There is a ton going on around the Nebraska football program right now.
Cornhuskers AD Bill Moos has “cleaned house,” leaving just Trent Bray as the interim coach. For current players on the team, it can be a lot to take in.
Their former coach is gone, the coordinator they worked the most with may be gone and position coach may be gone as well. For WR Stanley Morgan, who is a junior, he has one year left of eligibility as a Cornhusker.
While he does have that year remaining, it isn’t all that rare to see talented juniors in college football elect to go into the following NFL Draft. That may in fact be the case with Morgan, though, nothing is official yet.
On Sunday night, he took to social media:
I LOVE Nebraksa, new coach & offense my senior year is scary
And ESPECIALLY not having Dubb @wideouts, he’s the reason I’ve turned into the person/player I am now in the first place. I know the change was business so maybe I should make a business decision now too.

As just a junior, Morgan has set numerous records while at Nebraska. Single season receiving yardage being just one of them. He also ranks fifth in all-time receiving yardage.
If Morgan were to forego his senior season, there likely wouldn’t be many blaming him. He has accomplished a lot at Nebraska, and while winning a national championship may not have happened, will next season be that year with a bunch of new coaches surrounding him?
Only time will tell, but Morgan’s post on social media certainly means the 6-foot-1 play-maker is thinking about moving on to the highest level of football.
Related: Before this past season began, he was regarded as a 2nd-4th round prospect by some.
