Columbus Nike Camp: Christopher Worley

Cleveland Glenville linebacker Christopher Worley put himself on the recruiting map with an outstanding junior season, and the offers are coming. Worley is in the process of checking out different schools.

Christopher Worley showed well Saturday at the Nike Football Training Camp in Columbus. Worley, 6-foot-2, 185-pounds, showed the quick feet that enabled him to make plays last year as a junior.

"Things went well for me out here at Nike, and I loved the competition," Worley stated. "I think I showed what my skills are, and I wanted to show people how athletic I am. People have questioned my coverage skills, but I think I did real well here."

"Other than my coverage being good, I think I responded well to being coached by people I had never met before," he added. "I think I learned about how to improve my footwork and that is something I can use to help me be a better player next year."

Worley has seen his recruitment go well to date, and he currently holds seven offers, including Ohio State, Michigan State, Pittsburgh and West Virginia.

"My two newest offers are from Pittsburgh and Michigan State," he explained. "I like Michigan State and think a lot of that program, from the academics to the football part. Their coaches are all good guys, and that's a school I'm interested in. I've never been there yet, but plan on visiting there."

"I know a little bit about Pittsburgh and like them also," he continued. "I'm very interested in Pitt and they are always in our school recruiting Glenville players. I will also be checking them out this summer."

"I visited Ohio State a few weeks ago for their spring game and liked it a lot," he added. "It was good hanging out with (former teammate) Christian Bryant, and seeing everybody again. I'm very high on Ohio State, but I'm in no hurry to make my decision. I will probably decide after my season is over."

Worley, a top student in the classroom at Glenville, appears to have added strength since his season ended. He probably projects as a linebacker at the next level, but schools are telling him they are recruiting him as a defensive athlete.
