Whittier Christian HS DT Jeff Worthy (La Habra, CA) will arrive in Boise this summer as one of the most coveted signees in program history. Right now, the future Bronco is preparing for the summer workouts by hitting the weight room every day and is getting bigger, faster, and stronger in the process.

"I'm doing the workout they sent me," he said. "The lifting itself doesn't make me sweat too much, but the running sure does. The workout is mainly low sets and high reps. Overall, it's a good workout and I'm sure it's preparing me well for the summer."

"I spoke to Coach K (Kwiatkowski) about three or four days ago," he stated. "We talked a little about the workouts and a player from my team that they're interested in, Dan Abernathy. He was just getting my opinion and wanted to know if he'd fit the program. He's an OLB, about 6'2, and has no fat on him. Both his parents are nutritionists. He'll be at the camp in June."

Looking back, Worthy describes the recruiting process as "crazy."

"It was crazy," Worthy said. "Coaches were calling all the time trying to get me to go their school. It's a bit of an honor since not too many kids get that and there were some unbelievable schools recruiting me. Still, Boise State is where it's at and was the best fit for me."

The talented DT has been getting some tips from (current Bronco) Billy Winn. The two text back and forth quite frequently and Worthy says he's eager to learn from one of the best.

"Billy is like my older brother. He texts me a good bit and lets me know how the workouts are going," he said. "I'm really looking forward to learning from him. Just one year with him will allow me to up my game amazingly. Hopefully, I can get that spot after he leaves."

Expectations will be high once again this season as the Broncos will likely be a pre-season top ten team. Jeff believes this team has what it takes to make a run at the National Championship.

"Oh yeah, I think we're going to be real good," he said. "We got that (Dextrell) Simmons kid transferring in from Blinn College. He's supposed to bring some crazy athleticism and we've got seven starters back on defense. I think the offense will be outstanding too. We just need some receivers to step up. I really think we'll have a great team."

Jeff Worthy (6'4, 290) will arrive in Boise on June 26th.

"It's getting there. I'm ready for it," he said. "I'll be there for about four weeks and then I'll come back for a week or two. It'll be crazy after that since I'll be on my own for the first time," he added.

Worthy finished the 2010 season with 10 sacks and 79 tackles.
