Youngstown State Men’s Basketball Adds Transfer Devin Morgan

Devin Morgan from Delaware State University has signed a grant-in-aid agreement to play men's basketball at Youngstown State University, Head Coach Jerrod Calhoun announced Tuesday.

Morgan, a 5-foot-10 junior guard from Chester, Va., must sit out the 2017-18 season due to NCAA transfer rules and will have two years of eligibility remaining.

"Devin is a young man that I have a great relationship with," Calhoun said. "I think it's a great fit because he can learn our system for a year and push Francisco (Santiago) every day and make each other better.

"He really fits our system. He can get up and down the court and he's a scoring point guard, but a willing passer. He can really shoot the three."

Last season, Morgan was named All-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Third-Team after averaging 14.4 points and 3.3 assists per game. He led the team and ranked 13th in the MEAC in scoring. Morgan also ranked eighth in assists per game, second in free-throw percentage (.894) and third in 3-pointers made per game (2.7). He made 86 3-pointers last season, which rank fourth on the school's single-season list.

Morgan scored 460 points as a sophomore and reached double figures in scoring 24 times, including six 20-point games.

As a freshman, Morgan was named the MEAC Rookie of the Year and led the Hornets in scoring with 12.2 points per game. He also posted 2.7 assists per game and made 70 3-pointers.

In two seasons at Delaware State, Morgan scored 833 points in 63 games for an average of 13.2 points per game and made 156 3-pointers.

Morgan joins Naz Bohannon (Lorain, Ohio), Jacob Brown (Clemmons, N.C.) and Garrett Covington (Carmel, Ind.) in the 2017-18 recruiting class.
