Philadelphia (Pa.) St. Joseph junior quarterback Chris Whitney moved into the starting lineup the fourth game of his sophomore year and has been a fixture ever since. In fact Whitney has developed into one of the top quarterback prospects in the talent rich Keystone state.
Not surprisingly some of the country's top football programs are showing interest in Whitney.
"I'm interested in Notre Dame, Michigan, Florida, Penn State and Ohio State," Whitney said. "But I really haven't narrowed it down as of now."
Whitney has what will likely be the first of many scholarship offers on the table.
"Rutgers offered," he said. "I went to their junior day. I'm going to Syracuse (for a junior day) this weekend. And I've been invited to Virginia, Pitt and Iowa for junior days."
The 6-foot-3 and 215-pound Whitney completed 51% of his passes for 1430 yards during his junior season. Whitney connected for 16 touchdowns with just four interceptions. He also rushed for 554 yards and scored nine times.
Whitney was an all-league and all-city selection for his work on the offensive side of the ball. He also played safety and intercepted two passes during his junior season.
