Stanley Morgan commits to Nebraska

Nebraska fans have been waiting for the commitment drought to end and it did today in a big way. One of the top players in New Orleans, as well as in the state of Louisiana, has chosen the Huskers over some of the top programs in the nation.

Nebraska hosted Stanley Morgan for his official visit in late September and were down in Louisiana to see him play a week later on their bye. Today, the 6-foot-1 and 180-pound wide receiver from New Orleans (La.) St. Augustine committed to Nebraska per WWLTV (CBS affiliate in New Orleans).

"When I went through the academic tour, it really showed me that I could be more than just football," Morgan told WWLTV on Friday night.

"I like the fit on offense," Morgan said following his official visit to Nebraska in September. "They are not selfish. When they can run they will run and when they can pass they will pass. They like me as a "X", but I think that I can play both spots."

Morgan was holding a number of offers from some of the top teams around the nation, including: Mississippi State, Ohio State, UCLA, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee and others. Morgan currently has 33 receptions for 572 yards receiving and has four touchdowns.

The Nebreaska tunnel walk always startles recruits when the fans know the recruits names. Morgan was no exception.

"Coming out of the tunnel walk there were people there that knew our names that we didn't even know. I loved their crowd. It was amazing," said Morgan in September. "I loved their facilities. I really liked the stadium and their fans. It was crazy."
