Morgan Back From Raleigh

Riviera Beach (FL) Suncoast athlete DeAndre Morgan took his first official visit to NC State this past weekend and was impressed with the Wolfpack.

He was hosted on his visit by his brother, DaJuan Morgan, a redshirt freshman safety for the Wolfpack.

"The coaches, the players, and the environment was what I expected them to be," DeAndre Morgan told Pack Pride. "It was fun. You always have something to do at State and if you didn't you could go over to the football complex and do about anything.

"They treat the football players great there. That's another good thing about it. I hung out with my brother and had a great time."

Despite the great visit, the three-star commitment didn't verbal to the Wolfpack.

"I talked with coach Amato about it, and he knew I wasn't going to commit," Morgan said. "I told him I wanted to take a couple of more visits, but most likely this is where I'm going to be. I just want to see everywhere else... see some of the world."

Morgan also had the chance to watch the Wolfpack face in-state rival North Carolina. NC State lost the game 31-24, but Morgan felt they still had a chance to pull out the victory.

"Penalties killed them," he said. "I know they could have won. They've been beating themselves. They've just got to pick it up and get it going."

Morgan also had a chance to meet with NC State cornerbacks coach Greg Williams.

"I met with the position coach, and he showed me some film," he said. "He was saying I'd be a good fit, and I could come in and play. It would be up to me if I play or not. It would be about how hard I worked."

Obviously pleased with his first official, Morgan has already scheduled three other trips and has one slot remaining to fill if he choose to do so.

"Ole Miss is next month on the 21st, West Virginia is December 1st, and Wake Forest is January 7th," he said. "I haven't set up my last visit yet, and I don't know if I'm going to or not."

After the trip to NC State, the Wolfpack appears to have a big lead over the competition for the 5-foot-11, 170-pound athlete.

"Yes, NC State leads," Morgan said. "They really need corners and they are looking at me as one of their top recruits. Another big reason is my brother is there, and I will get to play with him in the defensive backfield."
