Whittier Christian HS DT Jeff Worthy (La Habra, CA) committed to Boise State last summer and hasn't wavered since pledging to the Blue and Orange. He got a visit from two of his future coaches on Thursday afternoon as they discussed the "little details" in terms of what to expect once he arrives on campus this summer.

"Coach Pete and Coach K got here at around 5:30," he said. "We had dinner and mostly talked about what's going to happen once I get up there, how everything works. I'm going to enroll in the bridge program this summer," he added.

Head Coach Chris Petersen and Defensive Coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski made a solid impression on Jeff's family.

"They really like Coach Pete and Coach K. They're happy with my choice," he stated. "They like the school, the coaches, and they were reassured that I'm going to a good school, and I'm going to learn life lessons from Coach Pete and Coach K."

Worthy's goal is to earn playing time as a true freshman. Head Coach Chris Petersen told him exactly what he'll need to do to accomplish that goal.

"Coach Pete told me I'm big enough already, don't get bigger, just faster," Worthy said. "I know off-the-ball I'm pretty fast, but my pursuit could get a little faster. My knee injury hindered me a little bit in that area."

The future Bronco suffered a knee injury early in the season and has been working hard to get back to 100% ever since. At this time, he feels he's getting closer to 100%.

"I went to the doctor on Monday and what was affecting me knee was the quad and tendons. They were really tight," he said. "They were affecting my MCL and PCL. I've been stretching a lot and doing some light reps. It's not going to hinder me much longer."

Signing Day is just around the corner (February 2nd) and the standout DT is ready to officially become a Bronco.

"I'm real excited for Signing Day," he said. "It's going to be very relieving to know the process is over and now I can go earn my spot. That's all you can do," he added.

Worthy finished the 2010 season with 10 sacks and 79 tackles.
