Worley Gets Final Answers During WVU Visit

William Penn Charter (Philadelphia) defensive back Daryl Worley had a few lingering questions as he began his official visit to West Virginia, and the Mountaineers commit left with plenty answers.

Daryl Worley was always solid to West Virginia, but he did have some questions because of the turnover in staff, especially in the secondary.

After the Williams Penn Charter High (Philadelphia) athlete's official visit this weekend, though, he is feeling even better about things.

Worley said he spent time speaking with cornerbacks coach Brian Mitchell and safeties coach Tony Gibson, both of whom were recently hired.

"I definitely made a great connection with those guys this weekend," he said. "I definitely look forward to being coached by them. It was a great feel. I got to hear things from their perspective, and see how they view their players, their connections with them, and how often they like to communicate.

"Knowing that now, I'm good. I'm ready to go into it knowing how they feel." However, whether Worley will remain in the secondary must be finalized.

Worley added the coaching staff brought up the idea of him playing running back, or even receiver, if depth suggests it is needed.

"As of right now, I'm being recruited as a safety but their saying my position could be changed to running back because of the versatility I have," he said. "I will have no problem changing my position to make sure we have the best talent on the field at the same time."

The visit gave Worley a much different look at the school then when he was there in the summer, and he said coach Dana Holgorsen was with the group of recruits "the entire weekend," and he spent plenty of time talking to the players.

"When we got their Friday, they took us out to dinner and we had a good time," Worley said. "Saturday, they gave us a tour of the town and the school, and its different sections, and it was more in-depth than you would see on other tours.

"After that they took us to lunch and we had meetings with our position coaches, and they took us through everything, and how it is going to be next year. We had a long meeting with the strength and conditioning coach, and told us what to expect."

Between the meetings with the coaches, the academic presentations, hanging out with the players and touring the campus and city, Worley felt the trip was complete.

"The visit was more in-depth," Worley said. "We got a chance to sit down and talk with the coaches and the players, and ask them questions I really wanted to ask about how it's going to be when I get there, and what position they see me as when I get there."
