Chad Morris says he's not recruiting his son, a talented 4-star QB, to Arkansas
Chad Morris’ son, Chandler, was just elevated to a 4-star prospect by 247Sports Rankings.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pound signal caller lives in Texas and plays for Highland Park. He’s currently rated as the nation’s No. 10 dual-threat QB and the No. 50 overall prospect in state of Texas, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Morris’ offer list includes the likes of Arkansas, Auburn, Clemson and Virginia Tech, among others. Interestingly, Morris has decided not to personally recruit his son to Fayetteville, he told ESPN. That’s being handled by the Hogs’ OC Joe Craddock.
“I said, ‘Look, I’m going to be the dad, not the recruiting coach,'” he said. “It’s been very unique because you get to see the other side of the table.”
Highland Park’s head coach Randy Allen even confirmed Morris’ comments. Allen said he’s never spoken to Morris about the recruitment of his son.
“I treat Chandler just like our other players who have Division I talent,” Allen said. “He wanted to go through the recruiting process just like any athlete. I don’t know what he’s going to do. I know the team that’s here the most is Arkansas to recruit him. Their quarterback coach, Joe Craddock, is at a lot of our practices, and a lot of our spring he was here. They are recruiting him very hard.”
It’ll be interesting to see where Morris signs to play his college ball. Most feel that he’ll land at Arkansas.
