Morgan excited for future

Wide receiver Jordan Morgan committed to Arizona this past weekend. Read on to see why, what the coaches think of him, and more.

This past weekend was big for Arizona football recruiting. Many elite prospects were on campus and UA made a positive impression on several recruits, especially 2014 Beaverton (Ore.) Southridge wide receiver, Jordan Morgan.

"I loved everything about the visit," Morgan said. "The campus is absolutely beautiful, I love the weather and it just seems like the perfect place to play college football."

The difference between a commitment and holding off was Arizona's head coach.

"Coach Rodriguez is what really put it over the top," Morgan said. "He runs one of the most fast-paced offenses in the country and it is a perfect place for a wide receiver to go."

Morgan feels a bond with Rodriguez that extends beyond the football field.

"He's just a really cool guy," Morgan said. "He is really focused on football, but he also cares about you as a person and he is a guy who is easy to connect with on a personal level."

The receiver had an idea he might commit before the visit.

"It wasn't something I was completely sold on doing," Morgan said. "But they've done such a good job recruiting me and I just wanted to get there and see things on a personal level.

"I knew pretty quickly after I got there that it was just a matter of time before I became a Wildcat, so after awhile I just figured lets do this."

With his decision out of the way, Morgan is already planning out his UA football career.

"Coach Rodriguez likes my quickness and ability to make plays, so I'm going to focus on my quickness and elusiveness," Morgan said. "I'm just excited to be a Wildcat and I'm already thinking about playing there."
