Whisnant, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard out of Cherryville High School, committed to the Seminoles. Last week Appalachian State, South Carolina, VCU, Asheville and Charlotte watched him. Had he not pledged, Wake Forest and North Carolina were coming to see him this week.
"It was getting hot," Terry Whisnant Sr. told Scout.com. "He just more or less liked what the assistants said to him. He never got a chance to talk to Coach Hamilton until recently. He told Coach Harrill that was his guy and he wanted him. He just wanted to go to Florida State. Everything worked out, that's exactly where he wanted to go."
Whisnant is one of the state's top rising seniors and one of the best shooters we've seen this spring. As a junior, Whisnant connected on a staggering 51% of his 3-pointers and shot lights out at the recent Carolina Challenge.
