The winger had his contract terminated by mutual consent at Hillsborough after making only two appearances for The Owls this season.
With his contract expiring at the end of this season, Wednesday manager Chris Turner has decided to let him move on to the high-flying Blades.
The Northern Ireland Under-21 international had a loan move to Hull City cut short last September, when former boss Jan Molby considered the midfielder not to be match-fit.
He then rejected the chance to join Carlisle United for a trial earlier this month and after being named as one of the Wednesday players to be arrested for an alleged incident at Christmas in a Leeds nightclub, the club may have been happy to part company with the troubled youngster.
Morrison becomes the first player to cross the Sheffield divide to Bramall Lane since Wilf Rostron did in 1989.
Meanwhile, Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock has been told by Division Two side Stockport County that they cannot take goalkeeper Lee Jones on loan.
The Blades boss watched the transfer-listed Welshman in County's reserves this week, as he eyed some custodial cover for number one Paddy Kenny.
However, player-manager Carlton Palmer has decided to block the switch, claiming that Jones is needed to cover his goalkeepers at Edgeley Park.
Palmer told the Manchester Evening News: "It's taken us long enough to have two fit keepers at the club and we need Lee's experience as a back up in case of an injury to Ola Tidman."
