Kodi Whitfield just picked up an offer from Stanford and since his father, Bob, played for the Cardinal one might think they're the frontrunner but the Los Angeles Loyola wide receiver said he still doesn't want to name any leaders.
"They were slow to offer but I guess that's how their recruiting is structured," Whitfield said. "I was very glad to see the offer since my dad went there and just him trying to get me to have more interest in Stanford.
"They're not really jumping out as a favorite though because I'm trying to consider all the schools that have offered. They're definitely on the list. It's a new and interesting offer. I talked to the coaches and I'm trying to get up there for a visit."
Stanford, Arizona State, Boise State, Boston College, Colorado, Duke, Northwestern, UCLA, Washington and Cal Poly have now offered Whitfield, who finished with 31 receptions for 440 yards and five touchdowns in his junior season.
Rivals.com rates Whitfield, a 6-foot-1, 178-pound prospect, as an unranked four-star recruit.
The Loyola standout is considering another trip to Palo Alto, a place he's been multiple times with his father and for many different occasions. This time he'd like to talk more with first-year coach David Shaw.
"I'm a regular up there," Whitfield said. "A couple freshmen know my name, all the sophomores. My sophomore year I went to their junior day and I took a trip up there my freshman year with my dad and I went to the spring game this past spring.
"They had the coaching change and now coach Shaw is there. The past couple years I didn't get to really speak with him."
More offers could be on the way with Cal assistant head coach and run game coordinator Ron Gould showing the most interest.
Gould is trying to get Whitfield up for another visit since he's also been to Berkeley multiple times. Whitfield said he's hoping to visit Boston College at some point before making his decision.
