Morgan Lenahan established herself as a consistent threat from deep during her time at Wagner College in Staten Island, New York. Now, the New Jersey native joins a Midwestern State program hoping her success at the Division I level translates to the Lone Star Conference.
“Morgan is a very experienced guard,” MSU Texas coach Christopher Reay said. “She can shoot with range from the perimeter. She is great in pick and roll situations.”
Lenahan averaged 3.0 points and 2.9 assists per game as a junior after missing the 2018-2019 season due to injury. As a redshirt freshman in 2017-2018, the 5-11 guard averaged 9.5 points per game and made a team-high 54 3-pointers.
“As a grad transfer, we are excited about her leadership and welcome her to the Mustang family,” Reay said.
The Haddonfield, New Jersey native enjoyed a stellar prep career, first at Haddon Township High School, where she scored over 1,000 career points in just three seasons and then at Neumann and Goretti High School, where she led the Saints to a PIAA Class 2A State Title as a senior.
Lenahan is the first Division I transfer signed by the Mustangs since 2016 when Micheline Mercelita (University of Texas Rio Grande Valley) and Avery Queen (Denver) joined the program.
She joins a signing class that includes Brittney Fields, Maya Kendall, Kenshawnna Reed, and Mackenzie Taylor.
