The decommitments continue rolling in for Arkansas football.
Since Nov. 10, eight players have decommitted from Arkansas’ program. The latest of these is former Arkansas head coach Chad Morris’ son — a four-star quarterback from Highland Park — Chandler Morris.
Following his father’s firing on Sunday after Arkansas’ 45-19 loss to Western Kentucky, Chandler Morris announced withdrawing his commitment and reopening his recruitment on Tuesday evening via twitter:
According to Dave Campbell’s Texas Football, Chandler Morris is ranked No. 41 in the state and No. 3 in his position. He’s the No. 13 dual-threat quarterback in the nation for the 2020 recruitment class.
The senior has completed over 70 percent of his passes this season and totals 2,818 yards with 33 touchdowns. Morris has led Highland Park to the District 6-5A, Division I title while finishing the regular season with a record of 9-1.
With his decommitment, Morris becomes the highest ranked uncommitted quarterback in the 2020 class and sixth highest of any position. Morris is compared to North Texas’ starting quarterback Mason Fine, who has completed 1,000 passes in his career at for over 12,000 yards with 2,657 of those yards coming this season..
According to 247sports.com, Morris has plenty of offers to choose from ranging from defending national champion Clemson to North Texas, which will be losing Fine at the end of the season. The full list includes: Virginia Tech, SMU, Oklahoma, Kansas State, Kansas, Indiana, Colorado State, Colorado, Boise State and Auburn.
It will be interesting to see how fellow players continuing to decommit from Arkansas’ program and Chad Morris’ firing will affect more prospective players and current players like Morris’ former teammate and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ grandson John Stephen Jones.
