Gary Patterson Still Waiting on Oklahoma for Chandler Morris Update

NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Texas Christian

The TCU Horned Frogs and Oklahoma Sooners find themselves at odds over the transfer of quarterback Chandler Morris.

Morris decided to leave OU after the 2020 season, but it hasn’t been a smooth process, as he has not technically been released by the Sooners, which could affect Morris’ eligibility for the 2021 season.

On Tuesday, TCU head coach Gary Patterson provided an update basically saying there is no update on Chandler Morris’ status, saying Morris is practicing, but, “right now the ball is in Oklahoma’s court,” regarding his eligibility status.


On this site we have made the case against Lincoln Riley’s decision to not grant the release of Chandler Morris. However we also made the case in favor of the move.

Regardless, it clearly hasn’t been resolved yet.

Morris had 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.

Morris appeared in five games for Oklahoma as a true freshman in 2020, completing 3 of 5 passes for 39 yards while rushing for 44 yards and two touchdowns on five carries.

With all this being said, it is believed that Max Duggan has a lock on the starting job for the Horned Frogs, but Morris could certainly provide some much needed depth in Fort Worth.
