John Morgan, a Penn State target, made his second trip to campus in less than a month, and it felt as comfortable as usual.

The added bonus for the Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha standout is he got to see a spring practice, and spend time with the coaching staff.

He made the trip with teammate and cornerback Judson Tallandier, but it was not a full-day visit. They were at Pittsburgh on Tuesday, and they will be at Rutgers on Thursday, so there was plenty of travel time. But getting back to State College, Pa., was important for Morgan.

"There was nothing too different just because of time restraints," the 6-foot-2, 245-pound Morgan said. "I actually got to sit in on a team meeting and the defensive line position meeting, which was a great experience."

Morgan met with defensive line coach Sean Spencer and coach James Franklin, and both re-iterated their desires to land him.

"It was pretty much the same," Morgan said. "It was just stressing how much they want me and that I would be a great asset to there team in the future."

When Morgan made a trip to Penn State in February for a personal junior day, he toured the campus and received the academics presentations.

Since spring practice is underway and Morgan went through the other things, this trip was more about seeing a different aspect of the football program and bonding with the coaches.

However, the day did provide a big takeaway for Morgan.

"Just the atmosphere there is impeccable," he said. "It is school that no matter what, they are going to compete, as units on offense and defense, and then as a team. They have outstanding effort, and effort is one thing that you can't coach. So for them to give it without being told, was amazing."
