FSU pledge Whitfield recaps official visit

By Corey Dowlar

ESPN 150 athlete Levonte Whitfield (Orlando, Fla./Jones) made his official visit to Florida State and got to know the city and the players a little better.

"It was really good," he said. "I enjoyed going out."

Marvin Bracy, a track star in his own right like Whitfield, played host to the speedster this weekend.

"My host was my cousin," he said. "I liked hanging out with the other players and all that stuff, too."

Whitfield, of course, has been on campus at Florida State several times unofficially. Officials are different in nature, usually, but this wasn't too far off.

"I didn't think it was that different," said Whitfield. "It was kind of the same to me."

With signing day just under a month away, Whitfield says he can't wait to get started. Visiting Tallahassee this weekend only intensified it.

"I am excited to sign with FSU and get started," he said.

Whitfield committed to Florida State in August.
