2013 WR/DB recruit Jamison Whiting has received the first offer of his recruitment from Northern Iowa. Whiting has received interest from a few major programs, but he is a little-known Minneapolis recruit who has not been rated by recruiting services.
Jamison Whiting looks like a better wide receiver than a safety at this point and has received interest from Duke, Wisconsin, in-state Big Ten school Minnesota, Stanford, and Yale. The Pac-12 and ACC are represented, and Wisconsin and Minnesota are the two Big Ten schools after him with the B1G being the most heavily involved conference in his recruitment thus far.
The 6’3″, 170 pound Washburn High star has terrific size for the positions he plays for and was impressive at an NFTC camp due to this size. The biggest program going after him is Wisconsin, and he visited a spring game in Madison back in late April. Whiting has also received interest from Iowa State, with the Badgers being most intrigued by his size.
That’s the thing with Jamison Whiting, his most valuable asset is his size at either receiver or safety but especially receiver. He knows how to use his size to his advantage, and this holds true at both FS or WR. He had 62 tackles and three picks last year, and Whiting also runs a 4.45 forty with an insane 40-inch vertical. His mix of size, speed, and athleticism are tantalizing, and he is one of the state’s best safeties.
Overall rating: Lower-level three-star recruit but with big upside.
Best attributes: Size, athleticism, versatility.
