STARKVILLE, Miss. – T.J. Morgan will join the Mississippi State men’s golf team for the 2013-14 season, as announced by coach Clay Homan Wednesday.

Originally from Calhoun City, Miss., Morgan transfers to MSU after playing the last two seasons at Meridian Community College.

“We are excited to welcome T.J. to our team,” Homan said. “He is a talented player that has great experience playing at a championship level with MCC. He’s a solid addition that adds talent and depth to our lineup.”

The two-time All-America selection fired a 7-under-par 281 at the 2013 NJCAA DI National Championship to tie for medalist but eventually bowed out to eventual national champion Akse Olsen of Wallace State Community College in a playoff.

Morgan also posted nine top-10 finishes and led the Eagles to their fifth-consecutive NJCAA DI National Championship appearance during his sophomore campaign.

He was also named to the GCAA All-Region Team in 2012 as a freshman.

Morgan was a two-time MHSAA Class 2A State Champion at Bruce High School before signing with then-MCC head coach and current MSU assistant coach Sean Covich.

He will join incoming freshmen Ben Follett Smith, Jackson Dick and Johnny Newnham as newcomers on the 2013-14 Bulldog roster.
