Cuero (Texas) standout playmaker Jordan Whittington recently added an offer from the Texas Longhorns. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound four-star could end up on either side of the ball, but his highest potential is on the defensive side of the ball. Whittington was excited upon hearing the Longhorns extended the offer.
“It means a lot,” Jordan Whittington said. “I mean it’s Texas, and they have crazy tradition. The program is good and will turn out great with the new staff and facilities. I talk to Coach Naivar the most and just building relationships, and we talk defense more.”
It remains which side of the ball Whittington will play at the collegiate level, but for now, he is keeping all options open.
“Safety and some offense basically,” Whittington said. “I want to visit the rest of my top 14.”
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
