Morrison was a highly-touted recruit from Tulsa, Oklahoma where he ran for over 5,000 yards during his high school career. He played in seven games this season in the Huskers backfield, but was not able to earn a spot ahead of Rahmir Johnson or Jaquez Yant. Morrison ends his Huskers career with 116 yards on 30 carries. Against Fordham, he had 9 carries for 31 yards and 2 touchdowns.
During B1G play, Morrison only had 12 carries and never entered games against Ohio State, Purdue or Michigan.
While Frost was not able to confirm Morrison had entered the NCAA transfer portal, a tweet from the running back later confirmed the move.
