Scouts, Inc Evaluation
Morgan is a pocket passer in the spread offense that possesses ideal measurables and is a well built prospect. He is in a shotgun offense where he dinks and dunks, but also will roll out, throw on the move and will make his fair share of throws from within the pocket to intermediate ranges of the field. He shows good arm strength, not elite, but possesses good RPM’s and when set and balanced, will plant and deliver with good power and velocity. Throws very well on the move and shows good zip on throws to the sideline when rolling to his right. He is an adequate athlete for the position, but is not much of a threat with his legs. Needs to be protected and use his arm, feet and timing to beat the rush and avoid pressure. He can change ball speeds and shows very nice touch on the deep ball and throws within the red area that needs to be dropped in over coverage. There are times when he looks like an authoritative, strong passer with big throws from the opposite hash to the sideline and he can get hot and shows nice rhythm. However, there are moments with Morgan where his accuracy is inconsistent. He will miss the strike zone when he should not. His overall throwing mechanics are a bit unorthodox, will wind-up just a bit. Pats the ball in the pocket. He isn’t always consistent with his release. We would like to see what type of footwork he can show when having to drop from center and work through progressions in the three and five step passing game. Is a little like Moses Alipate from the 2009 class. Overall, Morgan is a legitimate Division I prospect with good size and upside to develop and become more polished as a passer. He possesses the physical tools to succeed.
