Red Hot Prospect Sean White Visits Auburn

Elite 11 MVP Sean White has seen his recruiting take off since dominating The Opening. Thursday he visited Auburn and talks about the Tigers, Gus Malzahn, and much more.

Nova, Fla.--Perhaps the hottest recruit in the country at the moment following his performance at The Opening and Elite 11, quarterback Sean White from University School was on the Auburn campus to check out the Tigers on Thursday.

Getting the chance to talk with Auburn's coaches and also learn more about the program, White says it was a very interesting visit.

"It was awesome," White says. "I just toured the facilities and everything and got to talk to Coach (Gus) Malzahn and Coach (Rhett) Lashlee. I got to meet some players also. I liked everything about it.

"It was my first time there," he adds. "What stood out to me was the family atmosphere. Everybody is just close-knit and loves Auburn. We were walking through the dorms and guys were yelling War Eagle. It's a cool environment and a really fun place."

A talented passer who has the ability to maneuver in the pocket, White notes that Auburn's offense is an intriguing one for him and he enjoyed learning more about it on his visit.

"I was just really impressed with them," White says. "Obviously, I have heard about the offense and it's a great offense, but breaking it down with Coach Malzahn and Coach Lashlee and why it works I thought it was brilliant. Everything they do there is a reason behind it. They make it simple and it works. I loved it."

While he didn't get an offer from Auburn following his visit, White says he believes one could be coming in the days ahead based on what he heard from the coaching staff.

"They both said they were really, really impressed with me," White says. "They are going to talk about it over the next few days and they said it's very likely or possible that I could get an offer. They just hoped I liked it and I loved it. It was a great visit.

"It would mean a lot," he adds about an Auburn offer. "It's playing in the SEC. I think they said there were 84,000 at the spring game so playing in front of a fan base that just loves their team would be awesome."

Getting early offers from Cincinnati, South Florida, Wake Forest and West Virginia, White has seen his stock blow up in recent weeks. Adding offers from programs all over the country after his summer camp performances, White notes that it has been unreal how things have changed in his recruiting.

"I had a good week out there at the Elite 11 and The Opening," he says. "That only helped things. It makes coaches look and then they look at my film and see I'm good on the field too. It just makes people take notice a little more and I think they like what they saw."

As a junior White had a monster season throwing the football, completing 183-264 passes for 3,431 yards and 40 touchdowns with just six interceptions. As a sophomore the numbers were just as impressive, completing 121-196 for 2,208 yards and 26 touchdowns just only three interceptions.

Planning to visit Cincinnati, Notre Dame, North Carolina and South Carolina before his season starts, White says he doesn't have a timetable for a decision, but wants to get it done before getting back on the field this fall.
