Morgan helps pave the way for Navarro attack

Even though he's got plenty of schools to choose from, Navarro OG Anthony Morgan (6-4, 325) remains solidly committed to the school he gave his pledge to this past summer. caught up with Morgan recently and he updated us on recruiting as well as what he loves about playing offensive guard.

Morgan prepped at Lancaster High School in the Dallas area and signed with Baylor, but he was unable to get a qualifying SAT score so Navarro is where he ended up.

"I had a friend who was already going to Navarro so I just decided that was where I wanted to go," Morgan said. "I didn't commit to Navarro until May because I was trying to qualify, but when I figured out I wasn't going to, I don't think a lot of the JC's out there knew I didn't qualify.

"I've been real happy here. I'm doing the best I've ever done in school and I'm improving a lot as a player and we're winning so honestly, this has been a great choice for me."

Morgan is incredibly strong and very athletic - he claims a 500 pound bench as well as a 5.3 forty time.

"I love playing inside because you can be aggressive," Morgan said. "I like pulling and getting out in front and moving guys off the line."

Morgan and the rest of the Navarro line have helped pave the way for a rushing attack that averages over 235 yards per game and that has helped push the Bulldogs to a 5-0 record and they've continued to climb up the rankings.

"We're feeling it," Morgan admitted. "We're playing well and we're confident. We just need to keep playing hard and I think we will continue to be successful if we take it one game at a time."

On the recruiting front, Morgan had plenty of offers during the spring and summer, but something about Oklahoma State made him decide to become a Cowboy.

"They were recruiting me hard out of high school and they kept in touch after I didn't qualify," Morgan said. "Coach (Joe) Wickline and I are real close and he's a guy I really want to play for and I just really liked the campus and the players and the program. It fits me perfectly.

"I went up there a few weeks ago (September 13th) on my official visit and it just re-affirmed to me I made the right decision and I told them I was solid in my commitment to them."

Morgan said he also has offers from schools like Illinois, Kansas, Kansas State, Baylor, TCU, Hawaii, Ole Miss, Colorado State and Arizona.

"I'm on pace to graduate in December and then I'll be up (at Oklahoma State) for spring ball," Morgan said.

Next weekend Navarro will take on Northeast Oklahoma in league play.
