3-star LB: OSU-Michigan is can't-miss

Three-star linebacker Christopher Worley (Cleveland/Glenville) plans to make bookend visits to Ohio State this season.

After taking in the season opener when the Buckeyes played Miami (Ohio), the 6-foot-3, 190-pound prospect will be at the Michigan game Nov. 24.

“I’m going to that Michigan game,” Worley said. “I don’t know yet if it’s official or unofficial. That’s one of the greatest -- actually that is the greatest rivalry in college football. I’m going down there and checking it out.”

With an offer from Ohio State and interest from the Wolverines, Worley is still doing his homework, but he’s there for other reasons as well. One of them is to check on the pipeline that runs from Glenville to Columbus.

“Most likely [I’ll make visits] at the end of the season or in a couple weeks if it [ends] early. But with that game, I’m expecting a good game and wanting to see some of our former players play,” he said.

Worley's interest in the Buckeyes hasn’t waned, despite Tyquan Lewis (Tarboro, N.C./Tarboro) committing a little more than a week ago. In fact, Worley likes Ohio State more now than he did in Week 1.

“I just see improvement with the team,” he said. “Like Coach Urban [Meyer] says, there’s a long way to go. I’m focusing on the season, but I’m real excited to get to that game.”
