One of Florida’s top prospects has faced more than his fair share of adversity going into his senior season.
Riviera Beach Suncoast wide receivier Dajuan Morgan is expected to miss at least six weeks after being injured in a serious car wreck. And it was his second brush with tragedy within the last month.
“It’s been a real tough month for Dajuan,” said the player’s mother. “Our home was hit by a tornado, and then he had this car wreck. He had a hip out of place, and he dislocated a thumb, too.
“We don’t know if he’ll be able to play again this year or not. It’s put a damper on his senior year, but we just thank God it wasn’t worse.”
Morgan (6-1, 190, 4.4) is a three-star prospect and rated the nation’s No. 19 wideout by Rivals.com. He has scholarship offers from Florida, N.C. State, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Georgia. He’s also receiving interest from Miami, Florida State, Auburn, Virginia Tech and Tennessee, among others.
As a junior, he rushed for 722 yards and nine touchdowns while passing for 13 touchdowns as a dual-threat quarterback. He also had five interceptions on defense.
