Kye Morgan put up big numbers as a junior. The 5-11, 180-pound running back out of Somerset (NJ) Franklin rushed for over 1,000 yards, had another 400 receiving yards and 22 total touchdowns. He earned first-team all-conference, all-area and all-state honors. Colleges have taken notice.
"I visited Rutgers, I'm going to UConn, and I'm supposed to go to Boston College in a few weeks," Morgan said. "I start track in a couple weeks, so that's it (for visits). I'm just trying to get stronger.
Pittsburgh is another school Morgan had been hearing from. He hasn't heard anything from them recently, but wouldn't rule them out.
"I did hear from Pitt," Morgan said. "The coaches changed, and now their offensive coordinator (Frank Cignetti Jr.) is at Rutgers. I haven't heard anything from the new staff, not yet anyways."
Morgan will turn his focus to track season in a couple weeks, as he said. He participates in the 100 and 200-meter runs as well as the long jump and triple jump.
