It's been a strange and difficult off-season for Jordan Morgan, the former star player at Chandler (Ariz.) Valley Christian who's looking for a new high school after his father, Bill, abruptly resigned as coach in March.
Morgan, a 6-foot, 193-pound safety, is taking online classes now and looking for a new high school, still not sure where he's going to play his senior year. It's been a challenging few months but Morgan is getting through it as best as he can.
"I'm not for sure where I'm going to high school yet," Morgan said at the Palo Alto NIKE Camp. "I'm still talking it through with my parents and right now I'm finishing up with online school, a couple classes, and kind of working out on my own because I don't really know where I'm going yet.

"I've already gotten enough exposure so it won't be that hard, it will be sort of hard, because my family and I were thinking about moving north or down to Tucson. It's tough right now because I kind of have an idea where I'm going to college but I don't know where I'm going to high school."
Air Force, Army, Duke, Navy, North Dakota and a bunch of Ivy League schools have offered Morgan, who had 139 tackles last season. He also threw for 1,516 yards with 23 touchdowns and four interceptions and rushed for 1,450 yards and 20 scores.
Morgan said he has an idea on where he's headed to college but it's still too early to make a decision.
With California, Stanford, Arizona and Arizona State showing interest, Morgan is not ready to make an early commitment. He's going to visit some places this summer to see if any other programs offer.
"As of right now I have 10 offers and I've been offered by Navy, Army and Air Force and all the Ivy Leagues," Morgan said. "I'm hoping a few more come through. Cal is really interested in me as is Stanford.
"Cal is going to make a decision on me this week. I'm excited about that. Arizona and Arizona State said if I come out they're probably going to offer me, they just want to see my footwork.
"I don't think I'm going to commit early. I'm just going to play a hard senior year and then after I'll probably commit and see how many offers I have and see what best fits me best."
