Meanwhile, Xavier Smith is a graduated senior at Missouri that will fit under the NCAA graduated senior transfer rule. The 5-11, 190-pound Smith is originally from Edmond North High School and was an All-District and All-Big City cornerback.
Smith, who graduated in communications at Missouri, did not show any defensive stats from last season. During the 2012 season he played in nine games and had four tackles. He also played in nine games in 2011 and finished with three tackles. Smith chose Missouri over TCU, Colorado State, Washington State, and Tulsa.
Morgan will be a freshman and is also likely to be eligible immediately. The 6-4, 255-pound former high school offensive lineman turned tight end enrolled early at Ole Miss before suffering a knee injury during spring practice. He was committed at one point to Florida State.
He sat out last season and is now at Oklahoma State. His senior season in high school he caught 31 passes for 497 yards and 5 touchdowns. He had 16 receptions for 226 yards as a junior.
The expectation is both athletes will work out with the team over the summer and prepare for practice in August.
