Morgan: National Championship Dreams

Davon Morgan

Richmond, Virginia safety prospect Davon Morgan made his verbal commitment known this evening at Breakers Sports Bar and Grille in Richmond and made the home-state fans in attendance very happy in the process.

"I committed to Virginia Tech," Davon Morgan said. "It has been a done deal for awhile now. I told the coaches that I was going to commit during the Senior Camp on July 7th or 8th. After that, it was just a matter of when I would have my press conference."

The 6-foot-0, 186-pound product of Varina High School continues the hot streak for Virginia Tech after picking up verbal commitments from tight end Greg Nosal and defensive end Justin Young on Tuesday.

Morgan chose Virginia Tech over Michigan and Tennessee. "It all came down to the fact that Virginia Tech made me feel at home and the coaches were just really cool," Morgan said.

Morgan plays quarterback and safety for Varina High School in Richmond but the Hokies have already told him where he will play once he steps foot on campus. "I am going to be a safety at Tech," Morgan said.

As for any official visits, Morgan has not set up his visit to Virginia Tech at this time. "I don't know if I will take any other visits, but I will definitely take an official visit to Virginia Tech of course," Morgan said. "I just don't know which game I will take my official visit at. I am also going to be up at Tech on August 3rd I think for the first day of practice."

Morgan also has one message for Hokie fans out there. "Let's go Hokies," Morgan said. "We are going to try to win a national championship!"

Morgan reports a junior season in which he threw for 1,402 yards, with 20 touchdowns and six interceptions. He had 505 yards rushing and eight touchdowns. On defense he reports 30 tackles and nine interceptions - three of which he returned for touchdowns. He said he also took a recovered fumble back for a score. Recommended Stories
