The Wildcats land a local product
The Arizona Wildcats have added a Tucson product to their 2019 recruiting class.
Marana High School offensive lineman Jordan Morgan committed to the UA on Thursday, according to his coach, Louie Ramirez. The 6-foot-5, 265-pound tackle is unranked by 247Sports.
Morgan unofficially visited Arizona on Wednesday.
Morgan’s only other offer was from NAU. Arizona actually offered Morgan at an NAU summer camp last weekend.
Christopher Boan of Tucson Weekly detailed the scene:
Morgan’s good fortune came during the camp, when first-year offensive line coach Joe Gilbert pulled him aside, sending the rising senior into a state of euphoria.
“He told me that he was going to offer me a full ride scholarship to U of A, and I was speechless,” Morgan said. “It was pretty mind blowing. So yeah, it’s a pretty big step forward for me.”
What type of player is Morgan?
“He’s athletic as hell for a dude the size of a small skyscraper,” Boan said.
“He’s just super lean. Has a good frame. He’s athletic. He can probably get downhill pretty quick and stay in front of a defender,” said Gabe Encinas, our recruiting analyst.
Morgan becomes the fourth member of UA’s 2019 class. The other three are four-star quarterback Grant Gunnell, three-star running back Michael Wiley, and punter Kyle Ostendorp.
Three-star cornerback Logan Wilson decommitted from Arizona earlier in the week.
