DE Liking Bobcats

This DE has been on the radar since early last season, but propelled himself to "Target" status after his showing at camp in Katy this past Monday.

Dustin McWhorter is a 6'4 240-pound DE out of Graham HS, who swarms to the ball on every play and has the strength to bully whoever lines up against him. BI caught up with McWhorter and asked him about what he brings to the table.

"I don't stop until the person with the ball is down and I don't take plays off. I am a leader who stays hyped all game, it doesn't matter what play you call, and you better expect me to be coming for you," said McWhorter.

Texas State is one of his three offers, the other two being Colorado State and North Texas. McWhorter took a visit to Texas State during Junior Day and plans to visit again in July.

"They have a really nice campus, I loved the river, the coaches really seemed like they would take care of me like one of their own sons and more than just a player. Texas State has everything that i want in a school, I would rate them an 8.5 out of 10 if I had to put it on a scale. Right now I'm leaning a lot towards Texas State," said McWhorter.

Head Coach Dennis Franchione himself stopped Dustin in the middle of camp and gave him the offer, telling him he had great hands and really enjoyed watching him work. McWhorter also told us that Coach Franchione wants him to have his decision made up by this summer and that they have big plans for him in San Marcos.

At the Katy Camp, Dustin had many of his best times in drills, recording a 4.81 forty, 31.5 verticle, 5.71 cone drill, and a 4.6 shuttle. The coaching staff rewarded his performance by letting him know he has a full ride to be a Bobcat. In time, we'll know if McWhorter leaning towards Texas State will result in a decision.
