Morgan enjoys unique visit

Arizona commit Jordan Morgan had a unique visit to Arizona this past weekend. Read on to see why, his thoughts on what he saw, and more.

It was a surreal experience 2014 Southridge (Ore.) athlete Jordan Morgan during his trip to Arizona.

"It was a unique situation for me," Morgan said. "I got to watch the team I grew watching every weekend and to see the school I committed to absolutely push them around was just amazing."

It was good for Morgan to get down to Arizona, because he's had a fairly trying senior season.

"It was a long season man," he said. "We had a ton of coaching issues and a lot of the guys on the team wanted to quit. We just had no chemistry all season and I tried to do everything I could, but it wasn't enough."

The Oregon game visit also revitalized Morgan's passion for football.

"I needed this weekend," he said. "I never lost my love for football, but at the same this has been an incredibly trying season.

"Being there on field level made me realize how lucky I am to be going to a school like that, where football is big and you have a staff of proven winners."

Morgan is counting down the days until he becomes a Wildcat.

"I just can't wait to get there now, but it's more than just about getting there," he said. "I want to be able to come in and contribute. In fact, I'm heading to the weight room right now. Since I've left, all I've literally thought about is playing college football."

The excitement for Morgan's arrival on campus is mutual from the UA coaching staff.

"They were on me early and they let me know at an early age that they felt I would be a good Wildcat,"Morgan said. "I wasn't able to talk with the coaches as much as I wanted this past weekend, but that is definitely understandable because they were getting ready to beat one of the best teams in the country."
