Morgan, a 6-foot-6 pass-catcher out of Massillon, Ohio, transferred to Kentucky back in February. After failing to register a snap the entire 2021 season, he’s now exploring his options once again.
Rivals.com was the first to break the news.
Morgan, a former four-star recruit out of high school, dealt with a nagging hamstring issue throughout the fall. When healthy, he also temporarily worked out with the tight ends in hopes of working his way into the lineup.
With UK offensive coordinator Liam Coen putting a greater emphasis on speed than size on the outside, Morgan’s fit moving forward was in question. Today’s news confirms that concern.
Back in high school, Morgan was rated as the No. 1 wide receiver in Ohio by Rivals and ESPN and a top-75 player at his position by Rivals (No. 44) and 247Sports (No. 73). He finished his senior campaign with 691 yards and 12 touchdowns on 37 catches.
At Michigan State, the 6-foot-6 receiver redshirted as a true freshman in 2019 before seeing action in three of the Spartans’ seven games during a COVID-shortened 2020 season. He totaled two catches for 46 yards and a score.
Now, Morgan will again explore his transfer options, opening up a scholarship for Kentucky to find another pass-catcher in the portal.
