Chad Morris' son, 2020 QB recruit Chandler Morris, lands offer from Clemson
Nepotism can be a dangerous thing, especially when introduced into the high stakes world of SEC football. That’s something Arkansas fans are well aware of following several years of quarterback play from Brandon and Austin Allen in Fayetteville. Taking that into consideration, Chad Morris may soon be in somewhat of a tough spot as his son is a rising quarterback prospect.
If you are unfamiliar with Chandler Morris, he’s a 2020 recruit from the state of Texas. Arkansas has yet to officially offer him a scholarship but following his appearance at a weekend camp at Clemson, the Tigers appear to have pulled the trigger on Chad’s son. Chandler took to Twitter recently to announce he’s received an offer to play for Clemson.
Morris does not yet have a recruiting ranking but did throw for 1,479 yards and 29 touchdowns and rushed for 465 yards and six touchdowns in eight games as a sophomore for Texas high school Highland Park, the school that produced Matt Stafford. Morris is coached by Randy Allen, one of the winningest coaches in Texas high school history.
Following this news, it will be interesting to see if Arkansas soon extends an offer to Morris’ son. The Razorbacks currently hold a commitment from 2019 quarterback KJ Jefferson of Mississippi but do not hold a commitment from a 2020 quarterback prospect.

While he’s got two more high school seasons to play before even arriving in college, Morris appears to have plenty of potential for a prospect of his age. He’s got plenty of arm talent and has the wheels to be a true dual-threat option that the Razorbacks are going to desire for their QBs under Chad Morris.
Based on his highlights, what do you think? Should Arkansas pursue Chad Morris’ son?
