Very rarely will anyone get to see someone as electric and elusive as four-star Cuero wideout Jordan Whittington off the line of scrimmage. Unless head coach Tom Herman has plans to redshirt Whittington for the 2019 season, he should find his way onto the field quite a bit just thanks to his overwhelming level of elusiveness and speed.
Whittington could not have showed out better during the high school state playoffs, and he won Offensive and Defensive MVP in the state title game. He combined for more than 350 total yards and seven touchdowns on his way to a record-breaking performance in his high school state title game.
However, the Horns are getting more talent and experience back in the receiving corps for 2019 than originally anticipated. Texas is set to lose would-be rising senior wide receiver Lil’Jordan Humphrey, and his absence will be felt. But, Texas is getting back a host of impactful receivers including rising seniors Collin Johnson and Devin Duvernay.
As a recruit, Whittington ranks as the No. 53 2019 high school prospect in the nation and the ninth best wide receiver. At 6-foot-0 and 200 pounds, few will be able to match the foot speed and elusiveness of Whittington. He should be able to help the Horns start to replace the versatility that will be so sorely missed from the departed Humphrey.
