"This was the first time I have ever heard anything from the Sooners," Whitehead said. "I am very interested."
Whitehead has been taking in college games on Saturdays and knows a few big games he plans to attend.
"I want to attend the Alabama-LSU game, but will probably go to the Georgia-Auburn game instead," he said. "I will definitely attend the Iron Bowl."
Whitehead has set official visits with Louisville and Arkansas. He hopes to schedule his announcement with Countdown to Signing Day on national signing day.
He will appear as a guest with Sports Extra on NBC-13-Birmingham for 'Bone-Up on Recruiting' Sunday night (11pm) October 30.
