A native of North Carolina, Worley attended Northwestern High School in Rock Hill, South Carolina, where he played high school football and was teammates with wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. As a sophomore, Worley led Northwestern to state championship game against town-rival South Pointe High School.
Regarded as a three-star recruit by Rivals.com, Worley was listed as the No. 24 pro-style quarterback in his class. He was selected as the national high school Gatorade Player of the Year in 2010.
Worley played backup to Tyler Bray during most of his first two seasons (2011–2012) at Tennessee and only started nine times before the 2013 season. Once the 2013 season started, Worley was named the starter for most of the time when he was healthy.
On October 22, 2011, Worley was pushed into action against #2 Alabama Crimson Tide in relief of Matt Simms. Worley did not record any meaningful statistics except one rush for no yards in his first appearance for the Vols in the 37-6 defeat at Bryant-Denny Stadium. After a 14-3 home loss to South Carolina the next week at Neyland Stadium, Worley recorded his first career win with the Volunteers against Middle Tennessee. In the 24-0 home victory over the Blue Raiders, Worley threw his first career Tennessee touchdown to wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers. Worley's last appearance in the 2011 season came in a 49-7 loss to #8 Arkansas at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Worley had 208 yards passing and one interception in the defeat. Tyler Bray would return from injury to finish out the 2011 season for the Volunteers.
In the 2012 season, Worley did not appear much as Bray was the starting quarterback for most of the season. On September 8, 2012, against Georgia State, Worley came into the blowout 51-13 win to finish the game in relief of Bray. Against #1 Alabama, Worley relived Bray in the 44-13 defeat. In the penultimate game of Tennessee's 2012 season against Vanderbilt, Worley made his last appearance of the season after Bray got benched by head coach Derek Dooley, who would be fired after the game. Worley recorded 51 passing yards and interception in the 41-18 defeat.
Going into the 2013 season, Tennessee had a new head coach, Butch Jones. Worley was named the starting quarterback after training camp. During the 2013 season, he was able to find some success but his personal achievements did not lead to overall team success. In the season opener againast Austin Peay, Worley had a solid outing with 104 passing yards and three touchdowns in the 45-0 win. However, after a 52-20 win over Western Kentucky, he was benched after a poor performance in Tennessee's 59-14 loss to Oregon for Nathan Peterman. Peterman started the next game against the Florida Gators, but played poorly in the first half. Worley was put into the game in the second half of the 31-17 defeat, and he was named the starter once again. One of his most notable performances in 2013 was against #6 Georgia, where Tennessee lost a narrow game 34-31 in overtime. He had a season-high 215 passing yards in the defeat. He had a solid performance against #11 South Carolina, where he led Tennessee to its first win over a ranked team in several years with a game-changing pass to Marquez North, which set up a field goal as time expired to win the game by a score of 23-21. The next week, he sustained a season-ending thumb injury against #1 Alabama. Freshman Joshua Dobbs relived Worley in the 45-10 loss and would be named the starter for the rest of the 2013 season going forward.
In 2014, Worley returned from his thumb injury was named the starting quarterback for the Vols for his senior season. He started in seven games in his senior season with the Vols. He started the season opener against Utah State. In the 38-7 victory, he had 273 passing yards and three touchdowns. Worley would have solid outings over the next two weeks but with very different results. Against Arkansas State, Worley had 247 passing yards and two touchdowns in the 34-19 victory. Against #4 Oklahoma the following week, Worley had 201 yards passing and a touchdown, but suffered through five sacks, in the 34-10 defeat at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman, Oklahoma. Against #12 Georgia two weeks later, Worley had 264 yards passing and three touchdowns in the narrow 35-32 defeat at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Georgia. After a narrow 10-9 defeat to Florida and a 45-10 victory over Chattanooga, Worley would play in the last game of his Tennessee career against Ole Miss. Worley was injured in the 34-3 loss and was relived by Nathan Peterman. Worley would have season-ending shoulder surgery from the injury he sustained in the Ole Miss game. His season totals were 1,579 passing yards, 12 touchdowns, 8 interceptions, 62.3% completion percentage, and was notably sacked 29 times, of which some blame was given to the inexperience of Tennessee's young offensive line in the 2014 season. Tennessee would finish the season with a 7-6 record and became bowl eligible for the first time since 2010. Worley's contributions before his injury played a role in Tennessee returning to a bowl game.
