Morgan Delays Decision

Erasmus Hall High (Brooklyn) four-star safety Wayne Morgan was planning to announce his college decision today, but he told those plans are on hold. Morgan also talked about why he is waiting, what schools he is considering and why he delayed his decision.

Erasmus Hall High (Brooklyn) four-star safety Wayne Morgan told he was close to announcing a decision, but is slowing things down right.

However, the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Morgan continues to focus on two schools -- Michigan and Rutgers – and isn't sure when he will commit to a school.

"I was (ready to announce today) but I'm not anymore," Morgan said. "My family just feels like it's kind of early so I might give it some time."

Early in the recruiting process, Morgan spoke about waiting until after his senior season to make a decision. And while that doesn't seem likely anymore, he doesn't think a decision is going to come in the next few days.

"I'm going to wait," Morgan said. "Michigan and Rutgers are my top two."

One of the interesting aspects of Morgan's recruitment is the commitment situation at Michigan, which already has 14 commitments, including two cornerbacks and a safety.

The last three additions to the Wolverines' 2012 class were all defensive backs, and came in the last two weeks. In the last two days Michigan got commitments from safety Allen Gant of Sylvania (Ohio) Southview High and cornerback Anthony Standifer of Crete (Ill.)-Monee High.

Will those commitments influence or affect Morgan's decision?

"It's too early to talk about it now since it just happened," he said. "I'm not sure what it does."

How much does Morgan speak to the Rutgers coaching staff?

"I speak to them a lot," he said.
