of Maryland. That's his early list.

To go with playing with Baltimore's Finest during the upcoming evaluation period (Pitt Jam Fest & Philly Jam Fest), Morgan will participate in the USA Basketball U17 trails in mid-June.
