White Has "Awesome" Visit To See Auburn

The Elite 11 MVP discusses his visit to Auburn for the Ole Miss game, his commitment and more.

Fort Lauderdale, Fla.--For Auburn quarterback commitment Sean White, his first visit to Jordan-Hare Stadium for a game was one to remember. In town for the Tigers' win over the #24 Ole Miss Rebels, White says that he can't imagine having a better time.

"It was awesome," White tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "It was just a great SEC win against Ole Miss. It came down to the fourth quarter. It was just a great environment.

"It was everything I expected and more," he adds. "It was just a lot of fun the whole day. Tiger Walk was crazy with all the people lined up. Just the passion the fans have is even more than I thought it was."

Getting the chance to mingle with fellow quarterback commitment Tyler Queen (2015 class) as well as future teammates such as Racean Thomas, Kamryn Pettway, Chris Laye, Jakell Mitchell, DeShaun Davis and Justin Thornton, White notes it's great to already be building relationships with guys he'll be spending a lot of time with the next four or five years.

"That was big," White says. "I know some of the guys couldn't make it because of the weather, but the guys that were there like DeShaun Davis and Roc (Racean Thomas) and Tyler Queen were great. Some of the offensive linemen they are trying to recruit, I talked to them. It was great meeting people and feeling more a part of the family because now I know a lot of the guys."

Once the game started it was time to watch the Auburn Tigers in action. A team coming off a 3-9 season with very few expectations, Auburn has put together a solid 4-1 start behind an improving offense and defense. White said he can see both coming together the more they play.

"They put up a lot of points," White says. "I feel like they even left a few out there and could have had more. They still put up 30 points against a good defense. It's definitely a fun offense.

"I think there has been a lot of improvement," White adds. "Especially on the defensive side of the ball. They (Ole Miss) had no time to throw the ball because of the pass rush. Offensively they ran the ball for like 300 yards. That was huge too."

Choosing Auburn over Cincinnati, West Virginia, South Florida and several more schools, White says he's already put recruiting behind him and is focused on finishing out his senior season strong before becoming a Tiger.

"I just can't wait to get there," White says. "That's pretty much it. I'm 100 percent committed to Auburn and that's it."

White has been nearly flawless this season in helping University School to a perfect 7-0 start. The day before his visit to Auburn he completed 13-15 passes for 172 yards and two touchdowns in a 63-0 win over North Broward. That brings his season totals to 75-115 for 1,330 yards and 20 touchdowns with just three interceptions. All that while playing mostly the first half of games for a team that has outscored its last three opponents 170-0.

"It's going good," White says. "As an offense we're rolling. We're getting to the meat of our schedule now. We play some of the top teams in the country like Manatee and Miami Central and Booker T. Washington. I'm just excited to play those teams."
