Cameron Morrah excited to be a Wildcat

Defensive end Cameron Morrah, K-State's second verbal so far, grew up a Southern California fan but now sees nothing but purple on the horizon.

As a child he wore Southern California garb and rooted for the Trojans every game day.

Oh how things have changed for Cameron Morrah since those days. Just ask Kansas State which received a verbal commitment from the 6-foot-4 240 pound defensive end from California.

Morrah, the Wildcats' second commitment so far, was also recruited heavily by USC, Nebraska, and Washington State.

His older brother Eric, a walk-on at K-State, had a lot to do with his early decision to join the Wildcats.

"When we were little we talked about it a lot," he said of hopefully playing with his brother. "When I visited there over spring break, I just liked everything I saw, the community, the people there, the coaches. And with my brother there, it just seems like the best decision for me."

For Morrah, making such an early decision is something that came quite easy, and for good reason, he said.

"I feel really good about my choice," said Morrah, who had 60 tackles and nine sacks last season. "I just felt real comfortable there on the visit, met a lot of good people. I'm happy was able to get it out of the though because now I won't have to go through the ongoing process of not knowing where I'm going, nervous in my games because there's someone watching me. I feel great about it all."

Morrah is a speedy pass-rushing defensive end that actually plays receiver in high school too. Though currently at 220 pounds because of basketball and track, he plans to get back to his playing weight and wants to work on his quickness off the ball for this next season. Coaches have already told him that he might see some time as a freshman, but if not, almost certain by his second season.

"I think I'll fit in well," he said. "I think I'm a good pass-rushing defensive end and they always have good ones there. They're aggressive in what they do so I think I can fit in pretty good into their system. I love their defense."

Morrah, who also scored two touchdowns last season on an interception and fumble recovery, plans to take an official visit to K-State in the fall, but no others.
