FSU Commit Le’Vonte Whitfield Unlikely to Visit Miami
Le’Vonte Whitfield, a Florida State wide receiver commitment, recently played in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl. The Orlando (Fla.) Jones speedster talked about his experience playing in the last prep football game of his career with XOFan.com.
“The game was good,” Whitfield said. “I was hearing a lot of comments about it. I heard it was better than the Under Armour Game. That it was more intense. I performed good. It wasn’t my best game. It wasn’t a game Kermit played, but it was a game that I did my thing. I scored a 79-yard kick return and I dropped three passes that I could have taken home.”
Now that his high school football career is over, he’ll turn is attention to track and recruiting–two areas that has gone well for him. The once Miami commit was planning to take an official visit to the Canes, but that’s unlikely to happen with scheduling conflicts and National Signing Day only weeks away.
“Miami said they don’t have me coming down on January 18, they have me coming down on the 25,” Whitfield explained. “But, I can’t come down then because I have a track meet. So, I don’t know if I’m going or not.”
From Miami, he’s been keeping in contact with running backs coach Terry Richardson. “He’s real laid back. He doesn’t force anything, he talks to you like a friend.”
Whitfield, 5-foot-9 and 175-pounds, is one of this country’s premier track athletes, even holding a national record in the 60m. He plans on playing football and running track when he enrolls at FSU during the summer.
