TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona senior Richard Morrison would like to leave the slash in his past.
It's been slashslashslash for Morrison for four years.
Slash meaning he can play quarterbackwide receiverpunt returnercornerback.
"I feel I can play anywhere," said Morrison, who was recruited as a quarterback out of Royse City, Texas. "I'm a true athlete."
But an athlete without a position to call his own. This fall, for his final college season, he's at cornerback. But there's always been a caveat -- for now.
It isn't easy being the jack of all trades and master of none. He'd rather his coaches identify his spot, leave him there, and, well, play him.
"As long as I start," he said, laughing.
Last year, he started the season opener at slot receiver and played nine games. For the season, he had 23 catches for 171 yards and two touchdowns but lost playing time in the second half of the season. He requested a switch to defense this year, figuring his chance of playing was better.
