Wortham hits TCU camp

Lewisville (TX) Hebron runningback Dez Wortham didn't expect to attend any camps this summer. That's until he received a call from his head coach that a local program requested to see the talented prospect up close.

Lewisville (TX) Hebron runningback Dez Wortham didn't have plans to attend any college camps this summer. When HornedFrogBlitz.com last caught up with Wortham at the Red Bull Gamebreakers tournament in Dallas a few weeks ago, the 5-foot-11, 200-pounder said he was more focused on preparing himself for his senior season.

That changed on Wednesday night when he received a call from his coach, Brian Brazil, informing Wortham that TCU wanted to see him at their one day camp.

"Coach Brazil called me on Wednesday and said Coach Sharp had called him and asked if I was interested in going to the camp," he said. "It's a good school and I can see myself going to this school so why not come out here and perform and see what happens.

"I enjoyed myself out here; I feel like I got better and saw some of my buddies out here competing so I had a good time."

Wortham ran one of the better shuttle times for a runningback, clocking a 4.25. While he feels he didn't test well, he feels he caught the coaches attention once position drills began.

"I felt like during one-on-one's and skill position drills I did well," he said. "I think I could've tested a little better but on all the football based stuff I think I did really well."

Wortham received positive input from Coach Sharp while on campus.

"They're going to go back and analyze everything and talk as a coaching staff," he said. "He said I have good footwork, I catch good and run good routes. They run a lot of stuff with their runningbacks coming out on routes so he feels like that's something I could do very well."

Ranked as the nation's #54 runningback, Wortham holds offers from Colorado State, Connecticut, Houston, Kentucky, Navy, Nevada, New Mexico, San Diego State, Utah State and Wake Forest. He has 1,100 total yards in 2011 and has started for the Hawks since his freshman year.
