Sevion Morrison

Tulsa native Sevion Morrison, who verbally committed to Nebraska, also had offers from Arkansas, Washington, Baylor and Wisconsin.

It wasn't the final result Sevion Morrison (Tulsa, Oklahoma) was hoping for.

But the Nebraska running back was gashing the opposing defense in Edison's season opener againstĀ Sapulpa (a 21-13 Edison loss) on Friday.

Morrison, a Nebraska running back recruit, rushed for 182 yards on 26 carries. He scored on an 87-yard run down the sideline early in the second half. He also scored a 14-yard touchdown on his team's opening drive.

Morrison needs 18 yards to set the school's career rushing record. He has 3,992.

Another Husker recruit had a huge game Friday.

William Nixon (Waco, Texas) will play wide receiver at Nebraska, but Midway is taking advantage of his running skills.

Nixon rushed for 252 yards and three touchdowns on 29 carries in Midway's 42-33 loss to Lake Ridge. Nixon also caught seven passes for 32 yards.
