Just over one month ago, Itawamba (Miss.) Community College defensive back Darius White visited and then committed to Kansas State. On Sunday, he flipped his commitment to California.
"I committed," he told BearTerritory, right before his plane took off from Oakland Airport. "Really, I felt like everybody treated me like family, and I could see myself there. I liked how the coaches were really down and cool. Everybody was just really friendly."
The 6-foot, 175-pound three-star DB can play either corner or safety, but will likely come in right away to help shore up the cornerback spot. White will not be in Berkeley for spring ball.
Last season, White ranked fourth in all of the NJCAA with six interceptions. He also made 53 total tackles, including 44 solo stops and tallied 10 pass breakups, including a season-high three during an 11-tackle effort in a 36-33 win over East Mississippi Community College. White notched at least one interception in each of the last four games of his season.
White will come in for the summer and fall, but will not be able to enroll for the spring.
