Morgan talks top 10 play, MSU offer

Junior receiver from Louisiana makes highlight-reel play last weekend in a big win for St. Augustine (New Orleans, La.) over John Curtis. He talks about seeing himself on TV and holding an offer from Michigan State.

It's not everyday that a high school football player makes it into ESPN's top 10 plays, but that's exactly where Stanley Morgan found himself last weekend.

"You would never think going into a game that you are going to be on ESPN top 10," he said. "That's every kid's dream that plays sports and it was just amazing."

Morgan also had the game-winning 2-point conversion reception to defeat John Curtis 29-28.

"It went great," he said. "We came back and won it with a touchdown from Leonard Fournette and a great pass from our quarterback Toi Jackson to me for a 2-point conversion to win the game."

When it comes to recruiting, Morgan holds two early offers, Michigan State and Tulane.

The Spartans offered Morgan during spring football, he said.

"One of the Michigan State coaches came in and offered me on the spot," he said. "I felt great. It makes you feel like all your hard work is worth it because a coach is noticing you and gives you such a big offer like that. It's knowing all your hard work pays off."

He said he didn't know much about MSU when he was offered and found it surprising.

"It was very surprising," he said. "I didn't even know they knew about me way up there. It makes you think everything is possible."

He said he would like to visit Michigan State and is hearing from LSU, Louisiana Tech and MSU consistently. He also said he knows what is most important in his recruitment.

"First is academics," he said. "Then how I really feel at home with the coaches, too."
