Texas offer: Yes

Other top offers: Texas A&M, Oregon, Florida State, Florida

College: Undecided

Scouting Whittington: The four-star athlete made a name at Cuero as a freshman, earning first-team all-district honors in 2015. He improved his game as a sophomore after starring on both sides of the football. He was named his district’s MVP after recording 797 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns to go with 336 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. He intercepted six passes on defense, returning two for touchdowns. Oh, and he added three touchdowns as a returner. Texas offered him on May 9 and Whittington camped at Texas on May 28. He’s a do-it-all athlete who likely projects to wide receiver in college.
