On Wednesday, 4-star (HV Rating: 90.0) running back Sevion Morrison‍ signed his letter of intent to play for Nebraska. 

The Edison (Oklahoma) runner was an early evaluation victory for the Huskers. Nebraska was his first scholarship offer. That eye for talent paid off for the staff to get a jump start in his recruitment. It also helped that Morrison loved the offensive fit for him in Lincoln. 

“Man, I think it’s perfect honestly,” Morrison said. “The way Coach [Scott] Frost uses his running backs, they do everything. They go from the slot, to empty running out the backfield, to the pitch on the option. They do everything. You won’t be the running back just running up the hole, it’s an all-around back.”

Morrison broke Spencer Tillman’s school record for career rushing yards that stood for 37 years. 

The Oklahoma native is an all-around running back that can thrive in this conference. 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. 

“Vision. He sees the field differently,” Daniels said. “He can cut on a dime or lower the shoulder and run you over.”

There are snaps to be had next season at running back for Nebraska. Beyond Dedrick Mills, no one has a solid spot behind him. Morrison and incoming Florida freshman Marvin Scott III will have an opportunity to work into the rotation. Morrison is highly competitive and wants to be great. He will continue pushing the running back room forward with increased competition. 

Which is just the way running backs coach Ryan Held like things.
