Cisco QB preparing for sophomore season

A JUCO signal-caller that fans need to be aware of is Cisco QB Jacob Morgan (6-4, 230). He gave up a promising baseball career to focus solely on football and after a solid freshman season in 2010, he's poised to be one of the top quarterbacks in the country this fall...

"I've really been working hard with my top two receivers this summer, just to get ready for the season," Morgan told JCFootball.com recently. "I haven't really heard much from schools other than what I heard this spring, but I figure a lot of that has to do with them wanting to see more of me this fall before anything really starts to happen."

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.

"He's a big, good looking kid," Cisco head coach Scott Taylor said during the spring. "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."

TCU, Kansas State, Utah and Louisiana Tech are the schools who have shown the most interest in Morgan so far and with a big sophomore season this fall, Morgan could be one of the top signal-callers in the country due to his size, athleticism and Football I.Q.

"I'm just working a lot on my mechanics, making sure they are sound and my timing with my receivers," Morgan said. "I've also been studying film a lot so that I can read defenses better and that will allow me to make quicker decisions and better decisions."

Morgan will graduate in December and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
