Scott Mason talks with FIU sports writer David Drucker about former FIU QB and Jets 4th round pick “Captain” James Morgan as well as Niner Times sports editor Sam Palian and Niner Times lead football writer Cooper Metts in regards to the UNC-Charlotte career of Jets 4th round pick, OL Cameron Clark!
First, we talk with David to get a look at Morgan’s FIU days as we hear about the QBs beginnings as a grad transfer from Bowling Green, what he is like as a person, his ongoing development as a player, what it was like to get to know and watch Morgan up close and see his arm on full display, the relationship between the young QB and his coaches, teammates and local community, an interesting anecdote about Morgan and Jets Head Coach Adam Gase, and what should be expected of the Captain once he gets to NY.
Then Sam and Cooper join the show to talk about Morgan including his physical dominance, what led him to UNC-Charlotte, how he became the team’s offensive MVP as a redshirt freshman despite only starting half the team’s games that season, rare leadership qualities for a OL that led to him being voted a team captain, the Clemson performance that got him noticed and several other notable games his final collegiate season, how he would fare in adjusting to New York, likelihood of him reaching the expectations talent evaluators have for him at the NFL level, and much more!
