Rivals100 DE has good trip to OSU

Four-star defensive end Derrick Morgan made his second official visit of the season to Columbus, Ohio over the weekend. The 6-foot-4, 260-pounder out of Coatesville, Pa. checked out Ohio State and their big win over Penn State.
"The visit was really good," he said. "I got a lot of information and overall I enjoyed myself. I got there on Saturday morning and basically went around and checked out the school and campus, met the academic advisors, hung out with the players a bit and sat in with all the coaches and met everyone.
"I got to hang out with a lot of the players including Gonzalez, Laurinaitis, Ginn and Jenkins. It was pretty good hanging out with those guys and I got along really well with all of them. They all basically told me that they coaches are as you see them."

On the visit, Morgan was able to meet with a few of the coaches.
"On Sunday I talked with coach Heacock and then this morning I talked with Jim Tressel," he stated. "Basically coach Heacock talked about the depth chart and where he saw me playing and how their defensive line works. He thinks I could be a drop back end that also rushes.
"Then in my conversation with coach Tressel. He basically broke down the whole program to me. He explained how he runs things and how they are successful with the six aspects to be successful."
While on the trip, the Rivals100 prospect took in the Ohio State-Penn State game.
"It was a really good game and the fans there are very dedicated to their team," he said. "It was exciting to watch and be in Columbus because the whole city is around the team. That's the main thing there. On the field, I watched the defensive line and they played physical and that was nice to see."
Though Morgan couldn't rate the visit, he claims it was a good one.
"I don't really want to give it a rating, but I had a good trip overall and enjoyed my time there."
Next up for Morgan is a trip this weekend to Miami.
"I just want to check out the pros and cons there and see how they compare to my other schools."
