It shouldn’t come as a surprise that John Morgan has received a bunch of interest since being a free agent.
The former Pitt defensive end who entered the NCAA transfer portal today has not only received interest, but he’s also already received a number of offers.
A source tells PSN the following schools have extended an offer to Morgan since he officially entered the portal: Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, Indiana, Colorado, Appalachian State, Memphis, Buffalo and Akron.
In terms of a timeline, Morgan plans on enrolling at his new home in January, so he and his family will sit down in the near future to start discussing which schools might be a good fit, while also being patient to allow more programs to offer.
Since he’s already earned two degrees from Pitt, Morgan doesn’t feel the need to spend an entire weekend while visiting and considering a school. It’s going to be more about making a visit, talking with the coaches and learning about their system and how they plan on using him. The bells and whistles that go with an official visit weekend isn’t going to be needed for Morgan.
Morgan ended his Pitt career with 76 career tackles, 14.5 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. His best statistical season came in the 2021 ACC-title winning season, as he registered 26 tackles and 5.5 sacks.
