'17 QB has 'awesome' visit to Louisville

Union, Ky., Ryle High School 2017 quarterback Tanner Morgan made an unofficial visit to the University of Louisville on Tuesday afternoon. Morgan has offers from the Cardinals and from Wake Forest. He recaps his visit for Cardinal Authority.

Union, Ky., Ryle High School quarterback Tanner Morgan picked up his second scholarship offer last week, landing one from the University of Louisville. He didn't wait long to check out the Cardinals.

Morgan, a Class of 2017 prospect, made an unofficial visit to U of L with his father on Tuesday.

"The visit went awesome," Morgan said. "I am impressed with everything I saw."

Morgan said he spoke with the U of L coach, talking to Bobby Petrino about his style of offense, and saw some of the campus. He gave the visit high marks.

"I would fit into the system extremely well," Morgan said. "It's a pro-style offense that gets guys ready for the next level, which is what I want."

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Morgan is expected to come back for a camp at U of L and will also attend camps at Michigan and Illinois. His other offer came from Wake Forest.

Morgan, who played his sophomore season at Hazard, Ky., High before transferring to Ryle for his spring semester, led Hazard to a 10-3 record last season throwing for 2,536 yards and 31 touchdowns.
