Schools coming in for Morgan

Dwayne Morgan has added some new offers and continues to show why he is one of the best prospects in the country.

Five-star forward Dwayne Morgan first broke out at the Elite 75 Showcase in 2011. He returned in 2012 and showed once again why he is one of the best prospects in the country. After a strong summer with Baltimore's Finest, Morgan now has numerous schools coming in to see him play, and offers continue to add up.

Over the summer Morgan proved the caliber of talent that he is by helping Baltimore's Finest to some high level finishes. At 6-foot-7 his athleticism and ability to handle the ball are impressive, and he feels he proved his worth.

"It think it went good," said Morgan of his play. "I was real focused this summer. I wanted to show everybody that I could play. I went out and played my hardest, and it was real good."

Everyone first noticed Morgan at the Elite 75 a year ago, and since then he says it has been a whirlwind.

"It has been crazy," Morgan explained. "Back in my hometown people knew I could play, but nobody knew me. Now every time I play in Baltimore I have to show what I have. Events like this, it is just fun to come back and see where it started."

When it comes to recruiting, numerous schools are making him a high priority.

"I got offered by Indiana after they saw me," said Morgan. "Also UNLV has been by, Maryland, Seton Hall, Texas, and a couple of other schools."

The offer from Indiana was a big one for Morgan. He says he wants to visit the school and has been impressed with the program.

"It was big time," Morgan said of the IU offer. "They are pre-season No. 1, and they are a big school. It was a great honor to see Tom Crean and get an offer."

Also the Maryland Terrapins have put in a ton of work on the Baltimore product, and Morgan likes the idea of being able to play close to home.

"It is my hometown school," said Morgan of the Terps. "It feels good to hear from them. Who wouldn't want to stay home and represent for your hometown. I am still open, but it is great to know I have that as an option."

Another school with a connection to Morgan is UNLV. Even though it is far from home the Rebels have had success recruiting the city in the past and continue to make a strong move with Morgan.

"I have a connection to them with my good friend Daquan Cook," Morgan explained. "Also I have a good relationship with the coaches. They really understand how I play and it could be a good fit."

Another school Morgan wants to visit is Texas, and the reason is simple.

"Kevin Durant," Morgan said with a smile. "He is one of my favorite players. He went there and I saw what they did with him. I think there is some potential there."

For now things remain wide open for the No. 14 prospect in the 2014 class and he has no timeframe for a decision.
