New Jersey back has two offers

Somerset (N.J.) Franklin running back Kye Morgan is a prospect to keep an eye on.

The Class of 2012 prospect has already picked up verbal offers from Boston College and Rutgers.

"Rutgers (offered) before Christmas and Boston College was just like two days ago," Morgan said. "I had been talking to them for a while but it's still surprising."

The 5-foot-10, 165-pound running back from Franklin is taking a proactive approach to the recruiting process.

"I've visited Rutgers and I was supposed to visit Boston College a couple of weeks ago but the weather was bad. It was snowing," he recalled. "I'm supposed to be going to Boston College in a few weeks now.

"Rutgers was nice. I liked Rutgers. I liked the coaches and the facilities."

Though he is listed as a running back, Morgan said the Scarlet Knights and Eagles are recruiting him as an athlete with the potential to play on either side of the ball.

In addition to those two schools, Morgan has been hearing from UConn, Georgia and Virginia.

"I like all of them," he said, denying that he has any favorites.
