Jordan Morris is leaving Stanford and turning professional. While this is no surprise and has been reported to be coming for a couple weeks, now it is official as the university confirmed that he will forego his senior season and turn pro.
Morris tweeted his statement.
Stanford also confirmed that Morris will be in St. Louis for the MAC Hermann Trophy ceremony on Friday before flying to Europe to train with Werder Bremen.
Morris turning pro has been a foregone conclusion since Stanford's season ended in early December. There have been multiple reports indicating as much, and this came on top of an interview he gave in the summer that indicated he was likely to leave school after last season ended.
Morris has an offer from the Seattle Sounders, who own his homegrown rights. They have reportedly offered him a contract that would be a record for a homegrown contract, but as evidenced by his training stint with Werder Bremen, he is also considering his European options.
