Morgan high on Tigers

One of the schools Morgan is considering is the University of Memphis. He admitted that he doesn't know much about Memphis, but he hopes to change that on his official visit at the end of the season.

Catholic High senior defensive back Chris Morgan's recruitment is gaining some steam.

"A lot of schools have been contacting me, asking for film and for me to take official visits," Morgan said. "I'm waiting and seeing and being open to everybody right now."

One of the schools Morgan is considering is the University of Memphis. He admitted that he doesn't know much about Memphis, but he hopes to change that on his official visit at the end of the season.

He said linebackers coach and co-defensive coordinator Galen Scott is selling him on the fact that the Tigers are bringing in one of the best recruiting classes in program history, with 4-star quarterback Will Gross leading the pack.

"I know they're struggling now, but I know the guys they have committed are focused on getting there and helping them win games," Morgan said. "That's something I want to do at a program. I want to come in and contribute, and I feel like Memphis is a good opportunity for me to do that."

Morgan currently has offers from Tulane, Memphis, and Louisiana. He's rated a 2-star defensive back by Scout.

He said he'll decide after he finishes up his official visit schedule, whether he takes one or five.

Although the Tigers have been mired this season with poor secondary play, Morgan said he looks at it as a learning experience.

"I feel like in that type of situation I can come in and help," Morgan said. "I feel I can learn from them and guys there. They have experience for what they've been through, but I feel I can add things to their core as well."

Morgan, whose Catholic squad is 3-6, said he'd like to move away for college but that he still needs to feel welcomed at whatever school he picks.

"I just need to go to a place that's a home away from home," Morgan said. "I want to have that family sense. Wherever I'm most welcomed, and where I can make the biggest impact."
