Looks like I’m a few days behind on this news because the Instagram algorithm didn’t bring FIU golfer Hannah Leiner’s pics to the top of my feed. Turns out she revealed this week that she’s dating new Jets quarterback James Morgan, who was drafted in the 4th round by the team (his stats don’t exactly jump off the page). This guy went from being a Bowling Green quarterback to FIU quarterback to dating one of the more powerful golf influencers on Instagram. That’s a pretty huge rise up the charts for the guy.
And here you have a new power couple headed to the Big Apple once things open up in New Jersey and they can get settled into life as one of Sam Darnold’s backups and possibly Darnold’s replacement if this season turns into a disaster. It’s a great time to be James Morgan. Did I mention this guy got his pre-law degree from BGSU in three years? As for Hannah, she’s now within striking distance of that magical 100k follower mark and that should happen relatively fast now that Jets fans are hearing she’s part of the team.
FIU hasn’t updated her golfer profile, but it appears Hannah is finishing up her junior season. Now the NCAA has stopped being idiots and they’re allowing athletes to be compensated for their likeness. Not sure how that’ll open her up for sponsorships, but it’s a great time to be in a spot like Hannah finds herself. Sign a couple of likeness deals, play golf on pristine courses, catch a Jets game here and there and live it up in her early 20s. Insane time to be alive.
