Morgan Moves Up Decision Timeframe
The 6'0", 190 pound Morgan, who runs a 4.4 second forty yard dash, currently holds scholarship offers from South Carolina, Clemson, North Carolina, Colorado and East Carolina. However, one team has remained the frontrunner for Morgan's services over the past several months.
"South Carolina is still on top for me," said Morgan. "When I look at them, I see that Steve Spurrier came in there, and he‘s a good coach. He‘s trying to make changes around there, and they‘re just a real good team that I see up-and-coming. I already have a teammate down there in Chris Culliver, and it would be great to play with him again. I could definitely see myself down there helping them win games."
According to Morgan, he also likes what the in-state Tar Heels have to offer, and they are a close second behind the Gamecocks.
"North Carolina is right behind them. It's probably going to be them two in the end. Butch Davis is there, and he's a good coach too. They're an in-state college that's not too far away from the house, so that would be real easy for me to get up there. I like North Carolina a lot too."
After originally planning to take his time and make a final decision following his senior season, Morgan has now decided to move up his timeframe and announce his college choice by the end of the summer.
"After talking with my family and a couple of my coaches at school, I've decided I'll have my decision of where I want to go by the end of the summer. Me and Reggie (Bowens) have talked about (having a dual-announcement), so that's another reason I've decided to do it by the end of the summer. When I found out he was doing it at the end of the summer, that made me want to do it too."
The duo of Morgan and teammate Reggie Bowens attended a one day camp at UNC last Saturday, and they plan to visit South Carolina's camp this coming weekend. According to Morgan, who will also camp at N.C. State and East Carolina later in the summer, he will try to get a better feel for each school when attending their respective camps.
"I want to see how the coaches work and how they coach their players. I want to see the campus and how it looks. I want to see the atmosphere around me. I'm going to look into the their graduation rates and their education. I'm just going to look into a lot of these colleges and see which one I could really see myself at."
Morgan racked up 83 tackles, five tackles for loss, and three interceptions as a junior last season.
