USF flips LB Tashon Whitehurst from Cuse

Gainesville LB Tashon Whitehurst, a standout LB that committed to Syracuse has flipped his commitment and now will be a Bull. Read on for all the details about the 6-foot-3, 195 pound linebacker prospect decision.

Gainesville's Tashon Whitehurst, a 6-foot-3, 190 pound linebacker and Syracuse commit was set for a signing day decision, and the Bulls got good news when Whitehurst announced he'll be a Bull.

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.
