LINCOLN, Neb. – After a strong fall camp, Nebraska true freshman Stanley Morgan got his first chance at action on Saturday against BYU.
Morgan registered two catches for 19 yards and also had a punt return.
“Surprisingly I didn’t mess up on any of my assignments, so I did pretty well,” said Morgan. “It came natural.”
Before taking the field, quarterback Tommy Armstrong had a chat with the former Louisiana prep.
“Don’t be nervous. People mess up,” said Morgan, when asked what Armstrong said. “Let everything come to me.”
Morgan was a player first mentioned at Big Ten Media Days by peers as someone who was standing out during summer workouts.
“In the summer I was a learner. I didn’t try to go in front of anybody else,” said Morgan. “I kept just working hard.”
Expect to see the true freshman become a bigger part of the offense as the season moves on.
