Tashon Whitehurst came on late last season and could be a full time starter this year.
Tashon Whitehurst – Sophomore – 6’3″ 198 lbs. – Gainesville, FL (Gainesville HS) – Linebacker
2012: Whitehurst appeared in 10 games last season, starting one game at weakside linebacker.  He totaled 15 tackles, 1 sack, 2 QBH, and forced one fumble.
2013 Bull Rush Projection: Whitehurst got more playing time at weak side linebacker after DeDe Lattimore moved to middle linebacker.  Whitehurst has a lot of speed and playmaking ability that make him ideal on the weakside, a position he should be the starter at this season.  Look for Whitehurst to work to secure the position this fall (there are others battling for it) and become a regular for the 2013 season.
