It's hard to pin down just how many scholarship offers Lancaster, Texas offensive tackle Anthony Morgan has at this point. However, after a trip to Norman, Oklahoma this past weekend, there is one in particular that he still would like to have.
Lancaster head coach Andrew Jackson says that Morgan's offers read like a who's who of college football. Alabama, Baylor, Florida, Kansas, Kansas State, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, TCU, Arizona, and Houston are just a few of those. However, after see Oklahoma this past weekend, it's pretty obvious who has a big lead.
"I know he went up there for the junior day visit with one of our sophomore tight ends," Jackson said. "He really likes Oklahoma. I don't know if they offered him or not. It's still up in the air. But, when we talked to him afterwards, he said if they offer, that's where he's going."
It seems pretty clear just how big of a lead the Sooners have on the race. The only other visit, besides the Rivals.com Junior Day at Southern Methodist University that Morgan has taken, is to TCU.
Texas A&M may be another stop for the 6-foot-4, 336-pounder.
"I think he's going there at some point," Jackson said about future trips for Morgan. "He's going to have his options on where he wants to go.
"He's had so many, the offers are getting hard to keep track of."
In other Lancaster tidbits, the talented Stephen Thomas has also had his share of heavy recruiting interest with scholarship offers. However, Jackson said he's trying to take care of academic concerns first before thinking about the Division I level.
"We're trying to get him on track with academics," Jackson said. "He's going to have to make a decision about his effort level and how serious he is. There is some work to do at this point for him."
Thomas also has several offers in hand from the likes of Arizona, Florida, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech.
