D.J. Morgan, from Woodland Hills (Cali.) William Howard Taft High School stands 5-11, 170-pounds with blistering speed. Morgan ended the 2007 season with more than 1,100 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns on 173 carries and added 19 receptions for 230 yards and three more scores.
"I would fit well into Florida's spread offense," he said. "I can run the ball in any offense."
Morgan has early interest in USC, California, Oregon, UCLA, Oregon and Florida. It will be interesting to see how things progress between Morgan and the Florida staff with more than a few good looking running backs within the state of Florida this year.
Morgan averaged more 24 yards per punt return and more than 26 per kick return and seems to be one of those types of players that would flourish in what the coaching staff likes to do.
With any player that is a great distance from the University of Florida, the key is to determine if the player has genuine interest, which in this case he seems to have. Morgan will certainly be one to watch for the class of 2010.
