Scouts: Whitehead has high ceiling


N.C. State gained a promising defensive end prospect when they got a verbal from Kenderius Whitehead (Lithonia, Ga./King) Wednesday night.

The four-star defender is a long and lean kid who can move. He needs to keep developing that frame, but he has the potential to be a handful coming off the edge. He flashes good quickness off the ball and, while he needs to keep developing as a pass rusher, he is capable of getting up-field, taking a tight path, and challenging blockers with his speed.

There is room for improvement both physically and as a player, but he can run and is capable of causing problems. Whitehead is the second good get out of MLK HS in Georgia for the Wolfpack.
