Rah Rah Talks Up Auburn While On Visit

Jawara (Rah Rah) White talks about his official visit and helping recruit for the Tigers.

Troy, Ala.--For committed players such as Jawara White, this past weekend's official visit to Auburn was more about having fun and learning more about future teammates with the decision of where to go to school already made.

A linebacker from Charles Henderson High, the 6-2, 220 White chose Auburn over offers from all over including Alabama, LSU and Florida State and hasn't waivered since making it public. Because of that his visit basically was a time of celebration as White said he basically just had fun and enjoyed himself on the trip.

"It was great," White says. "It was fun. It was like it always it. It's great to be up there with the coaches. They are like family. It's always great to be there."

Auburn freshman linebacker Jonathan Evans was his player host and White notes they spent a lot of time hanging out with fellow commitments such as Jake Holland and LaDarius Owens. Owens came up on an unofficial visit as did commitments Michael Dyer and Dakota Mosley.

With so many commitments on campus and two primary recruiting targets visiting in (Jeffrey Whitaker and Byran Jones) who are not committed, the two defensive tackles got quite a sales pitch over the weekend from the committed recruits. Knowing the importance of getting strength up front on defense, White says he kept it up all weekend and he feels good about where both players stand following their visit.

"I worked on the defensive tackles," White says. "I stayed on their case the whole time. I'm talking about every minute I was on their case. When I say every minute, I mean every minute."

White notes he'll now concentrate on working out and getting in better shape while playing baseball for the Trojans this spring as an outfielder.
