No. 1 Alabama recruit 'loved' Clemson visit

In late January, Clemson extended an offer to Dazalin Worsham, the top-ranked prospect in the state of Alabama for the class of 2020.

The four-star wide receiver from Hewitt-Trussville High School in Trussville, Ala., made his first visit to Clemson last September for the Boston College game.

Worsham (6-1, 170) returned to Clemson this past Saturday for the program’s junior day.

“It was great,” he told TCI. “I loved it.”

Worsham especially enjoyed sitting down with Clemson wide receivers coach Jeff Scott during the visit.

“Me and coach Scott had about a 45-minute meeting together in the WR meeting room,” Worsham said.

Clemson bills itself as “Wide Receiver University,” an allusion to its tradition of success and production of NFL players at the position.

During their meeting, Scott showed Worsham data to support the “WRU” claim.

“He just showed me stats from how their WRs over the last couple of years compare to other schools and everything,” Worsham said, “and how they are truly WRU.”

Worsham was able to watch the Tigers’ spring practice that day, as well, and noticed something their receivers did well.

“They were good with their routs,” he said.

In addition to Clemson, Worsham already boasts offers from the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU and Tennessee as a sophomore.

The Tigers registered another strong impression on Worsham during the junior day, and Clemson is one of his favorite schools early in his recruitment.

“Just the family feeling and the relationship I have with the coaches,” Worsham said of what stands out about Clemson. “They’re definitely one of the top.”

Worsham is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 1 prospect in Alabama, No. 10 receiver No. 47 overall prospect in the 2020 class.

Last year, Worsham grabbed 70 passes for 856 yards and nine touchdowns. He was named to the 2017 MaxPreps Sophomore All-American Team following the season.
