Nebraska vs. Iowa, 11/24/17

Nebraska wide receiver Stanley Morgan (8) makes a one-handed touchdown catch against Iowa in November at Memorial Stadium. Morgan had a school-record 986 yards receiving last season.

Stanley Morgan's decision to return to Nebraska for his senior season figured to rank among one of the biggest offseason wins for first-year head coach Scott Frost as soon as Morgan made the call in early January. 

That sentiment only grew through spring football as the staff got its eyes on the 6-foot-1 senior and its collective mind around the ways Morgan could be used in Frost's offensive system. 

"No, Morgan is not the son of the former NFL receiver of the same name," Reuter wrote. "But he has an NFL future, to be sure, as he possesses the speed, size and physicality to win inside and outside at the next level. Morgan will need new Huskers head coach Scott Frost to develop a new quarterback this summer in order to maximize the receiver's talents in his senior season.

That won't be the last accolade for the New Orleans native before the season begins.
