Glenville standout has U-M interest

Junior athlete Christopher Worley (Cleveland, OH/Glenville) has not gotten the attention he thinks he deserves thus far in the recruiting process. Playing under coach Theodore Ginn at perennial powerhouse Glenville high school, it isn’t hard to slide under the radar at a school with so many division one recruits every year. Brady Hoke and Michigan have their eye on the hard-hitting prospect.

“My head coach deals with all of my recruiting and he tells me that Michigan has started to contact him a lot about me,” said Worley. “I have started to get hand-written letters from the coaches at Michigan a lot lately so I think that they are a school that could possibly offer soon. I ran into Coach Hoke when he came to visit my school earlier in the recruiting period and he said he wanted me to come check out Michigan and that he liked what he saw from me on tape.”

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Worley currently has offers from Arkansas, Bowling Green, and West Virginia. He plans to visit Michigan for their spring game on April 14th.

“I’m really excited to check out Michigan and see what they are all about,” said Worley. “I have always heard great things about their program and I was really proud of the way they played this past season, especially in the Ohio State game. Willie Henry is a good friend of mine and he was telling me all the great things about Michigan just the other day. I hope that they offer because Michigan is a place you can go make a name for yourself.”

Worley also plans on taking in a visit to West Virginia at some point this spring. He mentioned Ohio State as a school showing him plenty of interest but have yet to offer.

“I’m just taking my time with recruiting because I am still getting interest from schools that haven’t offered yet,” said Worley. “I don’t really have a timeline or a plan as to when I wan to make a decision.”

Worley was a devastating tackler at the weak-side linebacker position for Glenville high school this past season, helping them to a 8-3 record. He recorded 75 tackles, three interceptions, and two forced fumbles on the year. With Worley’s long frame and quick burst, he is likely to end up at safety in college.
