Looking for two players blowing up with attention, Lancaster, Texas duo Anthony Morgan and Stephen Thomas have to be at the top of that list. Since attending the Rivals.com junior day, things have been changing quickly for the Lone Star pair.
Offers have been rolling in from Baylor, Oklahoma State, Alabama, Arizona, Kansas, Ole Miss, Kansas State, TCU, and others have all offered at this point for Morgan. Thomas has basically the same offers with the addition of Texas Tech. Lancaster assistant Cliff Keeling says that things have really gone through the roof.
"The first one came in after the Rivals junior day and that was Baylor," Keeling said. "All he had at that point was the verbal offer from Texas A&M. They still want him to come to their junior day before they offer.
"Ole Miss is official, Kansas, Kansas State, TCU, they all came in quickly."
The dominant defender Thomas has reeled in basically a mirror image of the offers for Morgan. However, one major difference has been the involvement of Southern Cal.
"Coach Ken Norton Jr. at USC really likes him," Keeling said about the 6-foot-3, 287-pound Thomas. "Stephen calls him all the time and they are going to be evaluating him very heavily over the next couple of months."
Keeling also added that the success for Morgan has been quite the life-changing event. Growing up quickly has given him added maturity.
"He's truly overcome a lot of stuff and if he had to go to college right now, he could do it," Keeling said about Morgan. "He's been away from his parents and he's done a great job. He's going to make it."
Keeling also added that with his giant frame, many schools like Morgan at the guard position. Both players are planning on attending the NIKE Training Camp in College Station, Texas.
