Bio

Position: Defensive Back

Previous College: None

Projection: Second-String

Status: On Scholarship

Morgan Burns (b. May 19, 1993) was the No. 14 player in the state of Kansas in 2010, according to Rivals.com, but we chose to grayshirt him in 2011 in order for him to gain more weight and get a jump on college classes.

A three-time all-league pick at both defensive back and running back, and a two-time all-metro selection, Burns rushed for 2,700 yards and 36 touchdowns during his last two seasons at Trinity Academy.

During his senior season, Burns rushed for more than 1,400 yards and 10 touchdowns on offense, while recording 60 tackles and 10 interceptions from the defensive backfield.

He also (and this is most important) was a state champion in track in the 100-, 200- and 400-meter races, because he is fast as hell. That's probably the primary reason Burns did not redshirt in 2012, tallying 11 tackles in 12 games.

Burns appeared primarily on special teams last season, but expect that to change. He's too fast not to be a part of the regular rotation at safety or cornerback. He had 4.5 tackles and a pass breakup in the spring game.
