Western Kentucky continues to build its roster with prospects from Georgia.

Tyson Helton picked up his fourth commitment from Georgia in the Class of 2020 with running back Noah Whittington verbally pledging to the Hilltoppers on Monday.

Whittington is a 5-foot-10, 190-pound recruit from Peach County High School in Fort Valley, Ga. He’s listed as a wide receiver but will commit as a running back to WKU. Whittington also has offers from Army and South Alabama.
