Georgia Speedster Talks First Offer

Rome High School Athlete Reggie Whatley talks about his senior year and his first offer.

Even though it was one of the first events I ever attended with Scout it will forever be in my mind. The summer of 08 in the Georgia Dome , a combine with over 200 kids.

Without a doubt my favorite part was the 60 yard race among 3 young men that were the only ones to run under 4.4 that day.

Rome's Reggie Whatley was one of those in that race. He did not win the race( Branden Smith), but he showed he is elite in his speed.

I have had the opportunity to see Whatley play a few times in high school and he is "electric" with the ball in his hands.

He is one of those that make you hold your breath each time he gets the ball in his hands.

What schools did you visit summer?

" I went to Middle Tennessee State and Georgia Tech."

Do you have any offers

"Yes Sir Middle Tennessee State did offer me"

How did you like it up there?

" I liked it alot up there. It is a very nice place and atmosphere. I really like their coaching staff."

" What schools are you hearing from the most?"

" Georgia Tech and Middle Tennessee State. I am going to go see both schools during the season and make a decision after that."

Your season ended in a very close play on the goaline in the semi-finals vs. Marist. What have you been doing to make sure it ends up with a ring this year?

" We have been working hard in the weight room. Trying to do things right on the field. I have really been working hard on being a leader on the field."
