Name: Semaj Morgan
180 lbs.
High school: 
West Bloomfield (MI) West Bloomfield
Wide receiver
Jersey number: 
Last year:
Morgan was a senior in high school (LINK). He caught 43 passes for 733 yards and 14 touchdowns; he also threw 5 touchdowns as a backup quarterback.
TTB Rating:

Morgan was a key component of the 2023 recruiting class as the second verbal in the class, following only kicker Adam Samaha. He was a consistent recruiter and constantly at Michigan recruiting events throughout the cycle. As a football player, he was always impressively tough in 7v7 and actual football games, despite being a little undersized at 5’10”. His ability to make catches in traffic and bounce off tacklers should serve him well in the future.

Morgan lacks elite speed, but his toughness and strength may serve him well as a possession receiver. I also think he could have value as a punt returner. Michigan needs to replace A.J. Henning at that spot, and while trusting a freshman to return punts is a bit scary, there aren’t a ton of upperclassman options. I think Morgan will start to get his feet wet a little bit this year, perhaps to groom him for a larger special teams role in 2024. I don’t think he will ever become a dynamic starting receiver, but he could be a consistent, reliable player for the Wolverines.

Prediction: Backup wide receiver
