As a byproduct of the coaching changes that have taken place as of late, elite 2019 Cuero wide receiver Jordan Whittington has made changes to his top schools list, he announced on Sunday.

After originally announcing a top four of Texas, Texas A&M, Florida and UCLA during the summer, Whittington has now added Oklahoma and Ohio State to his list.

A five-star prospect who plays both sides of the ball for Cuero, Whittington spent his junior season hauling in 65 receptions for 1,318 yards and 16 touchdowns, while rushing another 34 times for 227 yards and five scores. On the other side of the ball, Whittington notched 41 total tackles, three interceptions and two pass breakups.

Texas has offered Whittington at wide receiver and defensive back, although Whittington prefers to play receiver at the next level.

As far as Whittington’s recruitment is concerned, the elite in-state athlete initially set an Oct. 1 commitment date, but changed his plans soon thereafter on Sept. 17. The ‘Horns were the projected pick at that time and although another decision date hasn't been set, Texas remains in a good position with the Cuero product.

At 6-’1, 198 pounds, Whittington is ranked as the nation’s No. 26 player, No. 7 wide receiver and the No. 5 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
