Kenderius Whitehead, a 6-4, 200 pound defensive end from Georgia, picked NC State on Wednesday. Since it's too soon for articles, I'll just point to his announcement on Twitter:
I've decided to play my next four Years of college Football at NC State. Why? Because its in my heart. # 9 Go Wolfpack— OVOXO (@ShwtyTheTruth) January 19, 2012
Whitehead is rated a three-star prospect by both Rivals and Scout, though ESPN gave him four stars. He holds offers from a bunch of BCS schools, including Georgia and Georgia Tech, Nebraska, Florida, Notre Dame, Arkansas, Clemson, North Carolina, and Virginia Tech. I don't pretend to know how the whole prospect ratings thing works, but that offer sheet is impressive. So he certainly passes the offer sheet test.***
Here are some highlights of Whitehead's work in high school; I especially like the first one, where he just runs really fast and jumps on a horribly botched punt snap.
(***Not a real test.)
