Former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Chandler Morris announced on Twitter that he will be heading to Fort Worth to join the TCU football program. The move comes just days after he decided to leave Oklahoma.
Chandler is the son of coach Chad Morris who was most recently the head coach at Arkansas and the offensive coordinator at Auburn this past season.
Morris has been buried on the OU quarterback depth chart since he joined the program in the Class of 2020. He was a three-star prospect who came in as the No. 18 dual-threat quarterback in the class, according to 247Sports.
In the 247Sports analysis, Gabe Brooks wrote, “Undersized but athletic QB with terrific pedigree and production. Limited frame with lower physical ceiling. Displays lightning quick release with consistency. Smooth, repeatable delivery. Velocity improving as he matures. Accurate passer who drops balls into zone windows in the intermediate and deep portions of the field, especially outside the hashes. Sneaky good runner with great production on the ground (20 TD’s as a junior).”
Despite being a true freshman, Chandler did attempt five passes this season and even rushed for two touchdowns including one in the Big 12 title game. When he heads to TCU, he will be joining a quarterback room that includes current starter Max Duggan.
It certainly will be interesting to see how it works out for him at TCU and if we will be able to compete for some playing time.
