One of Louisiana’s top 2016 prospects is hoping to be one of the numerous prospects on hand for Arkansas’ Red-White scrimmage on Saturday.
Springhill North Webster four-star tailback-linebacker Devin White (6-2, 240), a mid-term graduate who visited Fayetteville back in March, is one of the Razorbacks’ top recruiting targets.
“I am planning on being up there,” White said. “I have to get a few things worked out, but that’s what I want to happen. I’m looking forward to checking them out again.”
While some teams see White – who is a cousin of Razorback wide receiver Jared Cornelius - as a middle linebacker, Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema is recruited him as a big tailback.
“I think I could be a really good fit there at Arkansas and Coach Bielema has had a lot of big backs that have been successful and made it to the NFL,” White said. “That’s really something that has me interested and also the fact that two backs (Jonathan Williams and Alex Collins) will be gone.”
Some think in-state LSU has the lead over some 20-plus schools that have put down offers.
“I don’t have a top school right now, but I can tell you that I really like the way that Arkansas is recruiting me,” White said. “Arkansas is a school that I think has great coaches and is really coming up.”
White has made unofficial visits to LSU, Alabama, Arkansas, Ole Miss and Texas A&M.
“I still need to go see UCLA and TCU,” White said. “I’m just trying to get around and see all these schools and see what is best for me.”
