The San Francisco 49ers may have just started their offseason, but safety Donte Whitner already has big plans. Whitner has been in the NFL since 2006, when he was drafted out of Ohio State by the Buffalo Bills, but did not complete college before turning pro. Now, according to the 26-year-old Cleveland native's official Twitter feed, he's planning on going back to school.
Whitner announced that he would be returning to school and attending San Jose State University on Wednesday, when he sent out a series of tweets while apparently wandering around the campus. First he dropped the initial news while apparently setting out for the day.
Then he appeared to immediately get lost.
He was soon consumed with thoughts of Greek organizations.
Before finally turning to truly important matters.
Speaking as someone who used to live right by SJSU in downtown San Jose, I can say with all confidence: La Victoria. Best burritos in Northern California.
Based on Twitter replies to his followers, Whitner has about six classes left to get his degree in Business and Consumer Affairs. No word yet on what those classes are, so we'll just have to assume that they include economics and contemporary American history.
Whitner should probably prepare for two things during his stay at SJSU: the first is that every fraternity on campus will be falling all over themselves to recruit Whitner. The second is that Donte should begin practicing The Triple Lindy. It is a big part of going back to school, as I understand it.
