Who's Foswhitt Whittaker? - 2007 Longhorns RB Commit Highlights Video, That's Who!

When Pearland, TX High School running back Foswhitt "Fozzy" Whittaker gave his verbal commitment to play football with the Texas Longhorns, few had even heard his name. But his coach Tony Heath, knows all about him and has plenty to say about his star player:
Fozzy gets better with every game. Foswhitt may be the best we've had at Pearland. He's heading in that direction. He is the fastest we've had. Foswhitt is just a great kid. We relied on him on the field and off the field, just his leadership and character...We relied on him a bunch.

In a year with so many great running back prospects in Texas, many Longhorn fans (maybe even me) questioned this scholarship offer. But this video should answer all those questions. He's 5'9", 178 pounds and runs a 4.53 40-yard dash.
He has great speed, a good burst and tremendous balance--and his name is 'Fozzy'. How can you not love that?
