Read on to see what he had to say.

Canes Warning: How was the Al Golden football camp?  Did you get to meet all of the coaches?

  • C.J. Worton: The camp was really good.  I’ve met most of the coaches [before].

CW: What was it about Florida State that made you commit?

  • CJW: I just felt a really good connection with the coaching staff they had at the time.  Coach Coley was still there.

CW: What is it that you like most about FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher?

  • CJW: Coach Jimbo is just a really cool coach.  I enjoy all of our talks and his passion for the game.

CW: I read that your dad is a Miami fan, correct?  How did he feel about you committing to the Noles?

  • CJW: Yeah, my dad is a die hard Canes fan.  He was extremely proud of me when I committed to FSU.  In the end he just wants me to be successful.

CW: Is it difficult to balance school with recruiting?

  • CJW: School and recruiting go hand-in-hand.  The easier you make school, the easier you make the recruiting process.

CW: What other camps do you plan on attending?

  • CJW: I’m going on a camp trip to FSU, Georgia, Tennessee and West Virginia.

CW: What are some areas in your game that you would like to improve?

  • CJW: I’d like to improve on my elusiveness and add more excitement to my game.

CW: What NFLer would you say you resemble?

  • CJW: I see myself as a Devon Bess type of player with good routes and good hands.

CW: So what do you like to do in your free time?

  • CJW: I’m always playing basketball in my free time – just trying to stay in shape.

CW: Lastly, what is some advice that you can give to younger athletes?

  • CJW: Some advice that I would give would be to not act like you are a top athlete.  Be humble and work at getting better everyday.

In his junior year at South Dade, Worton caught 26 passes for 473 yards and eight touchdowns.

From watching his film, Worton runs crisp routes and has good hands.  He has the ability to create separation from defensive backs and shows a good burst of speed when in the open field.  His athleticism allows him to make big plays and he has a knack for finding the end-zone.
