FAYETTEVILLE — Bellaire (Texas) Episcopal Class of 2026 linebacker Madden Morgan attended Arkansas’ Football Camp on Saturday and had some very good moments.

Morgan, 6-1, 225, had a very good sophomore season at Episcopal. In 30 of the 40 quarters he saw action in 2023, Morgan had 60 tackles, 14 for loss, three sacks, a forced fumble, one recovered fumble and six pass deflections. Morgan talked about his performance at the camp.

“The camp went really good,” Morgan said. “I like the drills they did. They worked us hard, but got some good conditioning. That was incredible work.”

Morgan worked with Travis Williams, Jake Trump and other assistants at the camp. He was impressed with both Williams and Trump.

“I think they well versed in what they are doing,” Morgan said. “Very knowledgeable. I like how they are on the players and want to be engaged and focused. All the things about the camp were great.”

Morgan, like other campers this week, mentioned how the staff at Arkansas works the campers hard which shows they care about them learning.

“They want to push you and want to see you get better,” Morgan said.

Morgan talked about what he feels his strengths at linebacker are as he prepares for his junior season.

“My strength is block shedding and run protection,” Morgan said. “I can move around in pass coverage and get where I need to be.”

Morgan talked about what led him to camping at Arkansas as he prepares for some other camps this week.

“They’ve been interested in me for awhile,” Morgan said. “I wanted to get out here and see the coaches, facilities and see how they run things. Maybe a potential option down the road.”

This was Morgan’s first time to be at the University of Arkansas. As with most recruits, he was impressed with it.

“I definitely wasn’t expecting this nice of facilities,” Morgan said. “The drive up here where it’s located it’s a really nice place.”

Morgan is headed to Norte Dame and Wisconsin for camps this week. While an offer didn’t come on Saturday, he responded to what an eventual offer from the Razorbacks would mean to him.

“It would be very big to me being my first SEC offer and first offer,” Morgan said. “It would be great for other schools to see someone is committed to you.”

Morgan ran a 4.67 in the 40-yard dash at TCU recently, but said he didn’t run as well at Arkansas.
