Before Nebraska (Edison HS)
Morrison was a star running back for Edison High School in Oklahoma, where he set the school record for career rushing yards.
Morrison ran for more than 5,000 yards at Edison High School, becoming the school’s all-time leading rusher early in his senior season. Morrison broke the previous record (4,009) held by Spencer Tillman, who went on to become an All-America running back at Oklahoma and a Super Bowl champion with the San Francisco 49ers. As a senior, Morrison had 183 carries for 1,798 yards, averaging nearly 10 yards per carry while scoring 26 touchdowns. He also caught eight passes for 276 yards and three touchdowns and was named the district offensive player of the year in addition to winning the Ford Award as the player of the year in Northeast Oklahoma.
Morrison was the state’s leading rusher as a junior, rushing for 2,728 yards with 39 total touchdowns while averaging 12.8 yards per carry to help the Eagles reach the state playoffs for the first time in four years. He also caught seven passes for 205 yards and averaged 27.2 yards on five punt returns. He was named to the Tulsa World all-state first team as a junior, and he was also one of five finalists for the organization’s offensive player-of-the-year award. Morrison also rushed for more than 1,000 yards as a sophomore, when he was an honorable-mention all-state pick.
Morrison, who had two dozen scholarship offers, chose the Huskers over Baylor, Kansas State, Minnesota, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin, among others. A consensus four-star recruit, Morrison was ranked among the nation’s top 250 overall recruits and among the top 15 running backs by Rivals, while 247Sports listed him among the nation’s top 300 recruits and top 25 running backs.
Sevion is the son of Marco Morrison and Latoya Wilson and was born on Aug. 10, 2002. He is a criminology and criminal justice major.
