Although he doesn’t have a myriad of offers yet, Clearwater (Fla.) Countryside 2016 wide receiver Kee Whetzel has the look of a player college scouts will closely track.
“I’m doing track right now, but I’m also training with the football team, so I’m not missing a bunch of stuff,” Whetzel said. “It’s okay, though. I run track to help me out in football and my speed is a big part of my game right now.”
It is this speed that the 6-foot-3, 175-pound receiver believes will help him at the next level.
“Everyone is always working to get faster and I am too," Whetzel said. "It helps though because I have a little bit of gift there.”
Whetzel still has plenty to improve on.
“My route running has to get better and that is a huge focus of mine," he said. "Everyone out here is fast, so it means the difference between catching the ball or not even getting open. I love the passing game and I want to always try to get better.”
Whetzel is looking for a college coach to hone his abilities.
“I’m totally willing to go to any place in the country that can help me become the best player," he said. "I am going to take a close look at each school's passing game. If it’s good I’m going to be interested.”
Although Wetzel is hearing from plenty of schools in the Southeast, he is also hearing from programs in the Pac-12.
“Arizona has started to send me some stuff," he said. "It sounds like they’re going to start recruiting me. We’ll see how it goes. Again, I like any school with a good passing offense.”
