DeMatha High School in Hyattsville is one of the legendary programs in the country and the school regularly produces D-1 college football talent.
2018 linebacker/tight end John Morgan will be another D-1 athlete from DeMatha and today he received a scholarship offer from Pitt.
Pitt joins Virginia Tech, Rutgers, Maryland, Penn State, Syracuse and Temple as schools that have already offered this talented junior.
“My head coach told me today during my lunch period that the Pitt staff came to the school today and offered me a scholarship,” said Morgan.
“Well I don’t know a lot about Pitt right now but I like how they’ve kept in touch with me. I can’t wait to learn more about Pitt though.”
Morgan will get a chance to learn more about Pitt soon because he tells me that he plans on visiting for the Virginia Tech game on October 27th.
“I don’t really have a favorite, I’m keeping my options open.,” said Morgan. “Communication is key for me; feeling comfortable with my position coach and with the coach recruiting me, along with the vibe of the school.”
It sounds like Morgan is a player that would fit perfect into a Pat Narduzzi attacking style defense.
“I think the strength of my game is using my athleticism to my advantage when it comes to rushing the passer,” said Morgan. “I like to use my speed rush to blow past my opponents when getting after the quarterback. It’s the one rush that I know I can use anytime to get that sack.”
Time will tell if Morgan ends up using his pass rushing talent in the Pitt Panther defense.
