Tashon Whitehurst Commits To South Florida Over Syracuse And Rutgers

Tashon Whitehurst, a three-star outside linebacker by Rivals, has committed to South Florida reports Tampa Bay Times writer Greg Auman and confirmed by Scout.com's John Garrcia Jr on National Signing Day 2012. Whitehurst, who played is from Gainesville, FL, chose South Florida over Syracuse and Rutgers, the other two finalist for his services.

Syracuse was hoping to add Whitehurst (6-foor-2, 190-pounds) and pair him with three-star defensive back Wayne Morgan (Brooklyn, NY), who just sent his letter of intent to SU. Rutgers was hopeful to had Whitehurst to its already outstanding recruiting class, which has cracked Rivals' top 25.
