LAS VEGAS - For a second on Sunday night it looked as if Memphis Craigmont prep basketball star Terrico White was just going to pull up for another 3-pointer.
But a head fake here, a crossover dribble there and suddenly White (6-5, 195) was flying down the lane to slam one home over two defenders.
You can do that when you possess a 42-inch vertical jump as does White, who is playing for the M33M Ballers AAU squad this week at the Adidas Super 64.
"I think my athletic ability allows me to do a lot of different things," White said. "The fact I can shoot the ball so well keeps people off balance and I like to take it to the rack."
White averaged 22.2 points this past season for Craigmont, including pouring in 50 points in a game against Millington in Tennessee prep action.
Arkansas joins Ole Miss, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Valpo among teams that have offered White, who is also getting interest from Memphis and Georgia Tech.
"I really, really like Arkansas a lot," White said. "That could be the place that I go, probably will be. I really like their coaching staff and I like playing hard all the time and that's what they are going to do."
While he has not yet visited Arkansas, he is planning to do so soon.
"I think I am going to come up in August," White said. "I would like to make my decision before the summer ends."
He's getting a push in that direction from fellow M33M Baller Terence Joyner, a point guard who committed to the Razorbacks earlier this summer.
"He's really good," Joyner said of White. "He's 6-5, he's strong, he's very athletic, he can shoot the ball and I love to play with him out there on the wing. I hope we are going to be able to get him and he would be a big-time recruit to come down with me to Arkansas."
The M33M Ballers, a team sponsored by Memphis Grizzly Mike Miller, lost their opener on Sunday, but will be back in action today with of games.
They are playing in the Adidas Super Bracket this week without Elliot Williams, one of their stars who did not make the trip due to personal reasons.
"Tonight we didn't play very good to start off with and we lost," White said. "We'll come back strong tomorrow."
