The redshirt senior defensive back tweeted a note Wednesday night saying he needs to focus on his mental health.
“Mental health is is so important and shouldn’t be taken lightly,” Morris wrote. “Being open about this wasn’t easy. I’ve been battling through forms of depression for a while now and have been trying to push through it for so long. This has been a hard decision for me but I have decided to take a break from football for a little bit don’t know for how long, but I will be graduating from Texas A&M in May and planning on getting my master’s as well. This is a grown man’s decision I had to make and is so much bigger than football.”
Out of Caldwell, Texas, Morris joined the Texas A&M program in 2017, redshirting his first year on campus. He did not see any action in 2018, either, but has appeared in 19 games over the past two seasons. Last year, in his redshirt junior season, Morris recorded 25 tackles and 3 passes defended.
