After setting an Oct. 1 commitment date a few weeks ago, five-star 2019 Cuero wide receiver and top Texas Longhorns target Jordan Whittington will be taking a bit more time with the recruiting process, he announced via Twitter.

Whittington is ranked as the nation’s No. 25 overall player, No. 5 overall wide receiver, and the No. 4 overall player from the state of Texas, per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Along with his duties at wide receiver, he’s a talented defensive back as well. The 6’1”, 198-pound recruit was first offered as a defensive back by the Texas staff, but, with his desire to play wide receiver at the next level, Texas later offered him at wide receiver.
Whittington is down to Texas, Texas A&M, Florida, and UCLA as his final four. Texas is considered to be a heavy favorite for the five-star wide receiver. Texas currently holds a strong 75 percent Crystal Ball prediction. Texas A&M and Florida are tied for second at 12 percent.
He visited Texas A&M yesterday in their 45-21 win over the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns. Whittington also showed some love to Florida and Texas during their games on Saturday via Twitter.
