Texas A&M defensive back announces he won't return to team after stepping away to focus on mental health
Devin Morris says his college football career has come to an end.
Morris announced in March that he was stepping away from football to focus on mental health. Wednesday evening he shared that he won’t be returning to the field.
“This past March I announced publicly that I would be stepping away from football to focus on my mental health,” Morris wrote in a note posted on Twitter. “As of today, I still stand strongly on my decision and would like to announce that my career playing football has come to an end and I will not be returning for my final season this fall.”
Morris thanked his Texas A&M coaches and wished his Aggie teammates well.
“This decision was hard, but I know God has better plans for me. I want to thank all the coaches and especially my teammates for making my years at Texas A&M so memorable!!” Morris wrote. “I have seen everybody’s work being put in these past few years to create what we’ve built here at A&M and I’m excited to watch you all put it on display this season and bring that National Championship home to College Station.”
Morris recorded 25 tackles and 3 pass breakups during the 2020 season. He did not play in the regular-season finale against Tennessee or Orange Bowl game against North Carolina.
Morris’ Wednesday tweet included a photo in his cap and gown.
