White Loves Official Visit Experience

Auburn QB commitment Sean White discusses his official visit to the Plains, Rhett Lashlee and more.

A longtime commitment to the Auburn Tigers, talented quarterback Sean White has had a magical run as a senior at the University School. Winning the MVP of the Elite 11 quarterback competition over the summer, White led his team to the playoffs before coming up just short against powerhouse Booker T. Washington. Finishing it off by earning MVP honors at the Under Armour All-American Game, White says the only thing that could have made his year better would have been to see the Tigers win the national title.

Even though they came up just short he notes that watching Auburn fight all season long showed him plenty about his future team.

"I just think it's a team that knows how to win," White says. "They just fight hard through the fourth quarter. They got better as the season went on. It's just going to continue into next year."

Taking his one and only official visit to see Auburn over the weekend, White says that his already strong feelings for the Tigers only increased as he got the chance to spend time with future coaches Gus Malzahn, Rhett Lashlee, Dameyune Craig and more.

"He's a great coach," White says of Lashlee. "I can't wait to play for him. The whole weekend was great. I loved every minute of it and I didn't want to leave. It's a great place and I can't wait to get there."

One of a dozen players on campus over the weekend that had already committed to the Tigers, White says the relationship was a strong one with the group and having the opportunity to hang out for a full two days only made it better. That was especially the case with some of the players that weren't as familiar with each other.

"It was good," White says. "We got even closer than we already were. We're developing a good bond that when we come here and play together we're going to be playing as a family. It has already started and that's great.

"Last night I was hanging out with Kalvaraz Bessent," he adds. "I haven't really talked to him much before so I developed a good relationship with him and Stephen Roberts and Jakell Mitchell. Those are some of the guys I didn't know as much before but now I have gotten closer with them."

Coming in at a quarterback position featuring Nick Marshall and Jeremy Johnson, White says his goal is just to compete and try to learn as much as he can from both of the guys so when his time comes he'll be ready to take over Malzahn's offense.

"I'm just going to come in and work my hardest every day," White says. "I'm going to try to help the team the best I can and in the fastest way possible.

"I'm just going to learn from them," he adds. "They have been here and have gone through it. I'm going to learn from them and take their advice, but also work hard and get better and compete with them in practice every day."

White says he doesn't have any other visits scheduled and he's solidly committed to the Tigers.
