NC State picked up it's thirteenth verbal commitment this weekend, when Riviera Beach (FL) Suncoast Athlete DaJuan Morgan verbaled to the Wolfpack. Morgan had a great official visit to NC State and discussed both the trip and his commitment with StateFans.

"It went real good," Morgan said. "The player who stood out the me the most was Richard Washington. I like him and (player host) Garland Heath... he's from the same area as me. Everyone's cool up there."

What about his official visit stood out the most to DaJuan?

"It was just Chuck Amato. He made feel comfortable there, and it was just all the love they showed me."

The trip was so good that Morgan gave Coach Amato and NC State a verbal commitment, a decision that DaJuan admits he had made even before visiting Raleigh.

"Actually I had decided that before going up there, but I just wasn't going to tell anybody. The visit made me want to do it even more, so I gave Coach Amato my word."

While at NC State DaJuan experienced a common element of official visits, putting on a Wolfpack jersey and running out of the tunnel into the stadium. Morgan took this to another level, putting on the full Wolfpack uniform.

"Yea, the coaches told me I was one of the first to put on my full uniform to run out of the tunnel. It had been a long time since I've done that, and I wanted to put it on to see how I look in it. I was so pumped and ready to play... it was crazy."

The Morgan family is happy that DaJuan chose to play at NC State, a closer drive then to Ohio State, and they already have three dates circled on the football calendar for next season.

"We play Miami, Florida State, and Ohio State at home so I know my family will come up for those games. They are as happy about this as I am."

Schools have already began to contact Morgan, but NC State fans shouldn't worry as he points out this commitment is firm.

"Yea, Iowa, Duke, and Ohio State have been calling even while I was on my visit. It doesn't matter though because I'm going to sign with NC State on Wednesday. I went ahead and bought a jersey to wear at my signing that we do at the school."

Morgan will hold a small press conference at Suncoast High School Wednesday morning. He will sign his National Letter-of-Intent at this time. *****
