    Tennessee had a number of visitors on campus over the weekend, including a four-star safety from Georgia. They also welcomed in a four-star Alabama commit to take in practice and visit campus.

    Dazalin Worsham is a four-star wide receiver who plays for Hewitt-Trussville High School in Trussville, Alabama. He arrived in Tennessee on Friday night and watched the Vols go through spring practice on Saturday.

    According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Worsham is the No. 197 overall prospect and No. 35 wide receiver in the 2020 recruiting class. He’s been committed to Alabama for almost a year, committing to the Tide back on April 20th of 2018. He holds two dozen other scholarship offers besides his offer from Alabama, and those other offers include teams like Clemson, Georgia, Auburn, Florida, Michigan, Oregon, and LSU.

    Tennessee offered Worsham back in January of 2018, and he took an unofficial visit to campus almost exactly a year ago in mid-March. The 6-foot, 175-pound receiver hadn’t been back to UT’s campus since then until his visit this weekend.

    Worsham has good speed and isn’t afraid to get physical if he has to. He has very good instincts and reacts to defenders well. He can run clean routes and has a knack for picking the right angle to take on a corner and making the right play. In short, he just knows how to make plays and is dangerous in the open field. He’s gifted despite his lack of elite size, and he’s a player who can run a drag or dig route and a snag route at the goal line effectively, and he’s also good running go routes.

    In his junior season for Hewitt-Trussville, Worsham caught 87 passes for 1,022 yards and 13 touchdowns according to MaxPreps. He’s hauled in over 150 receptions and nearly 1,900 receiving yards in his last two seasons, and he has 22 career receiving touchdowns.

    The Vols are looking to add a few wide receivers to their roster in the 2020 cycle, and Worsham is just one of many at that position who have already visited Tennessee’s campus this year. He’ll be a tough flip away from the Tide, but expect the Vols’ coaching staff to try their hardest if they really want him as part of their 2020 class.
