OT Kyle Morrison talks UNM visit

Kyle Morrison (Lee’s Summit, Mo./Lee’s Summit West) jump-started his official visits with a stop in Albuquerque, N.M., over the weekend. The 6-foot-3, 285-pound offensive tackle visited New Mexico and gave the visit high marks.

Morrison picked up his very first offer from New Mexico in July. He is being recruited by inside linebackers coach Kevin Cosgrove but has also built a pretty good relationship with offensive line coach Jason Lenzmeier.

“I really liked the coaching staff, specifically Coach Lenzmeier, who would be my position coach,” Morrison said. “I like the overall football atmosphere in Albuquerque.”

Morrison said he had a good time with his player host, junior left tackle Darryl Johnson, an all-Mountain West Conference honorable mention lineman. Morrison, an all-conference player himself on the high school level, said his second official visit will take place next month, as he will take in Northern Iowa.

Morrison has offers from New Mexico, Northern Iowa and Southeast Missouri State. He also has received interest from Missouri, Nebraska and Indiana.
