Tony Whitehead grabs SEC offer
"I have an offer from Mississippi State," said Tony Whitehead. "They offered me this past weekend. They invited me to their Junior Day and offered while I was there.
"I spoke with coach Dan Mullen. He was telling me they have five senior receivers who were leaving. He told me my freshman year I could possibly start. He said they were trying to get wide receivers. He said they work real hard in the weight room."
Whitehead had a great time at Mississippi State with a high interest in the SEC school.
"The visit was really good," he said. "I like the stadium. I have watched them on TV. I like the way they run their offense. Coach Mullen told me they are going to start throwing the ball a little bit."
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound prospect is also receiving interest from Alabama and Georgia.
"I like the intensity at Alabama," Whitehead said. "If you go to Alabama and do well you are guaranteed to go to the NFL. I like their offense. They play hard, smash-mouth football.
"I like how Georgia runs their offense. They throw the ball a lot. I really like how their offense gets the ball to their receivers to make plays."
Whitehead snagged 51 receptions for 950 yards and 17 touchdowns during his junior season. He recognizes his strengths and areas to improve in the off-season.
"My strength is my strength," Whitehead said. "Once I catch the ball it's hard to bring me down. I will hit you with a stiff arm or spin move. I want to work on my speed and running my routes a little bit better."
