I can't say for sure if either of those scenarios is true. But if there's a five-star prospect in Baltimore, Maryland has to extend a scholarship offer. There's pressure on the program to go after highly touted locals, even if the coaches disagree with national evaluators. Morgan, meanwhile, probably would've faced unrealistic expectations had he decided to stay close to home for college. "It's a lot of pressure put on a hometown kid to go to a hometown school," Morgan said during his news conference Wednesday. UNLV fans will expect a lot from him, but it'll be different 2,500 miles away from home vs. 40. And for what it's worth, I've heard that Morgan and his mother bonded more with UNLV's staff.
