KSR has learned that the Wildcats have received a commitment from Pasadena City College running back Josh Morgan. KSR Spoke with Morgan about his commitment to the Wildcats.

What appeared to be a thin position for the Wildcats is now beginning to beef up after as signing day approaches. Josh Morgan of Pasadena City College has decided to make his commitment to Kentucky. "Yes sir, I'm verbally committed," said Morgan. "I'm pretty sure I'll sign with Kentucky."

So what should the Wildcat fans expect to see from him on the field? "I'm a balanced running back. I can run between the tackles. I can take a pounding. I averaged 22 carries a game this year. I can get away from tacklers in the open field and I can run well between the tackles," said Morgan.

"I want to get faster. I want to be able to break away even more," said Morgan. Josh, at 5-foot-10, 210-pounds already possesses 4.4 (forty) speed. He put that speed to good use this season.

He carried the ball 152 times for 1100 yards and eight touchdowns in 11 games. "(This season) was alright. It could have gone better. We were 7-4. Individually I did okay. I got second team all conference and I was offensive MVP on our team," said Morgan.

There was an unexpected twist that Morgan experienced during his time at PCC. "I was a defensive player last year. I was a safety," said Morgan. "I swapped over to running back when some other guy got into trouble. This season was great. I didn't know I was gonna be recruited as a running back," he said.

"My blocking got better through the season. My tackle breaking skill got better too."

Kentucky had two competitors for Morgan's services. "Washington and Arizona State were also recruiting me," said Morgan.

Josh made his official visit to Kentucky on the weekend of January 15th. "I loved it. The academic support was great. There should be no way that a student shouldn't do well with all the people there to help," he said. "The facilities were great; the whole town was supportive to the program," said Morgan.

So where does he fit into the Wildcats' future plans? "They didn't say I would start. But they said that I'd be ready to contribute right away; catching or running out of the backfield," said Josh.

Morgan is the third running back prospect to choose Kentucky and he brings the Wildcats class to a total of 25 commitments.
