Morgan had solid career numbers completing just over 57 percent of his passes for 8,654 passing yards with a touchdown to interception ratio of 65 to 34. His past two seasons at FIU were a different story as he absolutely dominated the competition and boosted his draft stock.
Morgan completed 61.5 percent of his passes for 5,312 passing yards with a touchdown to interception ratio of 40 to 12. He also added an additional three rushing touchdowns, showing he has a little mobility.
Tallying over 15 college football awards and accolades, the young quarterback broke seven major FIU passing records including most passing touchdowns in a season and highest pass efficiency on his way to the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine invitation.
At the combine, Morgan ran a 4.89 forty-yard dash, a 7.51 L-Cone drill, and a 4.64 twenty-yard shuttle. Morgan also had a 29-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-4 broad jump. James Morgan would be a great quarterback to bring in and compete with Taysom Hill for the starting job in 2021.
