Opportunity Exists For Worton

Homestead (Fla.) South Dade wide receiver CJ Worton made a return trip to West Virginia this past weekend. Despite having a familiarity with the Mountaineer program, this visit allowed for a more clear vision.

Despite being committed to Florida State, three-star wide receiver CJ Worton has always placed West Virginia high on his list throughout the entire process. This past weekend, Worton made a return trip to Morgantown (WVa.).

This time around, Worton received more clarity to what West Virginia had to offer.

"I was able to communicate more with the coaches this time," Worton said. "They showed me the whole place which I didn't get to see before. It was an awesome time … I had a blast. Everything about it was excellent."

During the visit, the 6-foot, 170 pound slot receiver, spoke in-depth with West Virginia coaches about their hopes and expectation for him.

"They told me I had a real good opportunity to come in there and play right away," Worton said. "They told me about all the past receivers who have come through there and had success. The system they have gives them the chance to have success.

Worton, who caught 43 passes for almost 1,100 yards and fifteen touchdowns this past season, believes a spread offense like West Virginia's could utilize his talents.

"West Virginia's offense is everything for a wide receiver," he said. "It's all we want to do, catch passes. It's crazy to have an opportunity to play in that system where there's a demand for receivers to perform. That's one thing I've been looking for throughout this entire process.

Despite his experience at West Virginia, Worton isn't quite ready to shut down the process. A couple visits still remain on the slate, with a decision to come at any time.

"I'll be going to Ole Miss next week and then to Florida," Worton said, detailing his upcoming visit plans. "In between sometime I'll be visiting UCF and Florida State."

"I'll make my decision whenever, it could come at anytime. Whenever I decide in my mind where I want to go to I'll make the decision. It could be today, tomorrow or on signing day. It's whenever I truly figure it out."
