Prep Career
As a senior at Claremont High School in Claremont, CA, Morrah was a PrepStar All-America selection. Rivals.com rated him as the No. 13 strong-side defensive end in the class of 2005. He originally committed to Kansas State to play with his brother, but decided at the last minute to stay in-state and attend Cal.
College Career
Morrah redshirted during the 2005 season, then played 10 games at tight end and on special teams in 2006, catching one pass for a touchdown, against Portland State. As a sophomore, Morrah was more involved in the Cal offense, catching 13 passes for 155 yards and a touchdown while starting four times in 12 games. A knee injury forced him out of the lineup against Washington, the only game he missed due to injury in his college career. In 2008, Morrah led Cal with eight touchdown receptions, the most ever in a single-season by a Cal tight end. He had 22 receptions and his 326 receiving yards were third on the team. After the season, Morrah chose to declare for the NFL Draft, in part because his grandmother had become ill, and Morrah wanted her to have the opportunity to see him play in the NFL. Morrah is the third Cal player in the last three years to declare early for the draft, following Marshawn Lynch and DeSean Jackson.
