Morgan has been a heralded prospect for years, playing in the Under Armour Game as a rising sophomore and playing on the Canadian National Team and Langley Blaze. Morgan looks the part in a uniform with a major league body at a muscular 6-foot-4, 231 pounds. The righthanded-hitter has above-average bat speed and his raw power ranks among the best in the class with a 70 grade. His ability to get to that power remains in question with serious swing and miss concerns. A pull-oriented hitter, Morgan's pitch recognition has improved this spring but he struggles with secondary stuff and expanding the zone. His speed has slowed to a well below-average runner, limiting him to a corner. His arm can be inconsistent but flashes plus, leaving some to believe he fits the classic right field profile. Others have seen an average arm that fits best in left, while his athleticism should allow him to be a solid defender at either position. Young for the class, Morgan is committed to North Carolina State.
