Jedd Fisch says Arizona expects to have its all-conference left tackle fully healthy and ready to roll on Saturday when Northern Arizona comes to town.

Jordan Morgan, the Wildcats’ senior left tackle, suffered a season-ending knee injury in the win over UCLA last November. That injury forced him to miss spring ball and made him somewhat limited throughout fall camp.

But Morgan is ready for Saturday’s opener.

“Good to go,” Fisch said Monday when asked about the lineman. “Jordan is fully medically cleared. And I expect Jordan to play at a very high level.”

The 6-foot-5 Marana native was an All-Pac-12 First Team selection by the AP last fall. He started 10 games for the Wildcats and was one of the anchors for a dramatically improved UA offense.

Morgan was among the Pac-12’s 10 highest-graded offensive linemen as a pass blocker, according to Pro Football Focus. He was charged with just one sack in more than 400 snaps as a pass blocker.

If not for the injury, he likely would have been able to turn pro and hear his name called in the 2023 NFL Draft.

“He’s used this time of his rehabilitation to get more football smart. He really did a ton of studying tape,” Fisch said.

But the head coach also praised the commitment Morgan made to staying in the weight room throughout the rehab process.

“He used this time to improve his upper body strength even more than it was prior,” Fisch said. “Obviously, he was one of the strongest guys on our team before he got hurt, but he had a huge focus on how strong he could get. He used this time to really take care of himself and get his life in a spot where now his full focus is on football. I’m excited to see Jordan out there.”

The Wildcats kick off against Northern Arizona at 7 p.m. PT on the Pac-12 Network.
