Kempner HS ATH Julius White (Sugar Land, TX) is currently committed to Rice, but a recent offer from Boise State has him considering a possible visit to The Blue.

Boise State is no stranger to Kempner HS as (current Broncos) George Iloka and Quaylon Ewing also hail from the same school. Needless to say, the thought of playing with two former HS teammates is intriguing to White. "It would be pretty cool since we've played with each other before," he said. "It would be pretty fun. I've talked to them about it," he added.

Jeff Choate is in his first year coaching the Nickels at Boise State and he's putting in some serious hours on the recruiting trail. He stopped by White's house for an in-home visit and extended an offer to the talented ATH. "I got the offer from Coach Choate. He was in town to visit one of their commits and wanted to drop by to talk to me," he stated. "He came by my house and talked to my parents. It was a pretty cool deal and he told me a lot about the university. He also told me a lot about what they have to go through as far as the program."

White has paid close attention to the Boise State program over the years. "I think Boise State is an explosive program," he said. "No one really knew about them six or seven years ago and they've been up-and-coming since that Bowl Game against Oklahoma. Their recruiting has really improved and they're always in the top ten."

Julius maintains that he is committed to Rice at this point. "I'm leaning toward Rice right now," White said. "Initially, I chose Rice for the academics and I think I'd get more playing time. I'd say I'm about 80% Rice right now."

White played RB as a junior and made the transition to QB as a senior. Kempner runs the triple-option and the coaching staff moved White to QB so they could always have the ball in the hands of their biggest playmaker on each down. "It gave me a different perspective and let me see the game from a whole new angle," he said. "We made it to the first round of the playoffs and got knocked out by Pearland."

What does White (5'11, 186, 4.47) bring to the field? "People describe me as a finesse runner on the offensive side and when I watch film I can't even tell you how I did it. It's just natural ability," he said. "It's God given talent. I'd say I'm an elusive runner," he added.

As a senior, White had 202 carries for 1320 yards and 21 TDs. He also had 3 TD passes.
