"I have attended every Colorado summer camp since I was eight," says Jesse. "Except for the last two I couldn't make."
Jesse grew up in Boulder and has been around the Buff program all his life because his father Leon played for CU. Leon is better known as the professional wrestler, 'Vader'.
Leon still wrestles to this day with five matches in Japan every year. Jesse had an intersting childhood bouncing back and forth to Japan quite often with his Father.
"He is just so bright," said Leon. "He grew up around me traveling a lot and he still has always managed to get good grades and maintain a very good head on his shoulders. It may have more to do with his Mother than me," he says laughing.
Leon is not sure where his son will play ball, but he is very high on his abilities.
"The kid has a 24-inch neck, he has huge legs, and technically he is very sound. He is a pure Center prospect in my opinion."
Jesse's coach Dave Logan also has some praiseful words on Jesse.
"He is the strongest kid I have ever had," says Coach Logan. "He is pretty athletic for his size."
Leon and Logan played together at CU so they go way back.
Jesse and Leon are going to try to make some summer camps based around Leon's wrestling schedule. Some of the ones they are interested in are the Nike Camps at Oregon, Stanford, San Diego State, and Texas A&M.
White has an early top six.
When asked what he likes about Boulder Jesse replied, "Boulder is a great town and they have good academics there."
He will be in attendance with many of his Mullen teammates at CU's junior day February 28th.
White lists his strengths on the field as his quickness, strength, smartness, and technique.
He carries a 3.2 core GPA and recently took his Pre-Sat, but has not received his score back yet. He would like to major in Structural Engineering or Business.
