MJ Morris will reportedly explore continuing his college football career elsewhere. Morris is planning to enter his name into the NCAA transfer portal, according to On3.

NC State fans won’t be too surprised by the Wolfpack quarterback’s decision. He elected to redshirt earlier this season to preserve his eligibility after notching a 3-1 record as a starter. By redshirting, Morris will be considered a sophomore again in 2024.
