Citra (Fla.) North Marion wide receiver Darius Morgan could emerge as one of the top prospects at his position in the Sunshine State for the Class of 2008 and is claiming several early scholarship offers.
"I've got (verbal) offers from Tennessee, Auburn, Florida State and Florida," Morgan said. "Recruiting is going great right now. Everyday I go into school to get my work done and there's another scout in the building there to look at me."
Morgan also has interest in a trio of programs in addition to the four previously mentioned.
"I'm very interested in Georgia Tech because they had a physical receiver (Calvin Johnson) just like me," Morgan said. "I always wanted to look up Georgia Tech because I figured in practice they made (Johnson) tough and helped him become who he is. I like Oklahoma and USC because they like tall and physical receivers."
The 6-foot-5, 190-pounder will head to Gainesville this coming weekend for the Florida Junior Day. Dan Mullen and Billy Gonzales are recruiting Morgan for Florida.
"I always liked Florida," Morgan said. "I've always been a Florida Gators fan. I looked forward to going to their Junior Day to meet some of their players."
Just because he grew up pulling for the Gators doesn't mean they necessarily lead at the moment.
"I believe all of them are great schools," he said. "There are some I honestly don't know much about, but I am interested to learn more about them. I've been to Florida State because (North Marion graduate) Greg Carr is up there and I know him real well."
Morgan, who caught 42 passes for 651 yards and nine touchdowns his junior season, says there are a number of attributes that make him stand out at his position.
"Best I can explain is that I'm physical and like to play," he said. "You are going up against me and you are going to get 110 percent. If I can't find a way to beat you…well, let's just put it this way, I am going to find a way to beat you."
