Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft High School added another elite alum.
While many schools may never field an Army All-American, D.J. Morgan becomes the third selection in the game's 10-year history from Taft.
Following the footsteps of Jamere Holland and Steve Smith, Morgan was officially selected to the event an hour before practice Wednesday afternoon.
Morgan, an USC commitment, is ranked as the nation's No. 3 all-purpose back and the No. 64 player overall in the country. He joins an elite group of talented California prospects that have already been selected to play in the prestigious All-American Bowl. Along with Morgan, Ronald Powell, Dillon Baxter, Tony Jefferson and Josh Shirley are playing in the game.
Powell, Baxter, Jefferson and Morgan all rank in the top 10 in California and several other members in that top 10 will be announced as part of the game at a later date.
But Wednesday was all about Morgan, and this Rivals.com video feature talks more about the event and Taft's special relationship with the Army Bowl.
Morgan will be one of the showcase stars in the in the 10th anniversary of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 9 at the Alamodome in San Antonio. The game kicks off at noon CST and will be broadcast nationally by NBC.
