Len’Neth Whitehead is a superb athlete in the 2020 recruiting class. The Georgia recruit plays on both sides of the ball, but it sounds like he is destined to be a linebacker at the next level.
Whitehead is ranked No. 218 overall in the class of 2020. He’s the No. 8 inside linebacker in the country, and No. 21 recruit from Georgia.
This afternoon, he cut his list down to seven programs. It features the two Power Five programs from his home state, Georgia and Georgia Tech.
They’re joined by South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, and Wisconsin.

As of today, one program appears to stand out for Whitehead, per the early predictions from a few analysts over at 247Sports.
The crystal ball has four predictions so far. All have Whitehead heading to the Bulldogs. He’s also an up-and-coming movie reviewer.
