Hyattsville (Md.) Dematha Catholic 2018 standout John Morgan walked away from Michigan’s satellite camp last week with a new found confidence about his performance.
“I think I’ve impressed many coaches out here,” Morgan said of camp experience. “Many coaches from the around country came to see show my skills and show my talents.”
And part of his camp stay involved meeting Michigan’s coaches for the first time.
“This is my first time talking to the Michigan coaches throughout the summer,” he said. “So it was a real good time meeting all of them, getting familiar and all of that.”
Adding: “It was a great vibe,” he said of his talks with U-M, who have yet to offer. “The coaches really like my enthusiasm and my hard work ethic. I mean, it was a great experience coming out here and meeting with them. I really think they liked what I had to show today. So I am looking forward to hearing back from them.”
At 6-foot-2, 240-pounds, Morgan says U-M is looking at him as a defensive end, which is what he would like to play at the next level also. Some schools, however, have recruited him as a tight end.
“I’m just a more physical guy on defense,” he said. “I like to hit instead of being hit. I like to punish than be punished.”
Upcoming, Morgan has planed visits to North Carolina, North Carolina State, Ohio State, Syracuse (offer) and Maryland (offer).
“Biggest factor is probably family and connections, really,” Morgan said. “Me trying to make it the next level and a bond that I can make sure I can talk to the coach anytime feel like about something, a family bond.”
