STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Kodi Whitfield made one of the most incredible touchdown catches in college football last season in a win over UCLA that kept Stanford on track for a second straight Pac-12 Conference championship.
If Whitfield has his way, he'll be breaking up catches like that next season.
Whitfield is trying to transition from wide receiver to free safety this spring. Stanford is loaded at receiver but short one spot in the secondary, with first-team Pac-12 safety Ed Reynolds headed to the NFL draft.
After losing the Rose Bowl to Michigan State on Jan. 1, Cardinal coach David Shaw began examining his roster for players who could fill Reynolds' role. He kept coming back to Whitfield, who played safety at Loyola High School in Los Angeles.
