Peanut: "I Couldn't Hear Myself Think"

One of the top prospects in the state of Alabama, DE Peanut Whitehead, visited Death Valley this weekend. CUTigers.com caught up with the blue-chip defender Sunday evening to get his thoughts on his trip.

Five-star defensive end Deantwan Whitehead made the trip to Clemson this weekend to watch the Tigers battle the Miami Hurricanes. "I enjoyed it. It was a real good game," Whitehead told CUTigers.com. "The crowd was blasting. It was a real good experience. I couldn't even hear myself think."

The talented athlete also had a chance to speak with the Clemson coaches before the game. "I pretty much talked with all the coaches. I got to speak with Coach Bowden before the game. He said they would put on a show for me," stated the prize recruit.

"They put on a great show. It was a real good game."

Peanut also brought a few of his team's coaches with him to the game. "My weight training coach and my special teams coach came with me to the game. They really liked it, especially with the three overtimes," he said.

What about an official visit? Has Peanut planned one to Clemson?

"I rescheduled my visit to Louisville. I also have a visit scheduled for Arkansas. But I am definitely going to visit Clemson. We talked about it this weekend. We are thinking about going to Clemson the weekend of their football banquet."

Two California teams may get the other two official visits. "Hopefully UCLA and California will get the other two visits. UCLA is supposed to come see me play this week," he added.

When asked if he has any leaders, Whitehead responded, "No, not really."

Whitehead, who committed to the Tigers this summer before retracting his commitment, plans to wait before making another commitment. "I'm still going to wait a while. I am going to take my five visits."

The West End (Ala.) standout had an outstanding game this week. "I had 12 tackles, with three or four for loss. I also had one sack. They called two of my touchdowns back on offense because of penalties," Whitehead added.
