Worley Planning Rutgers Visit

Coatesville (Pa.) cornerback Daquan Worley will be one of many visitors at Rutgers this weekend for the first Saturday of the spring practice campaign. Worley holds four verbal scholarship offers and has already been a visitor to two other schools during the spring.

Coatesville (Pa.) cornerback Daquan Worley is excited for a return trip to Rutgers, where his high school stood out in a competitive passing camp last summer. Worley earned a verbal scholarship offer from Rutgers as one of his first in the process and will be back on campus this weekend.

"They're a really good school that's recruiting me," Worley said. "They offered me kind of like an athlete I guess. My offer is technically under defensive back but they'll take me either there or on offense."

Worley plays both sides of the ball for Coatesville and is interested in watching both when he visits Piscataway, N.J., this weekend.

"Right now I just want to get a chance to play, so I'm open to wherever colleges like me," Worley said. "Whatever's going to get me on the field is what I want to play, so it depends more on where Rutgers wants me to play.

"I like Rutgers with them also going to the Big Ten and having a good year last year. They have good coaches."

Worley will be back on the Rutgers campus this weekend, likely with offered teammate Tyler Burke. He has already been a visitor at junior days for Pittsburgh and Maryland. He holds a Pitt offer, to go along with Rutgers, Massachusetts and Georgia Tech.

"Pitt's junior day, I liked it a lot," he said. "I liked their facilities and it was a very nice experience. It was one big family at Pittsburgh."

Maryland did not offer during his visit, but the upcoming move to the Big Ten and basketball environment impressed him while on campus.

"I liked everything about Maryland," he said. "The Duke game was crazy. The fans were crazy and they're moving conferences. I think that's good for the school. I liked everything overall at Maryland."

Worley checks in at 5-foot-10, 175 pounds and said his physical play is what makes him stand out for Coatesville.

"Blocking comes first for me as tailback," he said. "I just try to make myself an exciting player coming out of the backfield and on defense. I try to be a sure tackler. That's one thing I try to wrap my game around. I try to be a physical guy on both sides because that's the best way to make an impact."
