Morgan is ready to light things up for Cisco

A signal-caller who is just now starting to hear from D-1 programs is Cisco QB Jacob Morgan (6-4, 230). After a solid freshman campaign for the Wranglers, Morgan was fulfilling his commitment to play baseball, but decided his future lay on the gridiron and now his sole focus is on becoming the best quarterback he can be...

Morgan prepped at Stephen F. Austin High School in Austin, Texas and was a dual-sport athlete, lettering in both baseball and football.

When he figured out he wouldn't qualify to play D-1 football or baseball, he signed a baseball scholarship with the Wranglers and decided to play football as well.

"I had a good freshman season, but then once I was playing baseball, I just didn't have the love for it that I had for football and I know my future was with football," Morgan told JCFootball.com. "I love both sports, but football is what I wanted to do and it worked out so it's all good."

As a freshman last fall, Morgan was solid completing 54% of his passes for nearly 1,900 yards, 15 touchdowns and 13 interceptions while leading Cisco to a 6-4 record.

"I thought I played pretty well, but I have a lot to work on," Morgan noted.

"He's a big, good looking kid," Cisco head coach Scott Taylor added. "He's got a really good arm, but we're working on his decision-making, so he's got some work to do, but he's got all the tools you look for in a big-time guy."

Recruiting has been steady this spring, but more schools should come along as the May evaluation period gets underway.

"TCU talked to me during the fall and I think they still like me," Morgan said. "Abilene Christian is looking at me and I'm also hearing from Utah, Kansas State and Louisiana Tech."

Morgan is on pace to graduate in December and he plans to sign at that time with three years to play two wherever he ends up.
