Competition wasn't Justin Worley's concern.
Worley didn't even blink when he committed to Tennessee on Friday, despite freshman quarterbacks Tyler Bray and Nash Nance already on the roster.
"Not too much," the 6-foot-4, 197-pounder from Northwestern High School in Rock Hill, S.C., said when asked if a crowded depth chart affected his decision. "I know anywhere I go there's going to be competition. I didn't really think about it."
In 2009, he threw for 4,366 yards and 42 touchdowns. As a sophomore, he had 3,641 yards and 50 TDs.
Worley cited a strong connection with UT's coaches and the city of Knoxville as primary reasons why he picked the Vols.
"The town has got everything you want," said Worley, who also considered LSU and Notre Dame. "I really enjoyed visiting here and really want to spend four years there."
The only person more excited than Worley might have been first-year UT coach Derek Dooley.
"He was really excited," Worley said. "He was talking about how happy he was and that I made his day."
Dooley's character-first-approach to recruiting suddenly has six commitments for the 2011 signing class.
"I'd tell them he's a great coach," Worley said when asked about what he'd tell other prospects about Dooley. "He's not only going to develop you as a football player but as an overall individual.
"I think him being at Tennessee is really going to help Tennessee as a football program and show what a great coach he is."
Worley said he is willing to recruit other prospects - a practice common among early quarterback commitments.
"I'm sure the coaches will ask me to talk to some guys. I'm willing to do that," Worley said.
