Date Set for Whaley

Four-star running back Devway Whaley is one of the most heavily recruited players in the class of 2016. The No 2 ranked back in Texas checks in from Beaumont (Texas) Central Senior.

Devway Whaley shows great elusiveness, quickness and has nice size at 6-foot, 195-pounds. He has offers from Arkansas, Georgia, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M and Alabama.

”It’s been fun and also a bit hard you know,” Whaley said regarding the overall recruiting process. “No one stands out yet.”

It could come down to Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas for the talented junior who rushed for over 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. Whaley has built strong relations with the Texas coaching staff.

”I have a really good relationship with them,” Whaley said. “I talk to them pretty much everyday and they are cool coaches.”

As things stand today, Whaley is planning to make his announcement at the Under Armour All-America game in early January.

Scout.com Take:

Whaley is a talented running back who is a very impressive athlete. Watching him run, he has the fluidity of a defensive back in how he jumps in and out of his cuts and is able to make defenders miss in tight spaces. Some schools early on were even recruiting him as a defensive back. Has a good build with upper and lower body strength. He does have that great hip/feet combo, but he is tough between the tackles and runs with very good power. – GP
