Shockley on ATH Levonte Whitfield's future 

August, 14, 2012
Former University of Georgia and Atlanta Falcons quarterback D.J. Shockley coached the offense for the Southeast team at Champion Gridiron Kings this July. Shockley shared his thoughts with ESPN's NoleNation on new Seminoles commitment Levonte Whitfield, a wide receiver on Team Southeast, and how he feels the four-star prospect projects at the college level.

What were your initial thoughts after watching him go against some of the country's best in the 7-on-7 tournament at Disney's ESPN Wide World of Sports?

Shockley: He reminds me a lot of a guy I played with, Damien Gary, at Georgia, but he's a little bit faster. He is a shifty guy that understands concepts, he understands where I need him to be. That is going to bode well for him, especially on the next level ... All the plays that I was calling for us, they were pro plays, college plays that he had to understand coverages, had to understand where he's supposed to be. I think he is already ahead of the curve as far as understanding what defenses are trying to do and where you need to be. I think he has all the physical attributes to play on the next level so it should be interesting.
