Jordan Morgan Talks Recruiting

Jordan Morgan is a talented receiver out of Southridge High School in Beaverton (Ore.). Playing in a state not exactly known as a high school football hotbed, the class of 2014 wide receiver talked about his interest in several schools and what lies ahead for him in the recruiting process.

Morgan has a single offer as of now from San Jose State. However, the 6-2, 196-pound wide receiver has been talking to people from several schools, including newly promoted Oregon offensive coordinator Scott Frost.

"He said that they are taking two receivers from my class," Morgan said. "He said he wants me to come visit sometime in the spring and that they are evaluating receivers this week and next."

Frost told Morgan that he wanted to keep in contact with him after viewing his film. Morgan prides himself as a chemistry guy and someone who can gel with anyone on the gridiron.

"I'm able to get along with whatever quarterback and receivers I play with," Morgan said. "We'll go to seven-on-seven's in California and I'll go and synchronize with whoever I'm with for some reason. You can't really see that on film, but I'm a team player."

Morgan said that he's working with his Southridge teammates to boost his overall performance. He is striving to build on his lone offer.

"Working with my teammates…that's the only reason I'm getting where I am and where I'm at right now," Morgan said. "I'm happy with an offer, but I want to keep getting better and my teammates help me do that. We push each other…you can't do everything by yourself."

Morgan also pushes himself by working out with other top Oregon prospects like Joey Alfieri and Henry Mondeau of Jesuit High School and A.J. Hotchkins of Tigard High School. With no plans of slowing down, Morgan has a busy spring ahead of him and he plans on attending several camps around the country.

"I'm going to try to go to Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA, and I might be going to Florida," Morgan said.

Amongst those camps, Morgan also plans on taking a few unofficial visits.

"I'm visiting Oregon State, Arizona State, San Jose State and Oregon," Morgan said. "I already visited Washington for their junior day and that was fun."

Heading into his senior season, Morgan said that he has a few goals set, the biggest of which is playing in the U.S. Army All-American Game. But, he ultimately wants to win a state championship.

"You don't think about speed, you don't think about (how big you are), you just think about working hard and what ever coach tells us to do, I'm just doing that as hard as I can. Hopefully that's making us better," Morgan said of going after a title.
