When he committed to LSU in February of 2012, Tre'Davious White knew Baton Rouge was the place for him. The 5-11 175 pound prospect also had a chance to experience the U.S. Army All-American Game, in which he participated with several other LSU commitments. White, from Green Oaks High School in Shreveport (La.), explained that the game was about more than just playing, and he made memories that will last a lifetime.
"It was a fun thing," said White. "It was an honor to be selected to the game. I made a lot of friends and got to meet a lot of new people."
"All of us LSU guys formed friendships with other people going to other schools that will last a lifetime. It was my first trip to San Antonio, so it was really nice."
White also had an opportunity to interact with several of his future college teammates, one of which was his roommate and long-time friend.
"John Diarse and I roomed together," said White. "We have known each other for a long time. We didn't really talk to Frank Herron a lot because he was on the other team. We all really got to hang out and bond, so that it will just be second nature when we get to Baton Rouge. I can't wait to be teammates with those guys."
The next thing on the agenda for White is an official visit to LSU, which he plans to take this weekend.
"I found out the other day that I am taking the visit this weekend," said White. "The coaches talked with my mom and I am free to go this weekend."
White already has it in his mind what he would like an in-depth look at once he steps on the LSU campus for his visit. How the team interacts and the surrounding areas of Baton Rouge will be focal points of the visit for White.
"First of all, I just want to get around the players and see what kind of guys they are," said White. "I want to experience Baton Rouge outside of LSU."
"Talking to the coaches and seeing what they have planned for me for next year will be big for me as well. I'm just ready to get there to experience everything."
While he has yet to visit LSU, White is ready to take on the role that the coaches will expect him to play next year. White explained that the coaches have informed him of the position they would like him to play, while leaving the door open for him to try another position. White also believes that he will have an impact on special teams in his first season.
"As far as I know they want me to play cornerback," said White. "I'm expecting that, but at first they were recruiting me as a receiver. I think it will be one of those things where they try me out at several places to see where I fit best."
"I trust the coaching staff and I know they will put me in the best position to succeed. They also told me to be expecting to return kicks next year. I'm just ready to go in there as a player and compete at the highest level."
