SIGNING DAY 2015: Two Purple Hurricanes sign with D-1 schools

Two standouts from Fitzgerald High School signed football scholarships on Wednesday morning.

Ryan Davis will be a long snapper at South Alabama, and Gerald Morgan signed a letter of intent at Appalachian State.

Morgan played quarterback at Fitzgerald, but will move to safety in college. He considers it his more natural position and he's excited to fulfill his dream of playing Division-1 football.

"We ran just about the same defense as they did," Morgan said. "And I'm used to safety."

Davis played on the line with the Purple Hurricanes, but knew his future was in long snapping.

"All the other schools were beating around the bush," Davis said. "South Alabama just jumped on."
