Classroom

Morgan is on pace to finish his bachelor’s degree in advertising by the end of his senior season.

Character

Morgan was a unanimous selection as a co-captain of this year’s Michigan State basketball team.

Community

Morgan, along with his teammates, is a regular visitor at area hospitals and schools.  He is also part of initiatives where kids burdened with cancer are given candy from the team on Halloween at a local Toys R Us.  The team also adopts a needy family each Christmas, buys them gifts, wraps them and finally delivers the gifts to the family.

Competition

Morgan is a 2009-10 preseason candidate for the John R. Wooden Award, given annually to the most outstanding men’s and women’s college basketball players.  Through three seasons he is averaging 12.0 points per game and 5.6 rebounds per game and has the opportunity to finish in the top 10 in Michigan State history in both statistical categories.  His best season came in 2007-08 when he averaged 14.0 points and 6.1 rebounds, earning second-team All-Big Ten honors.  Last season, he was on his way to a Big Ten MVP-type season, averaging 15.2 points per game and 6.9 rebounds per game through the season’s first 16 games.  Unfortunately, Morgan suffered through injuries and illnesses for a majority of the rest of the season, playing more than 20 minutes in just eight of the team’s final 22 games.
