Three Offers and a Leader for Worthington

Tyrell Worthington is now up to three scholarship offers and would not be surprised to see additional tenders come his way in the very near future.

"I got offers from N.C. State, Virginia Tech, and one from ECU," said Worthington. "A couple of other schools are talking about offering – Virginia, and [North] Carolina."

Each of the schools that have extended a football scholarship, hope to also see Worthington on their baseball diamond as he is considered to be one of the better baseball prospects in the state.

"I plan on playing both of them in college," said Worthington. "All the [offering] schools want me to play both [sports] in college."

The leading candidate for Worthington's dual sports skills is N.C. State following a recent unofficial visit to Raleigh.

"I like N.C. State, they are my leader," said Worthington. "When I attended their junior day, they showed us around and they told us about the history behind it. I like their prestige."

Worthington has also attended East Carolina's junior day, and plans to revisit N.C. State for the Wolfpack's summer camp.
