"We were going at it," he said. "We had to. He is a good player. I learned a couple things from him. That was my first time ever seeing him." With White's aspirations, it won't be the last time he rises up to a challenge like the one Padgett presented.
With a current school list of in-state schools including hometown Alabama plus Auburn, he is also interested in Indiana, North Carolina, Florida and Mississippi State, White certainly will get challenged at the college level. The only question is where?
"Right now I haven't too much thought about it," he said. White noted that he wouldn't mind taking some visits in the near future, but doesn't have any set up and will wait and see what the coaches say to him after their seasons.
White will play with the Alabama Lasers at the Boo Williams Invitational. "I can't wait," he said.
