Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a senior with rushing totals of 236 attempts/1186 yards/9 TDs and 15/139/1 receiving. Junior ground totals included 227/928/7. Posted career-best totals of 236/1392/11 as a sophomore.
Positives: Tough, grind-it-out ballcarrier who is best on the inside. Runs North/South, displays vision and patiently waits for blocks to develop. Keeps his feet moving on contact, drives up the field and displays the ability to pick up yardage off initial contact. Will pick and choose his spots on the inside. Effective blocker who recognizes assignments, squares into defenders and removes them from the action. Adequate receiver out of the backfield.
Negatives: Not a creative runner who will make something out of nothing. Loses momentum when he must immediately change direction or get through the cutback lanes. Minimal burst and long speed.
Analysis: Morris is a tough and smart football player who lacks the size and speed for the next level. He does the little things well and could catch on as a fourth back for an NFL team.
