The First 48 With Landon Whittemore

Within 48 hours, Class of 2021 Tight End Landon Whittemore, picked up his first six Division I offers. UAB, Austin Peay, Jacksonville State, EKU, UT Martin , and TN TECH all offered the 6’4, 220lbs Macon County High School (Lafayette, TN)  standout this week. This comes as no surprise after we watched his tape back in December after his coach sent his application in for the 2020 Appalachia Prep Combine. Instantly, his size and skill-set was noticed, which prompted us to term him as a future FBS prospect who would be soon landing offers. These offers are impressive when you consider Landon plays in a Wing-T offense that doesn’t throw the ball much. “They use me mostly as a blocking TE. The few times we do throw the ball we throw it to me I guess”, Whittemore explained. Whittemore currently holds a 4.0 GPA with a 31 ACT while competing in Tennessee’s Class 4A - Region 3 Division. Landon began talking about receiving the first offer that got the ball rolling with UAB. “Coach Nicks and Coach Craddock played together at UAB they were quarterback and center. They still stay in touch and remained friends. Coach sent him my tape and he offered me”.
