Miami goes into SEC country and gets an All-American receiver to join the 2020 recruiting class

Miami adds another All-American WR to the 2020 recruiting class

The Miami Hurricanes further bolstered the 2020 recruiting class minutes ago when Trussville (AL) Hewitt-Trussville 4-star WR Dazalin Worsham committed to the Canes.

At 6’0” 185lbs, Worsham is a quick, sudden, dynamic athlete with the ability to run many routes in the route tree, and the speed to score on any play where he gets the ball. When you put on Worsham’s highlights (embedded lower in this piece), you’ll see him get behind the defense repeatedly and with ease. That should be exciting for Hurricanes fans both now and in the future.

As a HS sophomore, Worsham committed to his local school, one that just so happens to be a national powerhouse: Alabama. After being committed to the Tide for more than a year, he decommitted last spring. The timing of that decommitment — 4 days after his official visit to Coral Gables — made many in and around the recruiting industry think that Worsham was going to flip to Miami in short order.

But he didn’t.

Over the next few months, Worsham announced Alabama and Miami as his top 2, but there was little public connection to either. But, due to his hometown and proximity to Alabama, and the Crimson Tide’s stature as one of the preeminent teams in CFB, many assumed he would end up committing back where he started. But THAT didn’t happen either.

All the while, behind the scenes, Miami kept in contact with Worsham, working a long-play seldom seen in recruiting. Miami chipped away at Worsham, steadily convincing him that his talents were needed in Coral Gables, and that ended up being the foundation for today’s commitment.

An Under Armour All-American, Worsham is ranked as the #13 player in Alabama, the #50 WR, and the #289 player overall in the 2020 recruiting class. He picked Miami over Alabama, and joins Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy 4-star Michael Redding III, a fellow Under Armour All-American, and Deerfield Beach (FL) 3-star ATH Xavier Restrepo at receiver in this class.
