Texas Tech offensive lineman might seek approval from the NCAA for an eighth year of eligibility.
As you might suspect, he’s been a wee bit injury-prone.
The Tech lineman missed the 2011 season, his true freshman year, due to an injury sustained in summer camp. The same thing around the same time happened again in 2012. And again in 2013. And, unbelievably, again in 2014. That’s right, Morales missed four straight complete seasons because of injury.
Morales’ myriad health issues have consisted of a torn labrum in his right shoulder (2011); a strained knee ligament (2012); a torn labrum in his left shoulder (2013); and another knee issue in 2014.
To give you some perspective, Morales was signed by Tommy Tuberville, which means his playing career has survived Tuberville’s coaching career.
