Kermit Whitfield was a four-star wide receiver recruit with a player rating of 90.11. Whitfield checked in at 5’9 165 pounds and one of the fastest recruits in the nation.
It didn’t take long for that speed to manifest itself on the field of play as Whitfield took a 100 yard kickoff to the house against Auburn in the 2013 National Championship game.
Whitfield also became one of the most productive wide receivers during his time at FSU while also being one of the better kick returners in recent memory. He finished his FSU career with 102 receptions for 1,338 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Like Jesus Wilson, Whitfield became a huge contributor on offense as a undersized wide receiver and surpassed all expectations in that department.
Also, it’s likely that FSU doesn’t have its third National Title had Whitfield not returned that kick for a TD. That has to count for something right?
