Draft Scout *Jordan Whitehead News
12/11/17 - S Jordan Whitehead, a junior, announced on social media Monday that he will enter the 2018 NFL draft. Whitehead (5-foot-11, 195 pounds) has been listed as the No. 1 free safety for the 2019 NFL draft, according to NFLDraftScout.com. Whitehead, who was suspended for the first three games this season because of a violation of team rules, made 60 tackles and broke up four passes in nine games this season. Those totals didn't live up to his previous seasons. He was a consensus Freshman All-American in 2015, when he led the Panthers with 109 tackles and earned third-team All-ACC honors. He was a second-team all-conference pick in 2016, when he started a game at safety and wide receiver.

10/23/17 - OCT 23 ACC CO-DEFENSIVE BACK OF THE WEEK: Jordan Whitehead, Pitt, Jr., SS, 5-11, 195, Aliquippa, Pa.,...Whitehead, owning significant run and pass responsibilities against Duke, was a highly productive defender in Pitt's 24-17 win. Whitehead compiled a team-high 10 tackles, added a pass breakup and had the game-clinching interception. He was an integral figure in helping limit the Blue Devils to just 76 yards on the ground (Duke had been averaging 190 rushing yards). With Pitt clinging to a seven-point lead in the game's waning moments, the Blue Devils mounted a final drive, reaching the Panthers' 22-yard line. But Whitehead ended the threat and the game with a diving interception at the Pitt 8-yardline line with 45 seconds remaining. - ACC Football
07/31/17 - Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi on Friday dismissed defensive end Rori Blair and suspended offensive tackle Alex Bookser, linebacker Quintin Wirginis and safety Jordan Whitehead for rules violations, less than a week before the team begins fall practice. Narduzzi said Blair, a senior, was kicked off the team for "conduct detrimental to the program." Blair collected 3½ sacks last season for the Panthers. Whitehead and Wirginis will sit out Pitt's first three games for a violation of team policy. Bookser will miss the Sept. 2 opener against Youngstown State after being arrested and charged with driving under the influence in May.
Wirginis picked up four sacks as a reserve while Whitehead collected 65 tackles on defense and added 98 yards rushing on offense while being named second-team All-ACC as a sophomore in 2016. Whitehead and Wirginis will miss the opener against Youngstown, a trip to rival Penn State on Sept. 9 and a visit by Oklahoma State on Sept. 16. They will be eligible to return for Pitt's ACC opener against Georgia Tech on Sept. 23. Narduzzi called the disciplinary actions "highly disappointing situations." - AP College Football
