**Watch Out For Worley … The Florida State staff made a late run at two Buckeye commitments, trying their best on Friday to “flip” Christopher Worley and Ezekiel Elliott. The Seminoles were trying to get both to make official visits to Tallahassee over the weekend. However, in neither case did the Seminoles meet with success. In the case of Worley, Christopher Worley Sr. was none too happy with the Seminoles’ all-out effort to “flip” his son. The older Worley told Bucknuts on Friday afternoon that is son was “locked in” as a Buckeye.
But what position will Worley Jr. play once he gets to Ohio State? Even his father isn’t sure right now. Worley Sr. said he really doesn’t know if his son will play linebacker or safety or some combination of the two, but he is very confident his son will play. And he feels his son will play sooner rather than later. Translated, Worley Sr. thinks he will see his son on the field as a true freshman, and not just on special teams.
And from talking to various sources, it’s not just Worley’s father that believes the Buckeyes are getting a special talent. Everyone who has studied the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Worley’s game believes he will be a good collegiate player due to his speed, instincts and toughness. To us, he sounds like a natural fit at OSU’s “star” position (nickel back) much like another former Glenville player was: Jermale Hines.
**Wide Need … We talked in last week’s House about Corey Smith and the winding road he took to his Ohio State commitment. Several things played in Smith’s favor en route to his “committable” offer.
The one we didn’t address last week that came up in a recent conversation with a clued-in source was the current roster. There is no question …
*There’s no question about what as it pertains to OSU’s wide receivers?
*What are the NFL scouts saying about Nathan Williams?
