No. 1 Alabama prospect high on the Tigers

Because the Tigers are pursuing a select group of prospects in this cycle as they look to fill the limited remaining spots in their 2018 class, Clemson’s visitor list for Saturday’s game versus Boston College was comprised mostly of 2019 and 2020 recruits.

Clemson continued to lay the foundation with certain future prospects, and one of those it welcomed to campus was 2020 wide receiver Dazalin Worsham.

The four-star from Trussville (Ala.) Hewitt-Trussville made the visit with a couple of teammates, 2018 four-star safety Myles Mason and 2020 four-star cornerback Malachi Moore.

“It was my second time (on campus), and I loved it,” Worsham told The Clemson Insider.

What stood out to Worsham about the experience?

“The atmosphere, facilities and playing around shooting basketball,” he said.

Worsham — who is ranked as the top prospect in Alabama for 2020 — spoke with head coach Dabo Swinney, receivers coach Jeff Scott, area recruiter Todd Bates and recruiting coordinator Brandon Streeter.

He was given some individual attention by Streeter while on the sideline before the Tigers’ 34-7 win.

“They were telling me that they’re really interested and going to keep a close eye on me and want to get me back up there,” Worsham said of what he heard from the coaches.

Just a sophomore, Worsham (6-1, 165) already owns offers from the likes of Auburn, Florida and Georgia. Schools such as Alabama, Florida State and LSU are showing interest along with Clemson.

Clemson impressed Worsham during the visit and figures to be a contender if it offers in the future. He said the school is one of his favorites early in the process.

“Right now I like Clemson, Florida State, LSU, Florida and Georgia,” he said.

Worsham is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 1 prospect in Alabama, a top-10 receiver and top-50 overall prospect in his class.
