Before he left Tucson on Sunday night to head back to his home state of Oregon, Jordan Morgan decided to end his recruitment.

So before he boarded his 6 p.m., flight back to the Northwest, Morgan, a wide receiver prospect from Beaverton, Ore., committed to the Arizona Wildcats.

The Wildcats were the first Pac-12 program to offer Morgan and he decided to pounce on it. He also had offers from Air Force, San Jose State, UNLV and Wyoming.

Morgan was in town for Rich Rodriguez’s Prospect Camp and after working with receivers coach Tony Dews on Sunday, he committed.

“I came in open-minded,” Morgan said. “I had an idea in my head, but I wasn’t sure. I had already been here and loved it and then after working with Coach Dews, I just decided to do it.”

Morgan (6-3, 186) said he also enjoyed meeting and practicing with Wildcats commit and Salpointe Catholic wide receiver Cameron Denson at the camp and was intrigued by his thoughts on the UA.

“It will be cool working with him,” said Morgan of Denson. “Him and other guys from Arizona were telling me it’s been a dream of theirs to be a Wildcat and I just thought I couldn’t pass that up.”

Morgan is the fifth commitment in the 2014 class for the Wildcats. All five are offensive prospects.
