Worley Checks Out Pitt

Daquan Worley rushed for over 1,700 yards as a junior, and also had three interceptions on defense. He talks about his recent Pitt visit, as well as some other visits coming up.

The first offer is out for Coatesville (PA) running back Daquan Worley. The junior running back/cornerback picked up an offer from Massachusetts. Most recently, he was at the Pitt junior day with teammate Tyler Burke.

"It went good," Worley said. "I got to meet the coaches. I got to meet Coach Hueber for the first time. He had been to my school. i also got to meet the running back coach and the defensive backs coach. I liked the visit a lot."

Worley, as a junior, rushed for over 1,700 yards and 20 touchdowns. On defense, he finished with 60 tackles and three interceptions. He earned all-conference and honorable mention all-state honors. Playing well on both sides of the ball has some schools wondering which position they would offer him at. Pitt sounds like one of those schools.

"Coach House, he came up and talked to me, and he asked me how I felt about playing defensive back," Worley said. "I said, 'Coach, I'll play wherever you put me at.'"

Aside from that, there was one other part of the junior day that stood out.

"My favorite part was when the head coach showed us a highlight video," Worley said. "It showed the upsides and the history of Pitt. I liked that a lot. It shows the tradition of Pitt. I like what they stand for."

In the afternoon, Worley and the rest of the prospects in attendance went to the Pitt-Syracuse game.

"That was great, I really liked that," Worley said. "I had never seen anything like that before. They cheered for us when we came in, their team is real good. I liked it a lot."

After the Pitt visit, Worley also talked about some of his upcoming plans.

"I've only been to Pitt, but I'm going to UConn soon," Worley said. "I'm looking at Boston College, and waiting to see what day the Rutgers (junior day) is. Penn State, I think theirs is coming up. They came to talk to my coaches; me and Tyler Burke."

Other than that, Worley is already looking forward to his senior season, following his 1,700 yards this past season and an appearance in the PIAA Quad-A championship game.

"I'm really looking forward to the season next year," Worley said. "There's a lot of talented people on our team, some who were waiting for their time. It will be the same thing this year. There will be people who are waiting their time to come step up."
