Dallas Prospect Garnering National Attention

In continuing the search across the nation for the finest athletes available, Nebraska, along with several other institutions, has identified a young man from Texas who definitely fits the bill. Just what does this promising young man bring to the table and who is he interested in at this early point?

Michael Morgan definitely has the size to do what needs to be done on the football field.  Standing 6' 3" and weighing in at 190 pounds, the linebacker/defensive end prospect from Dallas, Texas is getting a lot of attention early on.  He currently claims offers from Oklahoma State, Arizona, UCLA, Purdue, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and Baylor amongst others. 

Morgan clocks a 40 yard dash at 4.5 seconds, benches 280 pounds and cleans 195 pounds.  He carries a 3.05 GPA in the classroom and reported a score of 840 on his first SAT attempt.  He plans to retake the test sometime in the future. 

Morgan racked up 98 tackles, 18 sacks and 7 forced fumbles as a junior and was named to the All-District team.  He is currently planning to camp at Oklahoma and Texas A&M.  He cites his best ability as his speed across the field.  Growing up, Morgan was actually a fan of one Big 10 school in particular.  "I liked Michigan, not really so much anymore," he said.  Morgan said that now he's following the USC Trojans quite a bit and has been impressed with their successes.  While Michael is getting looks from a number of high-quality colleges across the country, he doesn't claim any leader at this point, or any focal point of interest. 

He has mentioned that the University of Nebraska in specific has sent quite a bit of school information helping him to grow a little more familiar with the program in general.  Morgan has taken a bit of notice with the Cornhuskers stating that, "It's a program on the rise." 

Michael looks to be garnering quite a bit of interest across the country and it appears that the college who eventually nets his signature is going to have to fight tooth and nail to get the opportunity to call him theirs.
