Trio of Harvard footballers bound for the big time

1 min read

Three senior Harvard football players have signed free agent contracts with NFL teams. Two-time Ivy League Player of the Year Carl Morris has reached an agreement with the Indianapolis Colts, offensive guard Jamil Soriano has signed with the Green Bay Packers, and offensive tackle Jack Fadule has inked a deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Morris holds eight of Harvard’s nine major receiving marks and finished his career with 245 catches. Last fall, he ranked second in the country in both receptions per game (9.0) and receiving yards per game (128.8) and was a finalist for the Payton Award as the nation’s top Division I-AA player. He was an Associated Press 1st Team All-American.

As part of an offense that ranked eighth in the country in yards per game (426.7), both Soriano and Fadule have earned All-Ivy League and All-New England honors during their Harvard careers.

Former Crimson players in the NFL include Matt Birk ’98, a two-time Pro Bowl center with the Minnesota Vikings; Isaiah Kacyvenski ’00, a linebacker with the Seattle Seahawks; and offensive tackle Mike Clare ’01, who is property of the New England Patriots and is playing with the Frankfurt Galaxy of NFL Europe.
