Iowa State defensive end Cory Morrissey did things his way in high school and junior college. And it worked. But not in the Big 12.
Morrissey had a lot of listening to do when he arrived on campus in Ames, Iowa. It began with learning technique and following assignments from late defensive ends coach Curtis Bray and transformed him into an all-conference performer last season.
Now a senior, Morrissey is looked upon to lead a unit that was sorely lacking last season.
