Recruiting Scene:.Morehead was a heavy State lean for much of his recruiting but always left just enough doubt to keep everyone guessing.
UNC appeared to be the main threat although the Heels never seemed to go all in for his commitment. Whatever the case, Morehead committed to NC State after making the trip to Raleigh during one of the Wolfpack’s summer camp sessions. He would remain committed throughout and helped the Pack recruit several additional prospects.
Why NC State? "I was just waiting until the next time I came up here to NC State to commit. Every time I come down here it always feels like I'm already a part of the family. That's good to know that you have that support and they've already got your back.
"Coach White is recruiting me and he was happy and smiling and all that when I told him. He had been waiting on it so it was good to see a smile on his face. Coach Doeren was real happy. He was waiting for me to commit too and he got what he wanted."
Picked NC State Over: Tennessee, UNC, Clemson, ECU, and Wake Forest
Scouting Report: “Morehead is strong and very physical. He jammed receivers at the line and did a nice job of flipping his hips and running with them. Morehead was also comfortable in zone coverage and broke quickly on the football.” Scout Recruiting Analyst Michael Clark
