The linebacker prospect was committed to Syracuse since the summer and chose USF over Syracuse and Rutgers.
"USF has a great coaching staff, I love the campus, they play in a great city, and the people there are just great," said Whitehurst. "The campus there is great and they have a really good team that's coming up. They have a lot of good people surrounding the program."
Whitehurst is teammates of USF commit Chris Bivins, claimed 14 offers and had around 160 total tackles, 10 TFL, 3.5 sacks, 3 INT, 1 FF, and 2 FR.
"Athletic, hard hitting, physical, nose for the ball, playmaking linebacker," said Holtz on Whitehurst. "I went and watched him play a game and I think he made every tackle. He can run sideline to sideline, yet can play inside the tackles as well."
Whitehurst joins his former teammate CB Chis Bivins, who enrolled with USF this spring.
