Whittington is the fourth prospect in the 2011 recruiting class to verbally commit to Georgetown this year. Whittington is a two star recruit who averaged 23.5 points and 11.6 rebounds a game his senior year. He also lead his high school with a three-point percentage of 40.2.
Oakland Mills had a perfect regular season, and were 25-0 when they lost in the quarterfinals of the Maryland Division 2A South regional final.
Georgetown’s location was a key factor in Whittington’s recruitment. He was also receiving attention from Texas, Maryland, DePaul, and Clemson.
“I didn’t want to go to far away,” he said. “I’m close to home and my family and friends can come see me play.”
Whittington joins 4-star recruits Tyler Adams and Mikael Hopkins, and 3-star recruit Jabril Trawick.
