Now that Tre’Von Morgan is completely healthy and able to display his talent, college programs are starting to take notice.
The latest program to do so is the Pitt Panthers, who extended an offer to him over the weekend.
Morgan (6-6, 215) is a 3-star wide receiver from Massillon, Ohio and now holds major offers from Pitt, Virginia, Missouri and Cincinnati.
“It just honestly means a lot and it shows how much work I’ve done in order to get this offer,” said Morgan. “Since my sophomore year I’ve liked Pitt and then once I got invited to a game it made things so much better. I kind of fell in love, but at the same time I’m gonna keep my options open.”
“What interests me most about Pitt would be the stadium and the coaching staff. Their stadium gets so loud and the intro in the game and stuff was just an eye opener.”
To gain more insight on Morgan, Pittsburgh Sports Now had a chance to talk with his head coach at Massillon Nate Moore.
“I think he has a huge upside,” said Moore. “He’s 6-foot-6 inches, 215 pounds, runs really well, tracks the ball really well and I think he’s going to be a really good player for somebody. His overall body of work has just really improved and that all starts in the off-season. All the hours that he put in with the quarterbacks and other receivers. All the time he put in the weight room. Also, I think him running track this year really helped him as well.”
“Pitt comes in quite a bit, every recruiting period they come in. Coach Watson has really been involved (in evaluating Morgan). Tre’Von actually broke his collarbone at the Nike Regionals so his entire summer camp evaluation period was non-existent as he was recovering from that injury. He probably would’ve had an offer from Pitt and a lot more schools this summer if he was able to perform at camps. He just needed to be patient and put it on film this year and that’s pretty much what’s happened. Pitt’s wide receivers coach was at the game our game on Friday, watching and evaluating him and didn’t take long for him to let me know that Tre’Von had an offer from Pitt and he was pretty excited about that.”
Morgan becomes the latest player from the Massillon program to receive an offer from Pitt. 2019 linebacker Jamir Thomas and 2021 wide receiver Jayden Ballard also currently hold offers from Pat Narduzzi’s team.
“I’ve known Coach Narduzzi since he’s been at Michigan State and we’d go over and visit him and spend time with his defensive staff,” said Moore. “Proximity wise, it’s an hour and a half from Massillon so it’s really the closest Power Five school to us geographically. There’s a lot of things that make sense, it’s an ACC school, a top institution academically, so I think there’s a bunch of positive things for recruits to look at.”
Pitt currently has one wide receiver commit (Jared Wayne) in their Class of 2019.
