The Bears started off relatively strong in 2010, winning four of their first seven games, but the team collapsed toward the end of the season, losing its last four games. Morgan State finished in seventh place in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, with a 3-5 conference record.

Not a lot will change regarding departures on the depth charts, as all starters will return on the offensive side of the ball, with six starters returning on the defensive side. The Bears will need to replace three-fourths of their defensive line after the graduations of defensive tackle Sheldon Jacques, nose tackle Kevin Myrie and defensive end Bricen Tate. The Bears will also have to address holes at cornerback, with the cornerback tandem of Darren McKhan and Nico Scott now gone.

Scott was selected to play in the 2010 Russell Athletic HBCU Bowl, which is the nation's premier senior all-star game. The top 100 draft-eligible seniors from all HBCU Football Conferences are selected to participate in the game.

Several Bears were named to the 2011 Preseason All-MEAC team, including senior offensive lineman Lawrence Brewer (first team) senior tight end Lamont Bryant (second team), junior defensive lineman Bakari Smith (second team), junior linebacker Allen Stephens (second team), senior defensive back Reshaude Miller (second team) and junior punter Nicholas Adams (second team).

Morgan opens the season Sept. 3 at Towson.
