Riviera Beach (Fla.) Suncoast standtout Dajuan Morgan admits he’s been torn between favorites this spring.
“Florida and Miami are my top two,” he said. “Florida’s been my team since Day One, and they’ve already offered, so that’s a big plus for them. I’ll be going to their camp on July 12-13.
“But I’ve always wanted to play for Miami, too, so I’m kind of watching to see what happens there. I’m trying to get down (to Miami) for their camp this weekend. I’m not sure if I can go right now, but I’d like to. Their coaches want to see me some more. If they offered, it would be a real tough decision.”
Morgan (6-1, 190, 4.4) played quarterback as a junior, but projects as a wide receiver or defensive back at the next level. He rushed for 722 yards and nine touchdowns last season on offense. He added five interceptions on defense.
In addition to the Gators and Hurricanes, he has offers from Ohio State, Auburn, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, N.C. State, Oklahoma, Georgia, Duke, South Florida and Central Florida.
The only team challenging the two in-state powers at this point, Morgan said, is Ohio State.
“They would be my third choice right now,” he said. “I like them a lot. I’m just not sure if I’ll leave the state if both Florida and Miami are offering.”
Morgan said he’s looking for a program that has a winning tradition and where he can make an impact as early as possible. “I’m also looking at how the school does sending people to the NFL,” he added.
Academically, he carries a 3.0 GPA and has scored an 18 on his first ACT attempt. He projects as a full-qualifier, but will take the test again in an effort to score higher.
