McWhorter Makes It Official

This DE earned his offer at Katy Camp this past June and had Texas State as his immediate favorite. Coach Franchione gave him until the end of the summer to make his decision and today, he pulled the trigger and made the commitment.

Dustin McWhorter is a 6'4 245-pound DE with 4.7 speed and strength to toss most offensive lineman clear out of his path. BI caught up with this commit to see what the factors were I his decision.

"The Coaches make it feel like home. They took me in and told me how much they wanted me to be a Bobcat," said McWhorter. "I was talking to my dad telling him how they have a river running right through the middle of campus and I was just saying that probably every day after practice that's exactly where I am going to go."

McWhorter chose Texas State over both North Texas and Colorado State, stating Texas State was just far enough from home, but still close enough he could make the drive back whenever he needed to. The factor of early playing time was also a big plus for him, although he remains humble.

"Another thing was I was told that I had a good chance to be a starter as a Freshman, if I don't redshirt, but I want to earn my place and role on the team. I definitely don't like to sit on the sideline," said McWhorter.

Dustin says he will be shutting down his recruitment, and is 100 percent a Bobcat. This is a big time commit in an area of need for the Bobcats and also acquiring a potential four year starter.
