Last weekend, Cuero wide receiver Jordan Whittington took an unexpected visit to Tucson for the Arizona Wildcats game against the California Golden Bears. On Tuesday, the longtime Texas Longhorns commit affirmed his pledge to the Horns:

Arizona originally offered in March of 2017 when Rich Rodriguez was still the head coach, with Kevin Sumlin continuing Whittington’s recruitment after taking over the Wildcats program. Sumlin had previously recruited the 6’1, 198-pounder when he coached the Aggies.
However, despite those ties, it appears that there isn’t any cause for concern with Whittington, who committed to Texas back in March. After all, he’s been a vocal recruiter for the Longhorns, notably showing up on campus to help host No. 1 running back Trey Sanders in June.
A consensus four-star prospect ranked as the No. 44 player nationally and the No. 8 wide receiver in the country, Whittington is the No. 5 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Unfortunately, Whittington isn’t likely to climb in the rankings at the next update, as he hasn’t played this season due to a groin injury. However, there’s no question that he’s a dynamic talent when healthy, with the ability to play on both sides of the ball.
