Two weeks ago, Plano, Texas tight end Christian Morgan visited Florida State for the Jimbo Fisher Football Camp. It was his final college visit of the summer. He called the visit to Tallahassee "outstanding" and planned to go home and think about a decision. His choices came down to FSU, Baylor, Ole Miss and Arkansas.
On Tuesday evening, Morgan's recruitment came to an end, announcing that he has committed to Florida State.
"The staff from FSU actually knew about the decision after my visit last weekend. I told Coach Coley I was going to be a Seminole," Morgan said. "He was very excited even though he was on vacation in Miami."
His decision ultimately came down to FSU and Baylor - the home school against the school he visited last. Morgan told Warchant.com it was comfort at FSU that won him over. He felt at home in every possible way when he spent a couple of days on FSU's campus, which included him attending the Stanford-FSU super regional baseball series.
"I just realized that FSU was the place for me. The opportunity there it just gave me everything I need all in one place," said Morgan, the No. 14 ranked player at his position. "The people at Florida State were special and I just really loved the city of Tallahassee. It's a great college town. It just has a little bit of everything."
Morgan's high school head coach, Chris Cunningham coincidentally coached a former Florida State player, Christian Ponder. He talks about how his tight end has very similar qualities to his former quarterback.
"He's started every football game for us since he was a freshman. Christian has always put the team first. That's just the type of kid he is. He started off playing offensive tackle and won a state championship," said Cunningham. "I think it's exciting because Christian fits well into FSU's pro-style offense. He never feels comfortable out there, he is always pushing to improve himself. He is never satisfied."
Morgan is Florida State's thirteenth commitment for the 2013 recruiting class.
