DALLAS - It's no secret that Dallas (Texas) Skyline linebacker Michael Morgan is a heavily sought after prospect not only within the Lone Star state, but the entire country. His offer count is littered with the top programs in the country, but it is now time for him to start taking anticipated visits.
Morgan, a four-star rated Rivals100 member, has always been known as a very open prospect who never got caught up in naming favorite schools or comparing visits. To this day, that has remained the same. One thing that is different is he is getting very clear on who he will visit over the next few months. Southern Cal is first and now he's got his second trip all lined up.
"Well I've got USC this weekend and then I went ahead and set up another one for Oklahoma on Dec. 9," Morgan said. "I don't know what to say about those two other than I just like both of those schools."
The No. 3 rated outside linebacker in the country is also considering Texas A&M, Florida State, and Michigan as probable schools that he will visit for the remaining official visit spots.
Still, Morgan is not ready to name a favorite.
"Nope, I'm not even there yet," Morgan said about naming some top schools. "I'm keeping things very open right now."
His season is also going very well as his Skyline team is sitting at 7-2. The only thing that might be frustrating is that teams are learning to run away from the talented defender. Though he is used to racking up stats, teams that avoid him don't bother him at all.
"No matter what their plan is, you still have to get to the ball," Morgan said. "You can't use that as any kind of excuse. It's about winning here at Skyline. Stats don't matter because everyone just wants to go all the way with a championship, not make up big numbers."
That team effort has things looking very good for the Dallas contender going into their final regular season game with the undefeated Carter High School. With all the recruiting attention, the top Texas player just wants to help his team finish things off with a bang.
"Well, it's going pretty good," he said. "You just have to keep that going."
