Whitehead Stands Firm After Camp Travels
Jermaine Whitehead profile "I started off by going to Memphis," said Whitehead. "I went to Ole Miss for the regular camp and then their 7-on-7 camp. I went to Mississippi State and then Alabama for their 7-on-7 camp. "We did good in the 7-on-7s, but I don't remember our record. I played some QB, but I ended up pulling my hamstring, so I couldn't do all I wanted to. I am not 100%, but I am getting it back. I am mainly just lifting right now. I am not running with the team right now." While many prospects are content to keep a lower profile after they make their commitments, Whitehead reports that he is not shying away from competition. "I really just to go the camps and get better," said Jermaine. "I go to get to play against some of the best players to get better. I want my name to ring a bell when people I hear it." The delta standout reports that he has seen a lot of nice things during his travels, but nothing that has caused him to back off of his commitment. "I am still solid in my decision and I am most definitely going to Mississippi State," said Whitehead. "When I went to Mississippi State I was little rusty, so Coach Smith told me to take it easy. I still ran 4.47 with my hamstring. I didn't run it by once because I didn't want to hurt it. "Coach Smith told me to rest up and get ready for the Big Dawg camp." The most recent trip to Starkville gave Jermaine the chance to catch up with some of the players he plans to play with during his college career. "I talk to C.J. (Johnson), Zach (Jackson), Devonte Scott and I started doing some talking to Rufus (Warren)," explained Whitehead. "I have known about him for a while. We played against each other in basketball, so I know what type of player he is. "We all are talking about how we are going to go down there and do some things. I am just down for the ride. Me and C.J. are all talking about getting as many good players to go to Mississippi State with us as we can. We're about winning and we want to get the best players to go with us to help us win."
