Notable: Worton’s older brother Cody played at Florida with Tim Tebow from 2006-2010. Worton decommitted from Florida State after being a commit for months. As a senior Worton had 15 touchdowns on 1,052 yards receiving that helped lead South Dade to the state championship game against Apopka.

Quotable: “My brother went there when Tim Tebow was there so he was there when Florida was the top school in the country,” Worton said after receiving his Florida offer. “He doesn’t really affect my decision but it does help that I have a little more comfortable zone with Gainesville and stuff.  My brother did call to congratulate me and was joking around about me wearing his number there.”
