Did Wisconsin sway DE Worthington

Athol Springs (N.Y.) St. Francis defensive end Doug Worthington took his second official visit, this one to Wisconsin, since committing to Ohio State. How did the Badgers treat him and is he still a Buckeye?
"I am still committed to OSU, but I had a great time on my visit to Wisconsin," said the 6-foot-7, 256-pounder. "I was hosted by Jamal Cooper and I hung out with Erasmus James. Wisconsin is a great place and was a fun experience. It gives me something to think about."
Worthington said the only way he sees himself de-committing from Ohio State would be if there were infractions found during the recent NCAA investigation.
"My dad told me to take some other trips as a backup because you never know what is going to go down, but I'm still committed," he said. "Wisconsin is a good school and I really like the coaches, so I'm glad I went. Once it all shakes out, I'll know for sure where I'm going. As long as nothing happens to OSU, it will be there."
Next up for Worthington is an official visit to Alabama on either Jan. 7 or Jan. 14. He will then trip to Boston College on Jan. 21 and then Florida on Jan. 28.
"These are the other schools that interest me," he said. "Like I said, OSU is where I plan on being, but I need to make sure I have seen other places."
