But after a recent visit Mississippi State, Whittemore decided to overturn his commitment to the Bulldogs. It’s a big win for the coach Mike Leach and his staff, who added another weapon to their Air Strike attack.
Whittemore was an interesting prospect in many respects, but mainly because he played quarterback in high school and was predicted to be a wide receiver in college. That’s where his brother plays for the Gators, albeit with limited ability, and his other brother, Troy, plays in Troy.
This season at Gainesville (Fla.) Buchholz, Whittemore has thrown 920 yards with 11 touches and 3 touches, while also dashing 340 yards and 6 points. That ability, plus competing in athletics, makes him an interesting widescreen show in the SEC.

Florida is doing well with this cyclical recipient recruitment and I especially think Eugene Wilson and Aidan Mizell were exceptionally talented people, so Whittemore was not a serious loss. But the fact that he toppled an SEC competitor we all know is going to pitch tons and score points, that’s not the best news ever. – Adam Gyers, National Recruitment Director of Rivals
