Utah football: Morris-Edwards transferring to Weber State
Scott G Winterton, Deseret News
SALT LAKE CITY — Utah defensive back Tyron Morris-Edwards is transferring to Weber State in search of more playing time.
The former Alta High School standout, who appeared in 22 games since redshirting in 2010, made 22 tackles (12 solo) with two passes defended and one tackle-for-loss during his tenure with the Utes.
Morris-Edwards will graduate from Utah this spring and then transfer to Weber State.
At Weber State, Morris-Edwards will be reunited with former Utah assistant Jay Hill. The new head coach of the Wildcats has assembled a staff with a lot of connections to the Utes. Brent Myers (associate head coach/offensive line), Steve Clark (offensive coordinator/quarterbacks), Quinton Ganther (running backs), Jason Kaufusi (defensive ends), Kite Afeaki (defensive tackles) and Lance Hunsaker (secondary/special teams) were former staffers and/or players for Utah. Fesi Sitake (passing game coordinator/wide receivers) is the brother of Utes’ defensive coordinator Kalani Sitake.
COMBINE INVITATIONS: Anthony Denham (as a tight end), Keith McGill, Jake Murphy, Tenny Palepoi and Trevor Reilly have been invited to the upcoming NFL Scouting Combine.
