DE Quandeski Whitlow of Opelika, AL has been committed to USC since June and he’s held to that pledge thus far. But schools are still coming at him hard and Whitlow his listening.
“Louisville has started to come at me pretty hard,” Whitlow said. “Kentucky still wants me to come to games. Mississippi State, Nebraska.”
Whitlow has set his official visit with USC for January 24th and he’s also set one with Louisville January 17th. He also plans to set official visits with Kentucky and Mississippi State. But despite those plans, Whitlow doesn’t foresee breaking his pledge to the Gamecocks.
“It’s still good,” he said of the commitment. “Even though the season probably ain’t what they expected or wanted, I’m a 100% commitment. I just come from a small town and want to get out while I can. Me and coach Botkin have built a good relationship and we talk every week. When you make a commitment to the team you have to be a man of your word. Coach told me if I work I can get up to number two on the depth chart my freshman year so it’s a great possibility for me to play.”
Whitlow has not been to any games this season. He had planned to go to Auburn this Saturday to watch the Gamecocks play the Tigers but he’s taking the ACT this Saturday and that likely will prevent him from going.
This season Whitlow has 34 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 14 quarterback hurries, 21 tackles for loss and has caused 4 fumbles.
