Two schools jump in Morgan's recruitment

Dwayne Morgan has picked up new interest from two schools, plus rescheduled his visit to UNLV for early February.

In late October, Dwayne Morgan, a 2014 prospect, cut his list of schools to six. Now it appears the 6-foot-7 five-star forward is open to talking to a few new schools.

"All of the schools that are recruiting him, he really likes the coaching staff," Morgan's travel team coach Dwayne Wise told

"He's definitely crazy about [Turgeon] for coming to his games," Wise added. "He's crazy about coach [Tom] Crean and he's crazy about coach [Dave] Rice from talking to him a lot. Definitely those three. Also Missouri, coach [Frank] Haith has really, really recruited him. Then you have South Florid and Seton Hall."

Morgan's list of six -- Maryland, Indiana, UNLV, Missouri, South Florida and Seton Hall – may be extending to eight, as Georgetown and Arizona are starting to make a move for the Baltimore (Md.) St. Frances Academy standout.

"It's amazing that Georgetown and Arizona have gotten involved," Wise said. "Georgetown has been a lot of his games. He was impressed with Georgetown being there. Even though he was down to six, he's going to take that into consideration."

Wise said Morgan has watched the Hoyas some recently and he's been impressed with how they are using Otto Porter.

"He took another look," he said. "He watched them when they played against Indiana and he saw some freedom in the offense. With Otto having some success there, I think he likes the system."

Arizona reached out to Morgan recently and is expected to dispatch an assistant to see him play in the near future.

"Arizona called the other day and they expressed that they really like him and they want to get involved and they wanted to know how far things were going," Wise added.

Originally, Morgan was going to take his first visit this coming weekend, but due to a schedule conflict, Morgan pushed back his visit to UNLV until February 9th when the Runnin' Rebels play New Mexico.

"In terms of officials UNLV, Indiana and Missouri are scheduled for officials," Wise told "Those are the definite three that I'm aware of."

"They are gong to the Montverde Invitational which is in Florida and I know his high school coach is going to drive him over to South Florida," he added. "I think his mom is going to drive down there. That'll be an unofficial since he's already down there."

Morgan is regarded as the No. 3 small forward and the No. 12 overall prospect in the 2014 class.
