Arizona football recruiting: Samuel Morrison and Kendall Williams join Wildcats' 2015 class

Another JuCo running back and the son of a former Wildcat have joined the 2015 fray

Rich Rodriguez and the Arizona coaching staff have been busy this week as two new 2015 recruits have verbally committed to the Wildcats.

Junior college running back Kendall Williams was the first this week, and was joined by corner back Samuel Morrison the next day. Both are graded three-star by Scout.

Williams is the second JuCo running back in the 2015 class. Dami Ayoola, who once played at Illinois and will play at Arizona Western this season, committed last month.

Williams is rated as the fourth-best junior college running back in this class by 247. He also had an offer from Georgia State, which would have moved him closer to home.

In an interview with the Daily Star's Daniel Berk, Williams went over his journey that has led him to Butte Community College in California after several stops in his recent past. Seems like there will be a log-jam at running back in the next couple of seasons, with possibly seven scholarship backs on the 2015 roster.

The tenth commitment for 2015 came from CB Samuel Morrison, son of former Wildcat Darryl Morrison. Morrison was a member of the Desert Swarm defenses in the 90s.

Morrison is from Washington D.C., which is fun since Jalen Tabor, who would have been the highest-rated recruit to come to Tucson, is also from D.C.

But this is no Jalen Tabor situation.

According to Rivals, Morrison also had offers from the likes of Boston College, Duke, Georgia Tech, Rutgers and Washington State.

Darryl Morrison had five career interceptions at Arizona in 1991 and '92, including a pick-six in the '91 season. Some goals for the new Morrison to try and obtain for sure.
