The growth of the game from CJ Worsham has resulted in his first division one scholarship offer. The 6’7” 2024 small forward of Christ the King High School in Chicago and the DeNard Bros. program picked up an offer from Cal State Fullerton. During his junior season, he averaged 21 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists.

The offer came following a call with Fullerton head coach Dedrique Taylor. “It feels amazing,” he said about the offer. “It’s a big relief to know that I’m going to play division one basketball.”

This past weekend, Worsham was one of the top players at the 17U level of the loaded NY2LA Swish N’ Dish Tournament. Throughout the tournament Worsham displayed his great versatility and ability on both ends. A very tough defender, but he also had a 27-point game. At 6’7” with his strength he can be force in the paint but also has the skills and mobility to play out on the perimeter. 

As well to the offer from Cal State Fullerton, the junior has interest from division one and two programs as well to some junior college coaches. While he has not taken any visits yet, he is looking forward to taking some now that is recruitment is starting to quickly pick up. 

Over the next few months with DeNard Bros., Worsham is looking to accomplish a couple of different things. “Showcase my talent and all of the hard work and countless hours that I have put in. Show people all of those lonely nights in the gym will pay off and I would love to add more scholarships to the list,” Worsham said. 

DeNard Bros. and Worsham should be a popular target for division one programs in the upcoming live periods later this month.
