Ohio's Aaron White Officially Visiting Iowa

Still seeking its first commitment in 2011, Iowa will welcome Ohio forward Aaron White in for an official visit this weekend. Hawkeye Insider caught up with the prospect to see what he's looking to see on the trip, the chances he might pull the trigger on a commitment and more.

Aaron White was traveling from his Ohio home to Iowa City on Thursday afternoon for his official visit with the Hawkeyes. The 2011 forward took time out during his trip to check in with Hawkeye Insider from the airport.

"I basically want to see what they have to offer," the 6-foot-8, 215-pounder said. "You really have to see whatever you can because you might be spending four years there."

White said the relationship between the players and the coaches is the most important thing for him.

"I want to see the facilities and the campus, but I'm looking forward to the trip to Coach (Fran) McCaffery's house," he said. "I'll be there with the coaches and the players. I think I'll get a good idea how they all get along."

White has a point of reference. He's already visited Penn State, West Virginia, Duquesne and Akron.

White recently trimmed his list of prospective schools to a Top 6 - Iowa, Boston College, Duquesne, Temple, Northwestern and George Mason. They all have offered the Strongsville High product a scholarship.

Iowa still is waiting for its first verbal commitment in the ‘11 class. Might White be that guy this weekend?

"I don't know if I'm ready to commit just yet," said White, who will be in Iowa City until Sunday. "I'm really interested in Iowa. I'm heavily considering them. I just don't know if I'm ready to commit."

Scout.com ranks White as a two-star recruit on its five-star scale. Here's a link to a story we did on White last month. It provides background.

Hawkeye Insider will attempt to contact White after his visit to share his thoughts.
