Justin Worley didn’t even need a whole quarter to steal the show and complete a huge comeback. The Northwestern (S.C.) High School quarterback and Tennessee commit didn’t even need five minutes.
Worley tossed five of his six touchdown passes in a 4-minute, 50-second span on Saturday against rival South Pointe in a game televised by ESPNU, leading the Trojans back from an early hole to pull away for a 48-20 win that opened a few eyes around the country.
And though the performance certainly caught the attention of recruiters, after it was over Worley reiterated his intention to stick with the Vols.
“(Doing this at UT) is something I think about and it’s something I’ve been able to talk about with some of the other commits to the program,” Worley told ESPN.com. “We are all going to do our part to help the program and we want people to know that Tennessee is bringing in quality players that will work hard to get the program back to the top.
“I fully support the coaching staff and the way they are doing things. I believe Coach Dooley will turn out to be a great ambassador for the school.”
