Chad Morris' son, former Arkansas pledge Chandler Morris announces commitment to Big 12 program
Despite getting fired as Arkansas’ head coach towards the end of this season, Chad Morris will remain in the Power 5 as an offensive coordinator at Auburn next season. His son will join him in the top division of college football.
Morris’ son, Chandler Morris, announced in a reveal at the Under Armour All-America game Thursday that he will be heading to Oklahoma.
Standing at 5-foot-11 and a little under 180 pounds, Chandler is a 4-star prospect and the No. 14 dual-threat quarterback based on the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He is also a Top 400 recruit overall and the No. 52 player from Texas in the 2020 class.
Chandler received an offer from Arkansas, but it appeared highly unlikely that he would go there after the Razorbacks fired his father as head coach. In addition to those two schools, Chandler was reportedly considering Virginia Tech, USC, Auburn, Clemson and a plethora of other programs.
Morris’ son may be new to the Oklahoma program and the Big 12, but he appears to already know how to endear himself to his new fan base. After pulling out an Oklahoma hat from his bag to reveal his school choice, Chandler did an upside Texas horns sign.
Morris has coached plenty of high school football in Texas, but the only schools from the state of Texas pursuing Morris was TCU and SMU. Morris was the SMU head coach from 2015-17 before leaving for Arkansas prior to the 2018 season.
