When Erasmus Hall (Brooklyn, N.Y.) safety Wayne Morgan arrived to camp at Rutgers last week, he could have been one of the guys leading the tour.

Morgan, one of New York City's top class of 2012 prospects, has been there that often.

"This is probably my sixth time coming here," Morgan said. "I've been in the weight room, the game room. I really like it. I really like the campus."

While on campus the talented 5-foot-11, 185-pound Morgan spoke with Rutgers coach Greg Schiano and several members of the coaching staff while at the camp.

"It was good competition," Morgan said. "I gGot to move around and go against the best and compete. I did very good."

Morgan plays safety and quarterback for Erasmus Hall, where he was a force on both sides of the ball.

He completed 30 of 61 passes for 598 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions and he carried 119 times for 935 yards and 10 scores.

However, college are looking at him as a safety, and he made a big impact there. He had 73 tackles and three interceptions.

"I like free safety," Morgan said. "I like having the whole field to myself. I like to hit. I'm a big hitter."

Morgan cannot receive written offers until Sept. 1 (unless the NCAA rule change is passed), but he said Penn State, Miami, Rutgers, Maryland and Boston College each verbally offered him.

"I'm looking for an education, to graduate and have a shot at the next level," Morgan said. "I am thinking of a major. I'm thinking business management, but I'm thinking (what branch)."
