One of them is linebacker William White, who has been a varsity starter for the Technicians since his freshman year. Now ready to enter to his junior year, the 6'1, 215-lb White is starting to see a rise in his recruitment.
"So far, I've been hearing from Michigan State, Iowa, and last weekend, I went on a visit to Illinois. It was real cool. The coaching staff is real cool. We talked about linebackers. I met a linebacker that's supposed to be a first round draft pick and they were telling me they're recruiting me."
White says this summer, he plans to head back to to Champaign for camp and wants to camp at LSU as well. He won't ignore the in-state schools though, as he has made a handful of visits to Michigan State already.
"I've been to State a couple times. I went to their football games last year and a couple weeks ago, I went to their basketball game against Ohio State. They told me to come down this summer and attend their camp."
This weekend, White will trip to Ann Arbor with several fellow Cass sophomore linebackers who are highly regarded as well.
