In front of friends, family, friends and classmates in the GHS gymnasium, Robbins, a senior, signed his letter with Air Force and Morgan, a senior, signed with Baylor.

“This is a huge day for Guthrie High School,” boys head coach Ric Meshew said. “This is the first time ever we’ve had two Division I golfers sign at the same time.”

Robbins finished fourth overall in the 2018 state tournament, including the lowest score of the day in the final 18 holes, a two-time all-conference player, 2018 Suburban Conference champion and qualified for the state amateur.

Morgan is a three-time all conference player and a three-time all-region player. In 2017, he was the individual state runner-up, third in 2018 and the individual champion in 2019.

This past summer, Morgan qualified and played in the U.S. Junior Amateur.

Baylor head coach Mike McGraw says Morgan is the first player from Oklahoma he has brought to Waco.

“Luke is the first player I have signed from Oklahoma, my long-time home, so that is special to me. He is also a very gifted athlete, which I think is a great benefit.”

“I’m really proud of these guys,” Meshew said in closing. “I’m looking forward to seeing them play this spring and onto the next level.”

Robbins and Morgan join a small, elite group of GHS student-athletes to be teammates and go on to play Division I athletics. Part of the short list, includes Blake Belcher, Kentrell Brothers and Evan Plagg, Josh Chappell and Brent Hodge, Kyle Smith and David Washington, Shannon Young and Shavon Young, Malyssa Thorngren and Tamara Gracey and Toby Smith and Joey Jackson.
