Wide receiver Stanley Morgan became the latest to join Nebraska's list of 2015 recruits when he announced Friday he would become a Husker.

Morgan, a four-star recruit from St. Augustine High School in Louisiana, has been sidelined two weeks with a shoulder injury.

Before the injury, Morgan had 46 catches for 891 yards and eight touchdowns. That followed his junior season, when he caught 66 passes for 1,077 yards and 13 scores.

St. Augustine lost to Jesuit 34-20 in district play Friday. The two teams will meet again in the first round of the state playoffs this week.
