Whittington Still Interested in Texas Tech

Cuero receiver Jordan Whitten talks Texas Tech and his overall recruitment.

Texas Tech was one of the first offers for 2019 Cuero wideout Jordan Whittington, and since that offer last summer, the talented sophomore has blown up - receiving offers from the likes of LSU, Ohio State, Texas A&M, and Stanford, among others. 

"It's been going good. It's real good that I've been getting noticed this early in the recruiting process. I'm just taking it step-by-step and being humble."

Despite releasing a Top 14 that did not include Texas Tech, the 4-star receiver emphasized that he is still considering the West Texas university.

"I really love the receivers coach [Emmett Jones], and the way Tech has an Air Raid-type offense, they throw the ball a lot. That's the main thing that sticks out to me when I think about Texas Tech. And then, being here in Texas, it's not that far from home."

Tech offered 2018 Cuero tight end Bralen Taylor last week, Whittington's teammate, and he couldn't be more excited for his fellow Gobbler.

"It's good for him. He's a great guy. I don't know how Texas Tech uses tight ends, but if they do, then he'd be a good fit."

Whittington plans on taking a visit to Texas Tech later this year.

"I plan to visit all the schools that I'm interested in, then I will cut my list down. I should be verbally committing next year around this time. I should be visiting Texas Tech, I have a friend that is going to school there, so I should be visiting since I have somebody there I can stay with since it's so far away."

Jordan Whittington holds offers from Arizona, Florida, LSU, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, and UCLA, among others. He reports interest from Florida State and North Carolina, among others.
