Nebraska’s Stanley Morgan and Antonio Reed will not miss any time in 2017 following their arrests for suspicion of marijuana possession this summer, Huskers head coach Mike Riley told reporters Thursday.
“Stanley Morgan and Antonio Reed went through extensive… What should I say? They went through an extensive period of time doing what they were supposed to do and it wasn’t just the extensive time period,” Riley said. “It was what they did they had to do and spend with it, so they will not miss any time playing in the games.”
Both juniors, Morgan and Reed were arrested in Florida in May. Morgan had 33 receptions for 453 yards and two touchdowns as a sophomore in 2016. Reed had 22 tackles.
Morgan was arrested during a traffic stop after the car he was in failed to come to a complete stop while exiting a convenience store parking lot around 3:41 p.m. on May 6. The arresting officer said he smelled cannabis from the car as he approached it and saw fresh cannabis in view on the center console of the car.
“Freshman year I was a little wild animal running around out there,” Morgan said during camp. “Sophomore year, [I was] kind of a contained wild animal. This year, I’m smarter.”
