Oklahoma Lands Former North Carolina DB via Transfer Portal

Experienced and versatile defensive back Trey Morrison announced his commitment to Oklahoma.

Secondary help is on the way to Norman.

Veteran defensive back Trey Morrison announced his intentions to transfer from North Carolina to Oklahoma on Monday.

The 5-foot-9, 190-pound Morrison will use his final year of eligibility in Norman after spending the last four seasons in Chapel Hill, where he made a name for himself.

An honorable mention All-ACC selection in 2020, Morrison brings a wealth of experience to an OU defensive backs room that must fill the loss of veteran safeties Delarrin Turner-Yell and Pat Fields as well as cornerback Latrell McCutchin, who entered the transfer portal.

In starting 42 games at nickel, corner and free safety throughout his career for North Carolina, Morrison has pulled down two interceptions, defended 15 passes and forced a fumble. He also returned a fumble 63 yards for a touchdown as well as a 2-point conversion for a score.

Morrison is also credited with 163 career tackles and two quarterback sacks, including 47 stops last season.

A former 3-star prospect from Norcross, GA, Morrison was the No. 69-ranked athlete in the nation and the No. 80 prospect in the state of Georgia, according to 247 Sports.

Morrison could play nickel or corner but likely will join a safeties room that returns starters super senior Justin Broiles at nickel, as well as Key Lawrence, who also played some corner last season after transferring from Tennessee. Sophomore Bryson Washington and freshmen Jordan Mukes and Damond Harmon also played safety last year.

The Sooners also added Louisville's Kani Walker and Wyoming transfer C.J. Coldon via the portal within the last 24 hours, helping restock new cornerbacks coach Jay Valai's roster at corner.
