Pirate Prospects: Tony Morgan

Defensive back Tony Morgan is close to reaching a decision. Here's your chance to catch the Garner (NC) HS star in action!

Name: Tony Morgan
Hometown: Garner, North Carolina
High School: Garner High School
Position: Defensive Back
Vitals: 6'0/195/4.5

Notes: Morgan racked up 83 tackles, five tackles for loss, and three interceptions as a junior last season.

With offers on the table from North Carolina, South Carolina, Clemson, Colorado, and East Carolina, Morgan is a hot commodity. Currently South Carolina is his leader, but East Carolina is certainly under contention.

"I went up to their camp and I liked it a lot," said Morgan. "I really liked the coaches at East Carolina, and I think it's a good school."

Morgan has a reputation for speed and he backed that up with tremendous showings at a couple of combines this spring- consistently being timed in the 4.4-second range. He has a great frame and will likely project as a safety on the next level.

Morgan is still raw as a defensive back but all the tools are there for him to emerge as a solid collegiate player down the road. Grades are somewhat of an issue.
