Three-star Riviera Beach (Fla.) Suncoast wide receiver/defensive back Dajuan Morgan saw his senior season come to a premature close when he sustained multiple injuries in a car wreck late this summer, but that hasn’t stopped scouts from dialing his number.
“I’ve got calls the whole time,” he said. “It’s like I wasn’t hurt at all. I was a little worried at first, but the coaches have all said they know what I can do.”
Morgan (6-1, 190, 4.4) says he’s narrowed his decision down to five schools.
“Florida is No. 1,” he said. “N.C. State is No.2, Ohio State is No. 3, Oklahoma is No. 4 and No. 5 is Virginia Tech.
“Florida is my leader because of the way they throw the ball, their tradition, and how close it is to home. I’ve been liking them since I was a little kid. N.C. State is pretty close, though. They’re on top of their game. I love their passing offense. I’ve had a chance to watch them on TV a few times, and it looks like a real fun offense for a wide receiver.”
Morgan has set three of his official visits – Oct. 31 at Virginia Tech (for the Miami game); Dec. 5 at N.C. State and Dec. 12 at Ohio State. He’s in the process of setting up dates for the Gators and Sooners.
“The visits will determine everything,” he said. “It all depends on where I feel the most comfortable.”
N.C. State and Oklahoma are recruiting him exclusively as a wideout. Virginia Tech projects him at corner. Ohio State and Florida have indicated corner may be his best fit, but will give him the option to begin his career on offense.
“I’d rather play receiver,” he said. “I feel like that’s my best spot.”
He's rated by Rivals.com the No. 21 wide receiver prospect in the nation.
As a junior, Morgan played a dual-threat quarterback role. He rushed for 722 yards and nine touchdowns while passing for 13 more scores. On defense, he picked off five passes.
Academically, he’s a 3.0 student with an 18 on the ACT.
