#39 Cameron Morgan
Redshirt Sophomore
5-9 | 194
Omaha, Neb.


Position: Safety

Previous College: None

Projection: Scout Team

Status: Preferred Walk-On

Cameron Andrew Morgan (b. Nov. 14, 1993) is a preferred walk-on quarterback-turned-safety we plucked out of the state of Nebraska. He attracted interest, although not scholarship offers, from Kansas State, Nebraska and UCLA.

He set the Nebraska Class A state record for most touchdowns in a game in 2009 at six (tied with San Diego's Danny Woodhead) and also took his baseball team to the state championship, playing second base and pitcher.

Morgan totaled 2,332 career rushing yards and 45 touchdowns, while also throwing for 23 career touchdowns. He earned honorable mention all-district honors as a sophomore and junior, and was all-district as a senior.

Morgan, who redshirted in 2012 and did not see any game action in 2013, also is an active volunteer with the United Way, Walk for Autism and the American Lung Association. He was on the high school honor roll all four years.

Expect Morgan to be on the scout team and maybe special teams, but with our history of turning walk-on quarterbacks into safeties and eventually awarding them scholarships, he might make an impact down the road.
