RECRUITING: Florida athlete has OU's attention

Florida athlete says Oklahoma is in his top five, but did the Sooners make his top his top three?


Morgan is a very special athlete who is one of the most versatile players in Florida playing as many as five positions thus far at Suncoast High School.

"I have played cornerback, wide receiver, strong safety, free safety and quarterback," said Morgan. "This season I am going to start out at wide receiver and cornerback, but I know that I will also play quarterback and free safety as well."

Speed kills in Florida and Morgan has a forty clocking at 4.29 and that is motoring. He has also been clocked at 10.6 in the 100-meters on the track team. Last season at quarterback, Morgan threw for over 1,000 yards and rushed for a little over 500, while scoring six touchdowns rushing and throwing for 11 more. On defense, Morgan alternated between two positions and came up with three interceptions.

Morgan benches 275 pounds and squats 385. Morgan didn't attend any summer camps last year, but he hopes to make several this season. Morgan has over 15 offers at this point and he has narrowed his choices down to six schools.

"I really like Miami, Florida, Ohio State, Florida State, Oklahoma and Georgia. My top three are probably Miami, Florida and Ohio State. I love their programs and the athletes that those schools always seem to have, plus all three of those programs send a lot of players to the pros.

"I like Oklahoma pretty well," Morgan continued. "They are a good program and they throw the ball quite a bit, which is important to me because I might play receiver in college. Whichever college I choose has to let me go both ways, because I want to play both wide receiver and cornerback in college. Ohio State and Florida have both said that I can play both ways for them."

Morgan plans to take his visits and he probably won't make a decision until December or January. Morgan is also a very good student carrying a 3.0 GPA.
