Morgan adds another

Chris Morgan, the junior DB from Catholic-Baton Rouge, received his second scholarship offer this week, and he talks about recruiting here with Which programs are in the mix for the hard-hitting Morgan?

"I called Coach (Galen) Scott from Memphis and we were talking about how I could play in their system," said Chris Morgan. "He then said they have an offer for me, and that they were coming to see me next week (spring training opens in Louisiana on Monday).

"I like Memphis. DB is a position of concern for them, and I feel like I could play early and fit in well. I've also noticed how they've been going after Louisiana players the past couple of years."

Morgan now sits at two scholarship offers, as the UL Ragin' Cajuns were the first program to extend an offer. Which other schools are showing interest?

"SMU is showing a lot of interest," said Morgan. "Georgia Tech is my favorite, but SMU is creeping up there. They signed four players from Louisiana this year, and that makes them even more attractive. I know three of their 2011 signees well: James Richardson, Nyle Johnson, and Daren Kitchen.

"Coach (Jeff) Reinebold from SMU says he loves my physicality. They want to see me in person at their camp. My dad talked to Coach Jeff a couple of days ago. I like how he (Reinebold) seems very sincere. He's legit. He doesn't sugarcoat anything. He tells it like it is, and I respect that."

Last weekend, Morgan played on the star-studded "Louisiana Bootleggers" squad at the Badger 7-on-7. The team qualified for this summer's national tourney, and Morgan gave a brief recap.

"We hadn't really spent any time playing together before the tournament," he said. "Our defense was good from the beginning, and our offense started clicking on the second day.

"Tyre Bracken, Travin Dural, Jordan Batiste, and Jaydrick Declouet stood out. We're hoping to get Daniel Taylor and Landon Collins with us for the nationals."
