Closer Look For Worley

Daryl Worley will be at West Virginia on Sunday and Monday to take a closer look at the Mountaineer program.

Daryl Worley, and outstanding safety who recently trimmed his final list of schools to three, will check out one of his favorites as he tours the WVU campus on Sunday and Monday. It will be his first trip to West Virginia's home base, and he has a list of items he wants to see.

"I'm not going to work out at the camp, but I will look at everything there, the campus, the town and everything. I want to see Morgantown as a whole and see if it a place where I can be comfortable."

Worley's visit is set to include meetings with coaches and representatives on both the atheltic and academic sides of WVU.

"I've been talking to the coaches, and they tell me they treat the team like it's a big family," he said. "I want to see that, and make sure that it's a good fit for me. I'm going to major in athletic training, and I have it all set up to see that on my tour. I'll get to talk to people that are studying there and learn about it."

Worley said he does not have a timetable set for a decision, but an impressive visit to WVU could change that. He noted that this visit will be the last for him before his high school practice starts.

Worley has had WVU among his favorites since the start of the recruiting process, and he listed some of the items that have attracted him to the school.

"It's such a big time place," he related. "You see all the names on TV, you're in the Big 12, and you play against great competition. I love that.

"The coaches have told me they think I have great ball skills, and that they like me on both sides of the ball, but that they see my future on defense," he continued. "When the ball is in the air, I know it can be mine. I've gotten really serious about defense since most of the schools, and all of my final three, are recruiting me on defense. Ever since then, I've made all my workouts and preparation focus on defense."
