Miami target Dazalin Worsham decommits from Alabama

Manny Diaz is locked in on the four-star wideout out of Alabama

Over the weekend, the Hurricanes hosted a plethora of prospects from around the country. Two high-profile targets decided to make their trip down to Coral Gables one of their five official visits. One was Keyshawn Lawrence, who has since committed to his hometown Tennessee Volunteers, and the other was Dazalin Worsham.

Worsham had been committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide for well over a year before he went public with his departure from their No. 2 ranked class.

The Hurricanes are looking to add another, potentially two more receivers to this class and his decision to open everything back up bodes well for the Hurricanes given the fact that this happened fresh off his official visit in Miami.

In fact, two respected members of the recruiting community, Steve Wiltfong, who is the director of recruiting for 247Sports, and Andrew Ivins, the Miami insider for 247Sports, put in their “crystal ball” that Worsham will be committing to the Canes.

It’s looking like Miami could have sealed the deal over the weekend the pass catcher out of Hewitt-Trussville (AL).

So IF Worsham does become a Cane some time soon, what type of player is he?

Worsham is listed at 6’0 and 185 pounds on 247Sports and is rated as the 257th player nationally and the 48th ranked wide receiver. But when the ball is in his hands, he is as explosive as they come.

Last season, his high school played against Cedar Grove (GA) and Jadon Haselwood, who needs no introduction with Canes fans, on national television and Worsham showed out. The playmaking receiver caught two touchdown passes, one coming over the top with Haselwood in one-on-one coverage.

When the ball is in his hands, he’s shifty enough to make something happen with it and big enough to fight for the extra yardage when he comes across contact.

I like Miami’s chances a lot here and I believe he is a player that can come in and make an impact on this team when his time comes.

But as we know, it’s not official until he signs his letter of intent, so the Hurricanes need to keep fighting for guys like Worsham and many, many others to keep this class elite.
