Morgan Hears From UNC

North Carolina put in a call to 2014 wing Dwayne Morgan on Thursday afternoon.

UNC assistant coach C.B. McGrath talked to Baltimore's Finest coach Dwayne Wise and the 6-foot-7, 205-pound wing.

"North Carolina just reached out to me about Dwayne," the Baltimore Panthers coach said. "They are going to bring the whole staff to see him at Reebok."

"[McGrath] just had a nice talk to Dwayne on the phone," wise added. "Dwayne was excited. They said they are going to [all three of our July events] actually."

Morgan, who recently transferred from Baltimore (Md.) City College, currently holds scholarship offers from Maryland, Florida, Miami, Missouri and North Carolina State. Texas, Georgetown and others are also involved.

Wise also said that Morgan will likely take a visit to North Carolina's campus after the July evaluation periods.

"He's going to visit UNC in the early fall, probably in August," Wise said.

According to Wise, Morgan, who is ranked No. 11 overall in the 2014 class and as the No. 3 small forward by Scout.com, was excited about the call from the Tar Heels.

"It's good progress and that's a school that Dwayne really likes."

Scout Evaluations

"You won't find many in the class of 2014 with the raw ability that Morgan, a 6-foot-7 combo forward possesses. From the high post, Morgan is particularly dangerous because he can face up and knock down the mid-range jumper or attack the basket. Morgan is skilled and fluid enough to play the three spot, but he's also strong and tough enough to play the four spot as well. He's a versatile guy that is proving himself as an elite talent in the junior class." -- Evan Daniels

"There is a lot to like with Morgan. He has very long arms, is an excellent athlete, and has a great ability to rebound the basketball. On top of that he is just scratching the surface of how good he is going to become. His best basketball is ahead of him, but Morgan is already pretty darn good. Once he adds strength it is over." -- Brian Snow
