Whisnant II played two seasons with the team, but did not receive the most playing time in the world. In his freshman season, he played 7.7 minutes per game and in his sophomore year he averaged 17.2 minutes per game.
This past season, he put up 5.2 points per game, while shooting 40.6 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from behind the arc.
According to the NBCSports’ report linked above, Whisnant II could be joining East Carolina or Coastal Carolina. Although that is a big change from playing in the ACC, it is Whisnant’s choice, and that is all that matters.
Who knows how much playing time Whisnant II would have gotten in his junior year, but we will never have a single clue now.
He reached double digits in points a couple of times on the year, but he was never a huge scoring threat and his minutes likely played a huge role in that, among many other things.
Florida State is coming off of a very disappointing season. After winning the ACC tournament just a season ago, the Seminoles had an overall record of 18-16 and missed out on the NCAA tournament this past season.
Although Whisnant was not the most used player on the team, it probably never feels good for a player to leave your school. Hopefully Whisnant has a successful rest of his college career wherever he decides to play. As for Florida State, though, it will likely not stay bad for long, however, the ACC will arguably be the best conference in all of college basketball entering the season.
