Orlando (Fla.) Jones four-star wide receiver Levonte 'Kermit' Whitfield made his commitment to the Florida State Seminoles public on Monday morning.
“Big time players make big time decisions,” Whitfield said. “Opportunities come once in a lifetime and that’s why I chose this school.”
Whitfield chose the Seminoles over Clemson, Miami, Florida, Ohio State, and West Virginia.
The 5-foot-9, 165-pound speedster shared some of the reasons why he will call Tallahassee his future home.
“I like that it is close to home,” Whitfield said. “I like the atmosphere there. I like the way they would use me. I know people there (cousin Marvin Bracy).”
According to Whitfield, he will be playing slot receiver for the Seminoles.
In addition to contributing on the football field, Whitfield also intends to be a part of the Florida State Track and Field program. He participates in the 100 and 200 meters at the high school level. He hopes to continue to run in those events at the next level.
Whitfield, who previously committed to Miami during the process, says he is now done with the recruiting process and is focused on his senior season on the field. He has yet to schedule an official visit to Florida State.
