"I committed to Ole Miss," added Julian Whitehead. "I am actually down here right now. I am starting school tomorrow. MTSU wanted me real badly, but I decided to go with Ole Miss. The opportunity was just too good."
did this all come about?
"Actually, this week. My boy Jared Mitchell
is already down there, so I joined him. I start tomorrow. We are waiting on the
clearinghouse to clear me, and I will be ready to roll. But I already enrolled
today and moved all in. They overnight my transcript to the clearinghouse so I
am just waiting on it."
Two additional Hargrave players also took
in an official visit to Ole Miss this past weekend.
"I am pretty sure
Andrew Harris is coming. I am about 95% sure of that, but he is taking a couple
more visits. And Enrique Davis, he just laughs about everything so nobody can
get a read on him. I have no idea where he is going. Everybody in the country
is trying to get him. He is worth it though. "Q" is the best player
I have ever seen."
Julian reaped the benefits from a season at Hargrave.
game is like night and day better now. It went real good. I had 4 int's, 1 forced
fumble, and 8 pass break ups. I started at left cornerback the last four games.
I got so much better because of the competition I was playing against. I was going
up against pro like receivers every day in practice. I progressed a lot this year."
most did the former Parkview (GA) standout progress in?
the speed. That is what helped me for this level. Those guys were All-Americans
out of high school. They had college speed. I got a lot faster and learned how
to play at a faster pace. I am much better now."
Julian tore his ACL
at a summer football camp before the start of his senior season and had to miss
the year which led him to Hargrave.
"I was getting recruited pretty
good until I tore my ACL. Then everybody just quit calling. I knew a year at Hargrave
would get my name back out there, and here I am, about to play in the SEC. It
does not get any better than this. And you ought to see the campus and area at
Ole Miss. It is nothing like I have ever seen. It looks like something out of
a movie. This is a dream come true.
