Jalen Whitlow talks departed coach
"I really don't know what to think right now," said Jalen Whitlow. "I heard about it today. I heard the head coach took the Ole Miss job. I was told the offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator left.
"I tried to get in touch with someone. I called, and I sent a text. Nobody has responded yet. I guess they are busy. I really don't know what to think right now. I am lost and confused. I am just trying to gather info."
Whitlow was asked if he is still committed to the Red Wolves.
"I guess, but I really don't know," he responded. "That's the offense I wanted to play in. I don't know if that is the best fit for me anymore. Maybe they will call me and want me at Ole Miss."
Whitlow was a standout this season and shared the signal caller duties with Justin Thomas in a two-quarterback system. He saw his stock rise and more offers came his way.
"I have been talking to Middle Tennessee and a few other schools," Whitlow said. "FIU offered me not too long ago. Minnesota offered me last week. I have been talking to Auburn. I talked to coach Malzahn after the Iron Bowl. They want me to come over for a visit."
Whitlow talked more about Prattville capturing another state title with a 35-34 win against Hoover.
"It felt great to win it," he said. "Everyone counted us out when we lost to Opelika during the season. Everyone thought we just had a lot of hype. It made us stronger, and we worked hard. We were hands-down the best team in the state, and in my opinion the nation."
