Whited said, “Very thankful for this opportunity and I am excited to go explore a new chapter in my life. I love the campus, and have been up there with Dad a few times since he played there, love the field, and the coaching staff, and everything that it has to offer. I want to thank my parents, all of my family for all of their support, all of my teammates and my coaches.”
His father Johnny stated, “Just really proud of him and all of his teammates. They have been working since they were five or six years old, putting in time and effort. When some kids were hanging out, they have been at the cages, the field, just working and trying to get to the next level. As a dad, just super proud of my son and his effort and just look for great things in the future.”
Coach Brent Korn added, 'Just another great athlete for us. He has just been our workhorse on the mound the last few years. He can pitch, and can also play in the field, just great all around player. We are expecting big things from him.'
