LB/RB Len’Neth Whitehead of Athens, GA made his official visits to USC last weekend for the Kentucky game. The Gamecocks put on a solid display for Whitehead running the ball and stopping the run, and that was important to show Whitehead because he could play on either side of the ball in college.
His coach talked with Whitehead about the visit earlier this week and came away feeling the Gamecocks further helped their chances with him by what they showed him.
“He really enjoyed his time at South Carolina, it was a great experience,” coach Josh Alexander said. “He’s really high on South Carolina and he really likes what he sees and what they are telling him. He really loves coach (Will) Muschamp. He’s really excited about it. They’re not sure yet (on his position). They’re recruiting him as a linebacker and maybe a running back. I don’t know what they’re saying in that area, but I know that Len’Neth likes them a lot.”
Whitehead has also taken an official visit to Tennessee and he will take an official visit to Wisconsin the middle of this month according to his coach. Alexander said Whitehead also likes Tennessee and Georgia. The Bulldogs have been showing interested and also have offered.
“I think he’s just trying to take his visits and and talk to people and talk to players and see what he likes,” Alexander said adding that he thinks Whitehead probably will make his decision within the next month and a half.
