Chandler Morris is a 2020 quarterback recruit from Texas, whose recruitment is starting to heat up. He is also the son of a prominent college football coach: Arkansas's Chad Morris.

Morris took over the Razorbacks this off-season, after three years rebuilding SMU into a respectable team in the AAC. He's known for developing high-powered offenses, so we shouldn't be shocked that his son is apparently a solid quarterback recruit.

Since he is still a full class away, he hasn't been ranked yet. However, big-time college football programs are taking note.

Arkansas recently offered Chandler Morris, but they weren't even the first Power Five program to do so.

That would be the school at which Chad Morris really cut his teeth. Dabo Swinney, Morris's former boss, and the Clemson Tigers extended an offer after a camp earlier this month.

On Friday, Arkansas followed suit. He announced the new offer late last night.

He had to perform before his father made the offer, though. Morris participated at the Razorback Elite QB/WR camp this week.

According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, he was a standout quarterback at the event:

He enjoyed taking part at the Arkansas camp with his father roaming around the two practice fields interacting with other campers.

“It’s fun,” Morris said. “All of the coaches know me. It’s fun to go out and compete.”

Morris was one of the standouts of the camp that featured Hog commitment KJ Jefferson and newly offered Jacolby Criswell. He showed good arm strength and a nice touch while operating like a seasoned veteran. He would embrace getting an offer from his father.

With those two earlier P5 offers, plenty of others should pour in soon. It seems likely that he'll be a Razorback in a few years, but you can't count out the possibility that he'll want to blaze his own trail.
