Ohio Lineman Names Illinois

Chardon offensive guard David White is fully recovered from an injury that kept him out of action in 2003 and now he's out to prove he can play Big Ten football.

David White, a 6-foot-3, 300-pound offensive lineman from Chardon, Ohio will be a three-year varsity starter on both sides of the football in 2004.

White is a solid prospect but he's behind the recruiting 8-ball because of an injury plagued junior season.

"I broke a bone in my foot and I couldn't do anything for six months." White said.

"We had to go to the Cleveland Clinic to see their doctors. The bone in my foot just wouldn't heal but now I'm 100%.

"I don't have any offers yet because of my injury but I'm going to make up for last year by going to a lot of camps this year.

"I'll be camping at Akron, Youngstown State, West Virginia, Ohio, Bowling Green and Pittsburgh. I'm also going to the Ohio State 3-day camp as well as the (Ohio State) senior invite camp.

"My favorites are Ohio State, Pittsburgh, Louisville, Michigan, Bowling Green, Illinois and Virginia."

White projects as an offensive guard but has played offensive tackle, tight end, defensive end and defensive tackle at Chardon.
