‘Trust in Sark’: Superstar WR Xavier Worthy Staying With Longhorns Despite NIL Lure

The speculation of Worthy transferring mounted after Texas' 5-7 season

There might not be a more explosive or dynamic player in the country than Texas Longhorns wideout, Xavier Worthy

And over the weekend, it appears that at least one Power 5 program tried to lure the young Longhorns superstar away via a massive NIL deal. 

However, despite those overtures, Worthy is sticking with Steve Sarkisian and the Horns.

The first thing on his mind? Winning a Big 12 championship.

The 62 catches also led all freshmen and earned him Freshman All-American honors.

The dominos from to Arch Manning's Longhorns commitment continue to fall, and this time its a big one.

Marion, who orchestrated a Pitt Panthers' receiving group that was No. 5 in the nation in yards per game (350.2) last season, has been drilling key lessons into Worthy's head early on in spring ball. 

“He basically tells me ‘last year didn’t count," Worthy said of Marion. "It’s what you do this year that counts. What you did last year doesn’t matter.’”

With a year of experience under his belt, Worthy will once again be Texas' No. 1 option in the passing game. And under the guidance of Sarkisian and Marion, his trajectory only has room to grow.
