Morgan Sets Dates and Has a Leader

Riviera Beach (FL) Suncoast Wide Receiver DaJuan Morgan's summer has been rough, with his home being hit by a tornado and suffering through a terrible car accident. The football star maintains upbeat through it all and looks forward to the future.

"I had dislocated my right hip and my left arm in a car accident," DaJuan Morgan told StateFans. "I'm not going to be able to play this year, but it's not affected my recruiting so that's good. It's still going the same way as before my accident and all of my schools are still after me."

Morgan is an electrifying talent who followed in the footsteps of Florida HS prep legend and University of Miami standout Devin Hester at Suncoast. High-major programs across the country noticed his exploits early on and are still hot on his trail.

"Florida, NC State, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Virginia Tech are going to be my five visits. I've set up two official dates and the other three I haven't set the exact dates with yet. I'm going to Virginia Tech on November 4th and N.C. State on December 5th."

With the official visits drawing near, does DaJuan have a leader at the moment?

"Florida is my favorite. They've been my team since I was little, and I like Coach Ron Zook. I like how he runs things, and I see that the young quarterback Chris Leak can get the job done. They like to throw the ball a lot and I feel like I can fit in there."

Morgan stated that the Gators and North Carolina State are recruiting him the hardest, with Head Coach Chuck Amato's chief Florida recruiter attempting to bring DaJuan up to Raleigh.

"Coach 'Doc' Holliday's recruiting me for N.C. State. Everytime I talk to him he mentions how I"m going to fit in and that the visit to N.C. State will be so good that it will be my last."

"We always joke around too, and I like that. He'll say to me that he's looking for another big-time wide receiver from Florida and asks me if I know where he can find one. I joke back and say that I've heard of one down here in Riviera Beach at Suncoast. We just joke around and talk football... I like Coach Holliday a lot."

With Florida named the current leader, it could be tough to land Morgan, but if anyone can do it, the Wolfpack are in position to do so.

"N.C. State's my #2 school... if I leave the state of Florida that's where I'm going. Their visit will probably determine it all. How I feel about the other players, see the facilities, and how they operate as a team. It's going to be very important."

Don't expect an early decision from DaJuan, who plans on taking all his trips before signing in February.

"I think I'm going to probably wait until the wire before announcing and that way I can take all my visits and make the best decision."
