Texas is one of dozens of top college football programs interested in the versatile athlete out of Cuero High School. Whittington previously released his Top 14 programs, which included Florida, Arizona, Texas A&M, LSU, TCU, among others.
Texas was also named as one of Whittington's favorites, though he did not hold an offer from the Longhorns at the time.
Whittington does a bit of everything for his high school team and the jury may be a bit out on what he will be once he arrives in college, but whether he ends up on offense or defense he is a take. A true athlete who stars and dominates the smaller school level in Texas. He is an electric player when he has the ball in is hands on offense. He will at times line up as the Wildcat quarterback and he has the open-field running skill of a running back, but the size and skill of an elite outside receiver. -- Greg Powers, Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst.
