Razorback report: KJ always sets on '22 return

The 6-3, 247-pounder ranks seventh in the country with a 168.7 passer efficiency rating, fueled largely by his 21-3 touchdown-to-interception ratio and his 66.9% completion rate.

Jefferson stated, "I need another one." Jefferson said, "I want to make sure I'm in the right places I need to be moulded in, mature in the correct spots and continue to be humble and a student of this game."

Jefferson has thrown for 2,578 yard on 184 of 275 passing. He has also not thrown an interception in his last 170 passes. This streak is the longest in UA history. He also ran for 554 yards, ranking 16th among FBS quarterbacks.

Morris schedule

After missing the Outback Bowl's first two practices due to a medical problem, Tyson Morris, Arkansas receiver, was scheduled to fly to Tampa Tuesday evening.

Morris, a senior from Helena West Helena, will be allowed to practice before the Razorbacks (8-4), play in the first game against Penn State (7-5).

According to a source familiar with the situation, Morris' status in today's practice is not yet known.

Coach Sam Pittman stated Monday that Morris could be available Wednesday, depending on the rulings, or later. He did not specify his condition.

In the absence of Treylon Burks, Morris is the Razorbacks' most prolific receiver with 21 catches totalling 305 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Bucs turf

After Arkansas' win over Texas A&M (20-10), the Razorbacks were thrilled to be playing at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium.

The Super Bowl 31-9 victory was won by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers over Kansas City, on February 7, in their home stadium. It was led by quarterback Tom Brady.

KJ Jefferson, Arkansas quarterback, said, "Going out to Tampa Bay stadium, knowing Tom Brady has played there, I can go home and say, ‘Hey, that field was my field too.’"

Grant Morgan, linebacker, said that everything he'd heard about the grass was beautiful. "Supposedly, the grass is really incredible. It's amazing. I can't wait to see it. I feel like Tom Brady sitting there. It will be great.

Morgan said he would also like to run around like Devin White, a former LSU star.

Raheim Sanders, running back, said that he isn't necessarily a Bucs fan but that he loves Tampa tailback Leonard Fournette and would choose to go with them.

Trophy trip

The Burlsworth trophy made it to Tampa, and Grant Morgan, Arkansas linebacker, brought it to the interview table. He and KJ Jefferson were also there.

Morgan was searching for an area in which to place the ball, and Jefferson suggested that the middle be placed between the players.

"Our trophy," Jefferson said. Jefferson said, "We won it together."

Morgan was asked why the trophy, which was presented to the nation's best player, who started his career as a walk on, was there.

Morgan stated, "This was a Christmas present that I received just before I walked into, so they were like, "Let's take it in there and show it off.

Morgan stated that he would find a way for the trophy to be flown home even if it meant paying $200 overage fees.

Family and friends

Arkansas tailback Raheim Sanders, also known as "Rocket", is the closest relative to Tampa. Most of his family live in Rockledge, which is about two hours from Arkansas.

Sanders stated, "I have a lot family down here." "Not far at all, actually, out of Rockledge. They'll be there in an hour or two.

Sanders was asked how many tickets he had to purchase and he replied that he has a lot. Sanders said, "I'm not going to lie, about 15 tickets."

Good Scout

Arkansas Coach Sam Pittman was not available for media interviews on Tuesday. Players were therefore asked if the Scout Team provided fast, accurate looks for the Razorbacks. Pittman stated that the team would practice starters against starters on Wednesday if necessary.

John Ridgeway, defensive tackle, said that the scout team "practices well every week." "I believe we have the best college football scout team, hands down." We have great looks thanks to our scout team."

KJ Jefferson, Quarterback, said that Pittman has not yet said whether the Razorbacks would run reps between their starters.

Jefferson stated, "They did an outstanding job today giving Penn State the different looks and the different blitzes they'll pressure me on."

Bryce, nice

Multiple Razorbacks pointed out freshman receiver Bryce Stephens, who was a young player who has excelled during bowl practices.

Stephens, a 6-foot 180-pounder from Oklahoma City did not catch during three games. However, he had three punt returns of 53 yards and played an important role in the Razorbacks' win at LSU 16-13 late in the year.

Raheim Sanders, a freshman, said that Bryce was the best receiver of the young players who participated in postseason practices. He really excelled in practice. He is a total professional. Bryce would get it."

Quarterback KJ Jefferson shared the props a bit more.

Jefferson stated that Jaedon Wilson and Bryan Stephens are two receivers who have made big strides. "Just getting those young men matured and molded in, getting reps and helping to understand the offense at practice. Making sure they get extra reps and understanding the offense.

Only for kickers

After the team's stretch period, the Razorback experts jogged to an adjacent field near the University of Tampa's Pepin Stadium.

As opposed to Pepin's goal posts, the auxiliary field had one goal post for placekickers.

Complete squad

The Razorbacks brought their entire roster, including Koilan Jackson (ex-wideout, tight end), who was plagued by injuries and had to take a time out due to medical reasons.

Safety Jalen Katalon, who had season-ending shoulder surgery in October was doing drill work from the sidelines during practice's media viewing section.

The track circled the University of Tampa's Pepin Stadium. This is where the Spartans' soccer teams are located.

Visitors increase

The Arkansas practice was attended by a larger number of visitors and fans than Monday's. It was highlighted by John Daly, former Razorback golfer, and his family, which included John Daly Jr.

After a 57-point victory over Team Woods on December 19, in Orlando, the Dalys took many pictures and spoke to dozens upon dozens of well-wishers.

Daly, who resides in central Florida, was also present at the Outback Bowl news conference hosted by Arkansas Coach Sam Pittman, and Penn State Coach James Franklin.

Vernon Hargreaves, former assistant football coach in Arkansas, visited practice to greet Pittman and other UA staff. Hargreaves, who lives in Tampa, is currently coaching at Howard University.

Daly news

John Daly Jr. is a redshirt freshman from the UA men’s golf team. He said he enjoyed playing with his father in winning the PNC Championship in Orlando. It took place two weeks ago. The event paired PGA golfers and their family members.

The Dalys shot a 57 during the final round in scramble format. This gave them a total of 27 shots to beat Tiger and Charlie Woods and Team Thomas, the defending champions, by three shots.

It's clearly No. Daly Jr. stated that it was No. 1. "I would think that I'd say it the same for him.

"The first day, he didn’t putt well, but luckily, I did. Before it began, I told him that we would have to putt well. Everything I saw was mine. We both did really well on the second day."

Daly Sr. is a two-time winner of majors on the PGA Tour and was asked about the media coverage surrounding the PNC, which weighed heavily on Tiger Woods’ recovery from a major car accident, as well as the talent of his young child, Charlie.

Daly stated, "We won the tournament." "That was the most important."
