North Carolina looking early at Worley

North Carolina is apparently making an early push for Rock Hill Northwestern rising junior QB Justin Worley, who camped in Chapel Hill over the weekend. We’ve heard that the Tar Heels made Worley a verbal offer, and that a number of other schools have done the same thing.

Worley (left) is already 6-foot-5, giving him great quarterback size. But Northwestern coach Jimmy Wallace is even more impressed with the mental side of his young QB.

“He’s the most mature tenth grade player I've had in 37 years of coaching,” Wallace said. “He has tremendous potential.”

Worley is a natural athlete, also a standout in baseball (pitcher) and basketball (forward).

Next season, he could blossom into a national recruiting target, and obviously UNC wants in on the ground floor.
