BERKELEY - The Cal men's golf program has signed Andrew Morgan (Long Beach, CA/Woodrow Wilson HS) to a National Letter of Intent to join its 2011-12 recruiting class. Morgan joins a foursome of Walker Huddy (Studio City, CA/Calabasas HS), Keelan Kilpatrick (Christchurch, New Zealand/St. Bede's College), Cameron Shaw (Duffield, Derbyshire, England) and James Yoon that signed last November. Kilpatrick began his Cal career in January of 2012 while the other four will arrive on campus in the fall of 2012.
"Andrew is a welcome addition to the program," head coach Steve Desimone said. "He's a tough competitor, works very hard on his game and fits the Cal golf mode perfectly. We're fortunate to have him, and I know he'll fit right in."
Morgan, son of Dan and Sandy Morgan, had a strong 2011 calendar year when he was named the Long Beach Century Club Athlete of the Year for golf. His year was highlighted by a fourth-place finish as the top amateur at the Long Beach Open (72-68-72-68 - 280). He also added individual medalist honors at the Moore League Championship (72-70-72-72 - 284) to lead his prep squad to a conference title. Other highlights included a fifth-place showing at the U.S. Junior Amateur (73-67 - 140) and an eighth-place finish at the California State Junior Amateur (70-70-76 - 216).
The four-year high school letterwinner is a three-time member of the Press-Telegram Dream team and has also been a first-team All-Moore League selection on three occasions. (2009, '10, '11). He has added team MVP honors twice (2010, '11) during a prep career in which he has been a match medalist 20 times. Morgan is the captain of his 2012 squad.
