Greenwood senior Jeff Witthuhn is still weighing his options for where to play college football, the quarterback said Saturday.

Witthuhn told me after the Gators’ loss to Eastern on the hardwood that he’s considering several opportunities at different levels.

The 6-foot-3, 230-pound QB has scholarship offers from Eastern Kentucky and Murray State along with other FCS schools, he said, but is also considering the possibility of walking on at the University of Kentucky or going the junior college route.

A move from quarterback would also be possible for Witthuhn at the next level. He told BGDN writer Chad Bishop before the 2011 season that he’d be fine with a move to any position that got him on the field.

“Some colleges will say they will try and recruit me as a quarterback, others will say they’ll give me a chance to play quarterback – I’ll go and play anything,” Witthuhn told the Daily News in August. “I’ve had coaches tell me that I might play quarterback, tight end, linebacker, even defensive end. I’m open to playing pretty much anything going in. I just want to get on the field.

“I feel like (quarterback is) where my heart is. But it’s just wherever the coach needs me.”

Witthuhn completed 133 of 266 passes in 2011 for 1,527 yards and 10 touchdowns, also rushing for 576 yards and 14 scores. He also recorded 48 tackles and four interceptions at linebacker for the Gators, who finished 6-6 and advanced to the second round of the Class 5A playoffs.
