Razorback Practice Report – Greenwood Star Drew Morgan Impressing


Razorback practice under the lights drew morgan

FAYETTEVILLE – After the University of Arkansas Razorbacks football team’s two Monday practices,  wide receivers coach Michael Smith met with the media and discussed freshman receiver Drew Morgan stepping up last Saturday during the team’s second scrimmage of camp.

“Drew is doing some really good things,” Smith said. “(He’s) a young guy that’s getting lots thrown at him right now and is responding well. We’ll decide the game plan and how we want to use him and let him go.”

The link below features several thoughts on Drew Morgan from Jim Harris. Morgan, who was a Greenwood High School prep star, won the Landers Award.

Jim Harris’ interview with Drew Morgan is here.

Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jim Chaney spoke with RazorVision after practice about how the Razorbacks have handled the grind of camp thus far.

“This is when the grit comes out,” Chaney said. “I think good teams are unfolded right now. This is when you have to have the grit to go out and compete every day and try to make yourself a better player. Collectively, if everybody does that we’ll become a better offense and a better football team.”

Chaney also spoke on the continued progression displayed by sophomore quarterback Brandon Allen in practices.

“I think he’s on a good run,” Chaney said. “He’s learning all the concepts we’re trying to get down right now and just continues to try and be professional about them and get better at them. We’re not adding any offense right now. We’re ready to go. Starting midweek, we’ll start moving our minds toward the upcoming opponent.”

The Razorbacks continued preseason camp Monday evening, concluding its second practice on the day and final two-a-day of preseason camp.

Associate head coach and offensive line coach Sam Pittman met with the media after practice and gave his reaction to head coach Bret Bielema saying that the offensive line unit was the team’s most improved position group since spring practice.

“Obviously I feel good if your head coach thinks that your group has improved the most,” Pittman said. “I think the biggest thing about it is that we have a long way to go. I know that’s a coach’s cliche and all, but we really do. We have a long way to go and a short time to get there. We’ll get there because our kids work. We’ve got enough talent.”
