Arkansas WR Tyson Morris reportedly makes decision on 2021 season
The Arkansas offense received a boon this week when word came out that WR Tyson Morris would return for the 2021 season.
HawgBeat confirmed that Morris will use his extra year of eligibility with the Razorbacks. His decision means every player who caught a touchdown pass for Arkansas in 2020 will suit up again next season. The only player who caught a pass of any kind and won’t be back is running back Rakeem Boyd.
Morris in the 2020 season made two catches for 32 yards, including a 17-yard catch, in the win over Ole Miss, and a one-yard touchdown at Texas A&M. In 2019, Morris caught 13 passes for 155 yards, with one TD, and he recorded a catch in each of the first seven games of the year, the only Hog to do so.
The upcoming season will be his sixth in college after he redshirted in his first season at Central Oklahoma in 2016.
Before this past season, Sam Pittman became Morris’ fourth college coach. Morris redshirted under Bret Bielema as a 2017 Arkansas walk-on transfer then under Chad Morris earned a scholarship lettering the previous two years.
“I can tell you Tyson has looked good and done a nice job in the walkthroughs and special teams,” Pittman said, per the Times Record. “He’s got speed and he’s big (6-2, 202). We think he’s gonna help us at wide receiver.”
