Scouting Report/Player Notes

Very solid inside linebacker prospect who is slightly undersized but already really productive for the Oklahoma defense. Already proving to be one of the leaders of the Oklahoma defense who had 66 and 71 tackles in his first two seasons, totaling 12 tackles for loss, eight sacks, and two interceptions, both of which he caught in 2011. Wort had arguably the best game of his career in the Insight Bowl against Iowa, where he had 11 tackles and an interception. He’s missed some time due to injury, but he’s an exciting young linebacker prospect who can be an impact player at the next level if he continues to develop.
