Morris, 6-foot-3, 233 pounds, was in the heat of a very intense quarterback battle prior to the 2015 season. He stayed in the race for much of summer and fall practice before falling behind Cooper Bateman and the eventual winner, Jacob Coker.
He totaled one pass of six yards in eight games at Alabama, despite being a part of three Southeastern Conference titles and two national championships.
