5 Thoughts on the Commitment of 3-star RB Sevion Morrison

August 21, 2019

On Wednesday, 3-star (HV Rating: 85.7) running back Sevion Morrison‍ committed to Nebraska. The Oklahoma native became the ninth known member of the Huskers’ 2020 recruiting class after choosing Nebraska over Arkansas and Missouri. Morrison is a complete running back that will make a fine addition to running backs coach Ryan Held’s group. 

Here are five quick thoughts on the commitment.

Highly Productive Runner

It can be difficult to judge how good high school running backs are. There are many factors that go into projecting how good a prospect will be down the road. But, when a prospect racks up 2,761 rushing yards and 38 total touchdowns in a season you must take notice. Morrison has been quite productive during his high school career. He has even bigger goals for his senior season. Morrison wants 75 total touchdowns this season.

Another Oklahoma Native

Oklahoma has become an interesting state for Nebraska recruiting. Since coach Scott Frost and his staff have taken over the program there has been an increased focus on the Sooner State. Last recruiting cycle, the team signed Demariyon Houston and Jamie Nance. After adding a pledge from Morrison, the Huskers will turn their attention towards several 2020 and 2021 Oklahoma targets left on the board.

Not Done at RB

The addition of Morrison doesn’t mean Nebraska is done at running back for this class. Despite strong running back recruiting over the last two years, Nebraska always planned on taking a pair of backs this cycle. The leading candidate to fill that second slot is Florida 3-star (HV Rating: 85.8) Marvin Scott III. He told Hail Varsity that announcement is coming this weekend. 

Great Fit for Offense

Standing at 5-foot-11, 195-pounds, Morrison has a great frame with room to grow. In talking to his coach Tony Daniels, he highlighted Morrison’s vision as a key trait that makes him great. In the highlight below you can see the full set of skills that he brings to the table.

Morrison has good hands and can flex out into the slot if needed. He’s a complete running back.

Keep Recruiting Him

Since Frost and his staff took over the program there have been very few players that have decommitted. There have been even less players that have taken official visits elsewhere after committing to Nebraska. With Morrison there are two schools to watch. First, Wisconsin offered him recently which has the running back’s interest. Secondly, he grew up a big Oklahoma fan. While the Sooners have not offered him it would be a game changer if they did.
