Kielan Whitner One to Watch for 2015

Regional Recruiting Analyst
Posted Jan 30, 2014

The state of Georgia is loaded with talent across the board for the class of 2015. One player to keep an eye on from the Peach state is from Lawrenceville (GA) Mountain View high school and his name is Kielan Whitner.

Kielan Whitner is a defensive back/wide receiver prospect for Mountain View high school. Whitner was all region as a sophomore and first team all region as a junior. Whitner is a great student with a 3.8 GPA and checks in at 6-feet, 180-pounds with a 33-inch vertical and 4.5 40-yard dash.

Whitner plays both sides of the ball for Mountain View and shows great upside at both the defensive back and wide receiver position.

He is a long strider, very smooth in his routes and does a good job of getting in and out of his breaks. I really love the way he adjusts his body when the ball is in the air. Whitner does a great job of extending his arms and catching the ball at its highest point seemingly before defensive backs can make a play on the football.

As a defensive back prospect, Whitner has the ability to play corner or the safety position. He shows a very nice break on the ball and has great instincts. He does what college coaches look for in young corners, plays the ball when it's in the air and is not afraid to go up and get it. Whitner does a good job of wrapping up and is a sure tackler. He is a very technically sound corner with a lot of upside.

Whitner has interest from a number of schools including Georgia, Duke, Mississippi State, UCLA, Iowa, Missouri, East Carolina, Auburn and Arizona.
