What did Morgan think of his visit to UW?

It's no secret that the Washington coaches want to find the heir-apparent to Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Michael Hartvigson at tight end and the player they have right in their cross-hairs is Prestonwood Christian (Plano, Tx.) TE Christian Morgan. The big, athletic prospect was in Seattle over the weekend to take in the Spring Game and he said UW opened his eyes to what it has to offer...

"It was a really great visit," Morgan told Dawgman.com Monday afternoon. "I was up there from Friday through yesterday, I didn't get back until really late last night, and I'll say it made a big impression on me.

"It's a lot different up there than where I'm from and it's far from home, but I really enjoyed myself up there."

Chief among the highlights for the 6'4", 255-pounder was the Spring Game at Century Link Field.

"That stadium was amazing and it was a lot of fun getting to see Keith (Price) and Austin (Seferian-Jenkins)," Morgan said. "They really showed us a great time and the game was a lot of fun. I know it wasn't the offensive fireworks everybody wanted, but it was tough and it was hard-nosed and as a player you love those types of games."

In addition to that, Morgan said he found the presentation of what Husky Stadium will look like come 2013 to be awe inspiring.

"I've been to a bunch of schools and seen a bunch of stadiums and there isn't anyone that will have a better place to play and better facilities than Washington," Morgan said. "It is going to be a amazing there and then you throw in what they already have there, the lake right there, the city so close, I mean it is going to be absolutely amazing."

As far as where recruiting stands, Morgan said he had planned to make his decision at the end of May, but has decided to hold off for a number of reasons.

"I mean, yeah, I'd like to decide and be done with it, but I just have so many schools going through my head right now, it's just not going to be possible I don't think," Morgan said. "I have about five or six, maybe 10, that I am focused on, I guess I sorta like those schools more than the others, but I'm still wide open right now. I don't really know when I will decide, but right now it's just not in the cards I don't think."

So does that mean Washington has a fighting chance?

"I mean, Washington is right there, I like them a lot," Morgan said. "Really, with the distance and it being so much different (than where he's from), it will play a part in it, but honestly, I know wherever I go it's going to be an adjustment, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I was going to think about that a little."

Morgan said he isn't ready to name a leader or even give a top 10 at this point, but he said he has started to think about which schools he will be focused on this spring and that if he's ready he'd like to make his decision before his season, but if not, he will take some visits in the season and decide as quickly as he can after those are completed.

"Things are sorta sped up for me because I'm going to graduate early, so I have to know what I'm going to do sooner rather than later," Morgan said. "A lot will go into my decision, playing time, the offense, my relationship with the coaches, distance, culture, all that stuff. It's not just one thing. It's everything."

We will have more from Morgan in the coming weeks and months as he gets closer to narrowing things down.
