Over the weekend, a prospect from the state of Ohio traveled to Pittsburgh to learn more about the Pitt football program.
Alex Morgan (6-5, 230) is a 2018 tight end/defensive end from Pickerington, Ohio and he took in Pitt’s last second win over Georgia Tech at Heinz Field.
“Well that was my second trip to Pittsburgh,” said Morgan. “My family and I like the area and were excited to visit again.”
“There’s always a great atmosphere when we go there and it’s great that the coaches take the time on a game day to see and talk to everyone. I got to speak with Coach Landan Salem, who I met on my first visit and I also got to speak with Coach Sims and Coach Peterson as well. They let me know that they’d be to my school sometime soon and I’m excited about that,” said Morgan.
Morgan is a prospect that a lot of schools are still evaluating. The junior tells me that he’s received interest from Indiana, Purdue, Toledo, Akron and Central Florida but none have offered yet.
“Pitt if recruiting me at tight end but I’ve been playing various positions this season like fullback, wide receiver and H-Back,” said Morgan. “I think my biggest strength is catching the ball and my blocking ability.”
Morgan plans on visiting Toledo this weekend but is still hoping to have more contact with the coaches at Pitt.
“From what I’ve seen, it’s a great program and the coaches seem to have a good relationship with the players. It also seems to be a program that’s not only supported by the school but by the community.”
