Greenville University graduate Nick Morrow was signed by the Oakland Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2017 and played the most snaps of any Raiders rookie that year.
Nick had a day off from practice Tuesday and he told WGEL it was quite a transition moving from a Division III school to the NFL.
He credits his family and his Greenville connections for helping with that transition.
