Here is what thinks about Zach Whitley after evaluating him on tape an in person...

LB Zach Whitley

North Shore HS | TX

Team: West
Region: Midlands
Recruiting: UCLA

Film Eval: He is a bit of a throw-back in the sense that he plays hard and is a player who is present for nearly every snap throughout the entire game.

Army Eval: Whitley came in to the game as a highly rated player and showed that he deserved his lofty ranking. He is a more versatile linebacker than I even gave him credit for previously. He played pretty much inside all the time in high school and showed that he has a nose for the football, but got the chance to show in the practices and in the game that he can also play outside linebacker as well. He is best in run support and coming down and blowing up RBs, but he can cover a little bit as well. because he does not speak with the media all that much I think there was a perception out there that he was not that outgoing, but he is a pretty well spoken individual and is thoughtful with his responses to questions directed at him.

Rankings Analysis: Like where he is rated currently. He is a Top 75 player in the country and that 55-75 range fits him pretty well. He can be a difference maker in college.
