Morrow averaged 9.4 points and a team-high 7.5 rebounds per game as a sophomore in 2016-17, more than doubling his freshman-year output. He arrived at Nebraska in 2015 as a 4-star recruit, ranked No. 112 in the country according to the 247Sports Composite ranking.
Morrow had a family lineage at Nebraska. His father, Edward Sr., played on the Cornhuskers football team and his mother, Nafeesha Brown, starred on the basketball team.
On March 29, when explaining his decision to transfer, Morrow said in a statement that “sometimes you have to venture out to pursue dreams and aspirations in a career.”
Marquette is coming off of a 19-13 season and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
“I support Ed in his decision to transfer schools and wish him well,” coach Tim Miles said in a statement when Morrow announced his decision to transfer. “We appreciate his hard work over the last two years. Although I am disappointed, we will continue to recruit young men who are committed to our mission of building Nebraska Basketball with a culture of success in all areas … life, school and winning basketball at its highest level.”
