Cuero Football Star Signs With Texas

Whittington Makes Commitment Official

Jordan Whittington’s last day as a Cuero high school student, a pretty eventful one Wednesday.

The three-time Max Preps All-America football star, signing with the Texas Longhorns. Whittington, number 53 on the 24/7 national senior football players list, number nine wide receiver in the country, seventh ranked player in Texas, committed to sign with Texas last march. Jordan received his first college offer from Baylor in May of 2016, after his freshman season with the Gobblers. He also received offers from such big-time schools as Alabama, Florida, Georgia, the University Of Houston, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, TCU, A&M, Texas Tech and USC. Jordan is graduating early from Cuero, and then after playing in the All-American Bowl in Florida next month, he will enroll at UT. I talked with Jordan and Cuero head coach Travis Reeve.

Said Whittington, “It shows just how strong and together the Gobbler community is, as well as the Longhorn one. It’s a blessing. This is a great day for me. It’s been exciting. It’s not over, I gotta keep going.”

Said coach Reeve, “It’s a great honor for our program, to have somebody of Jordan’s caliber come from Cuero. It just shows the rest of our kids that it doesn’t matter how big of a town you come from, it’s what you do with what God’s given you. He’s worked really hard with the talent God’s given him and it’s got him to where he is today. “
