Article excerpt

Coatesville High School running back/defensive back DaQuan Worley committed to Penn State Friday, according to his high school coach, Matt Ortega. Worley, 5 feet 10, 175 pounds, is a three-star recruit, according to Rivals.com scouting service. He helped lead Coatesville to the PIAA Class AAAA championship in 2012, losing to North Allegheny.

"What makes him special is the team guy he is," Ortega said. "He's all about his teammates. He's not one of those guys who thinks he's a superstar. He's one of the hardest workers I've ever had, doing everything he can to make himself better."

Worley, who will be a senior at Coatesville in the fall, is Penn State's seventh commitment for the Class of 2014.
