Former Alabama commit Dazalin Worsham quiet on his future after Miami visit
For the second time in two years, the four-star recipient Dazalin Worsham and his team from Hewitt-Trussville came to Foley for the 7-on-7 showdown.
For the second time he missed the event due to an injury. This time around, however, he relaxed on the sidelines in a Miami shirt after retiring from Alabama last week.
“It was one of those decisions that he committed to pretty early on and I think he’s just trying to revisit a few things and make the best decision for him,” said Hewitt coach Josh Floyd. “We will support him one way or another and help him in any way we can. But at the end of the day, he has to make the best decision for his family, and that’s exactly what is happening right now. “
The 6-foot-2,180-pound Worsham politely declined to comment on his future on Friday. When he announced his waiver on social media last week, he also said, “Please don’t interview.”
Worsham is currently the # 11 2020 recruit in Alabama, on the composite list of 247. He visited Miami last week. He is returning from an off-season hip replacement. Floyd said he expects to start running next month and do the Huskies fall training session in August. Floyd said – with former Hewitt recipient Javarrius Johnson now in Auburn – Worsham will get more attention from opponents in the fall.
“I don’t know how much his workload will increase,” he said. “He caught 87 passes last year. That’s a lot of receptions, but there will definitely be more eyes on him. We got some young people into it while he was out, which is good. We know what Dazalin can do and he’ll be back in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, we’ve gotten rid of some of these other people as well. “
Worsham was an AL.com second team All-Birmingham team as a junior. His 87 receptions went for 1,022 yards and 13 TDs for the huskies.
“He’s really, really good at one-on-one situations,” said Floyd. “He can obviously run. He’s got speed and size. He’s probably 6-2 now. It’s gotten a little thicker If he goes in and out during breaks it is very difficult to cover him. “
