Morgan Discusses Timeframe for Decision

PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Erasmus Hall Campus (N.Y.) defensive back Wayne Morgan was disappointed that he did not win an award at today's NIKE camp, but took a lot out of the event. After the conclusion, Morgan told ScarletReport.com that his college decision time-frame may not be what others expected …

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Erasmus Hall Campus (N.Y.) defensive back Wayne Morgan said that he may not wait until the last minute to make a verbal commitment to a school.

"I don't know," Morgan said. "I had thought about waiting until Signing Day, but I feel like if it's right, I'm going to make it. I'm going to know when the time is right. Maybe soon."

For Morgan, Michigan and Rutgers are the two schools pushing hardest for him and those are the two schools that his decision will likely come down to.

Michigan, and freshly-hired Brady Hoke, interests Morgan because of the way the program is changing, he said. But Rutgers is "like home." And he already has friends in the program.

"I feel comfortable," Morgan said. "I know the people like Miles Shuler over there. I love it. The coaches are cool. I know like five of the players already. I know Miles. I know Keith Stroud. Jamal [Wilson] lives across the street from me. I saw him last night actually."

Morgan spent time with Shuler, who was a coach at today's NIKE camp, between drills and after the conclusion of the camp.

"I like Miles Shuler a lot," Morgan said. "He's definitely happy with his choice."

Morgan said that his relationship with Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano is another major mark in RU's favor.

"I like Coach Schiano," Morgan said. "He's really cool. He cares about his players. That's one thing about him. He cares. Other coaches don't care like he does. He wants me to get an education. That's the first thing we talked about when I met him."

At the NIKE camp today at Rutgers Stadium, Morgan said he got everything he needed out of the event.

"I think the Combine went good for me," Morgan said. "I wanted to get the MVP, but I came out of it a better player. I just wanted to come out here and compete and have fun and work on some things that I needed to work on. I'm just getting better and just competing with the best. Just because you have offers doesn't mean you can get lazy. I'm just enjoying the moment."
