Lilburn (Ga.) Parkview defensive back Julian Whitehead is a prospect that plans to put himself on the map this spring during the evaluation period.
Whitehead is 5-foot-10, 185-pounds, and claims to run the forty in 4.5 seconds. He is hearing from a few schools early in the process, but hopes to open a lot of eyes in the near future.
"I know coaches will be out during spring practice, so I looking forward to that," said Whitehead.
Whitehead is currently hearing from a few schools, but he hopes that changes soon.
"I have visited Auburn and Georgia already during the spring," he said. "I went over to Auburn for their spring game a couple weeks ago and I have been to Georgia a couple of times. I went there for Junior Day in February and then for one of their practices before they went on spring break. I am hearing from them and I get letters from Duke too."
He plans to get back to Georgia for the G-Day game and may make it up to Chapel Hill for an unofficial visit as well.
"I am going back to Georgia on the eighth for the spring game and I may visit North Carolina with my teammate Marshall Williams too."
At this time, Whitehead is open to anyone that shows interest in him.
"I like Auburn and Georgia, but those are the only places I have seen so far. I am interested in anybody right now. I am wide open," said Whitehead.
Whitehead had 34 tackles, 2 interceptions, and seven pass break ups as a junior.
"It was my first year playing defense, so I was really learning a lot fast," he said. "I think I will be better this year with more experience. I need to get more reps this spring."
He feels he excels in a few different areas at corner.
"I read routes real well," said Whitehead. "I am also very aggressive and make plays on the ball."
Whitehead plans to show what he has to offer this spring and summer.
"I am going to get to as many camps as I can. I will start at the NIKE camp and then get to a lot more over the summer," he said.
Currently, Whitehead holds a 3.1 GPA and will take the SAT for the first time on April 1.
