West Palm Beach (Fla.) defensive back Julian Whigham committed to Syracuse back in early July. Since making that decision, the 6-foot, 175-pound defensive back hasn't given any thought to changing his mind.
"I am really solid right now," Whigham said. "I am really comfortable with the school. I am part of the Syracuse Orange."
Some motherly advice made the decision an easy one for Whigham.
"When I was looking at schools, my Mom was telling me to decide on a school where if I wasn't playing football I would be happy to be there," Whigham said. "When I went to their camp, I looked around the school a bit with my mom and I was really excited to be a part of that program. If I wasn't playing football, I would still want to be there. So it was an easy choice."
Doug Marrone and his staff have yet to come down to do an an in-home visit with Whigham, but he expects them in the coming weeks.
"I haven't had an in-home visit with them yet," Whigham said. "Coach (John) Anselmo came by the school earlier this year and just checked in. He just checked to see how I was doing. Other than that, no visits from them yet. Coach (Scott) Shafer is supposed to be coming down soon."
He plans to return to the Salt City next month for his official visit.
"My official will be in December," Whigham said. "I don't know which weekend it will be yet. I just got my SAT done on November 5th and I couldn't schedule a trip until they were done. So I have just spoke with Coach Anselmo about getting me up there. We are going to try to do it during December but it will depend on my team's playoffs."
As for the possibility of taking other official visits, Whigham - who also holds offers from Northern Illinois and Western Michigan - says that they are unlikely at this time.
"Probably not," Whigham said. "If something new came through that I really had to look at I may consider it. But I am probably not going to visit anybody else."
When he arrives at Syracuse during the summer, Whigham will be making a slight move in the defensive secondary away from his current position of safety.
"I am actually going to be moving down to cornerback," Whigham said. "I will probably end up being a corner because when I went to the camp they weren't sure if I would be big enough to stay at safety. Right now I am 6-foot, 175 (pounds) and the coach felt they could get me up to 190 or 195 pounds."
Whigham and Dwyer will participate in the third round of the state playoffs this coming Friday.
