We are getting closer and closer to the start of Fall Camp for Arizona Football, and yet another Wildcat has on a preseason watchlist, this time it is Jordan Morgan.
Another day, another preseason award watchlist for one of our Wildcats as Jordan Morgan is the latest Arizona Football player to be drawing early praise.
Making news via social media on Saturday afternoon, Morgan became the fourth Wildcat to garner some preseason hype as Jordan was added to the Wuerffel Trophy Watchlist.
Named after former Florida Gators quarterback Danny Wuerffel for his commitment to service and leadership, the award honors college football’s “most impactful leaders in community service. The Wuerffel Trophy is presented to the FBS player who best combines exemplary community service with leadership achievement on and off the field.”
Jordan Morgan returns to Arizona Football in 2022 healthy and should be primed for a potentially big season.
A former standout at the local Marana High School in Marana, AZ (located just 28 miles from campus), Morgan came to Tucson in the class of 2019 after drawing interest from USC and ASU among others.
In three seasons, Jordan has become a key focal point of the offensive line, having played in 19 games for the Wildcats including 15 starts at tackle.
Well, now Morgan is returning to Arizona for his sophomore season, and the Arizona native should be in a position to make an even bigger impact along the Wildcats’ offensive line.
Coming off of a respectable 2021 season, Morgan is one of Arizona’s better offensive linemen, when healthy.
His presence alone should help the offense and in particular, the offensive line immensely, but a lot of that will be contingent on healthy he is. Should have run into more ailments, and that could be trouble for the Cats.
At Zona Zealots, we are excited about the fast approaching 2022 season, and cannot wait to see Jordan’s impact with the Wildcats this season, especially as he contends for the Wuerffel Trophy!
