Morgan signs, recruiting may not be over

Vanderbilt's sports information department announced another football signee on Monday, bringing the total number of signees to 21 for coach Bobby Johnson's class of 2002.  And Johnson may not be completely finished recruiting for this fall's class.

Antoine Morgan, a 6-5, 225-pound defensive end / tight end from Marlboro County High School in Bennettsville, S.C., signed a letter-of-intent with Vanderbilt as expected back on Feb. 6, but his scholarship papers were slow to reach the Athletic Department's offices.  Morgan's team went 15-0 and won the state championship in South Carolina's 4A classification.

Reports indicate that another scholarship may still be awarded for the fall signing class, and that Johnson would still like to sign another lineman if possible.  Possibilities for remaining scholarship(s) include:

- Brett Nungesser, a 6-4, 275-pound offensive lineman from Pasadena Polytechnic School.  Nungesser is the younger brother of current Commodore Ryan Nungesser.

- Tyler Hendon, a 6-6, 275-pound offensive and defensive lineman from Leon High School in Tallahassee, Fla.  Hendon was to have made a visit to the Vanderbilt campus this week.
