Three Offers for DB Davon Morgan

On Feb. 1, Michigan signed running back Brandon Minor out of Varina High School in Richmond, Va. However, that did not conclude the Wolverines' presence at Varina, as Minor's cousin, defensive back Davon Morgan, is being recruited by Michigan. spoke Monday with Morgan, and he reports three offers, one of which is from Michigan.

It was no surprise when running back Brandon Minor announced in January that he would sign with Michigan. The Wolverines are attempting to lure another Varina star, and Minor relative, to Ann Arbor as they are hot after defensive back Davon Morgan, who also happens to be Minor's cousin.

"I have three offers now," Morgan said. "Virginia Tech was the first, then Michigan, and the University of Richmond. Virginia Tech is recruiting me as a safety, Richmond wants me as a quarterback, and Michigan is recruiting me as a corner." He noted that he has not played the corner position in high school, but that Michigan was interested in him at the position because of his size. Michigan running backs coach Erik Campbell is recruiting Morgan, who added that he has yet to meet new Michigan defensive coordinator Ron English.

The 6-foot-0, 180-pound Morgan said he has no preference in schools at this time. He added that as a youngster he grew up watching the Hokies because they were the only team covered on TV. His household didn't have cable television.

Morgan said his cousin is allowing him the opportunity to experience his own recruitment, without pressuring him to come to Michigan. "He's just told me to go with my heart and do what I think is best for me," Morgan said.

His camp schedule is still up in the air at this time. Morgan said he did attend the Nike camp in Blacksburg last spring, and this year he will attend the Nike camp at Tennessee, as well as the combine in Durham, N.C. "My team will also attend the camp at West Virginia, and we go to Richmond every year," he said. "I'll probably go to either the Michigan or the Virginia Tech camps this summer."

Morgan reports a junior season in which he threw for 1,402 yards, with 20 touchdowns and six interceptions. He had 505 yards rushing and eight TD's. On defense he reports 30 tackles and nine interceptions - three of which he returned for TD's. He said he also took a recovered fumble back for a score.

He said he wants to take his time with his decision, and will most likely wait until Signing Day to announce his college choice.
