"It's been a rollercoaster," he said of his recruitment. "It's all crazy since I've been home twice all of June because I was camping everywhere. I've gone a little under the radar but [Northern Iowa] was my first offer."
Along with an offer from UNI, Whiting has had interest from other teams.
"Schools that have shown me interest are most of the Big Ten, a couple Ivy League schools, Toledo, Akron, [Northern Illinois], UMASS and some other smaller D1 AA schools," he said.
Minnesota is one of the teams that wanted to watch Whiting perform in person at camp.
"It went alright," he said of the Gopher camp. "I was tired out from all my other camps I still did okay and I had a good conversation with Coach Kill. He's going to be at a lot of our games coming up since we have so many people the U is interested in."
With one offer already and more on the horizon, Whiting knows what he is looking for in a school.
"A good fan base for sure, and I really like that college town feel," he said. "They have to have a law school because I want to go into pre-law."
Whiting believes that he has a lot to bring to a potential college team.
"[I can bring] my ability to stretch the field and football IQ plus an energetic attitude," he said.
Although Whiting isn't done with the recruiting process, he is already aware of when he wants to make his decision.
"I think ill choose after my official visits sometime," he said.
Last season, Whiting totalted 62 tackles, three sacks, three interceptions, eight pass breakups, two fumble recoveries, and two blocked punts. He projects as a wide receiver or defensive back at the college level.
