Whitfield will make official visit to OSU

7/12/2012

There’s an ESPN 150 athlete very interested in Ohio State. So much so that Levonte Whitfield (Orlando, Fla./Jones) will use one of his official visits to come to Columbus and see what the Buckeyes are all about.

The 2013 recruit named a top six of West Virginia, Florida State, Miami, Ohio State, Clemson and Florida almost a week ago, and likes what he sees at Ohio State.

“When I went out there [for one of Ohio State’s June camps], it was good. I really enjoyed it,” Whitfield said. “It was my first time out there and it was good.”

Whitfield, who is 5-foot-9 and 176 pounds, ran a 4.37 40-yard dash in Beaverton, Ore., last weekend at The Opening. He indicated he will take his time in figuring out which school is the right fit.

While he hasn’t selected a date for his official visit just yet, he’s looking for Ohio State to really pop when he catches a game in The Horseshoe.

“I expect for it to be even better because people will be in school,” Whitfield said. “I expect 102,000 to show up, like they say.”
