Class of 2008 Profile: Dyron White

Dyron White is one of the top offensive tackles in the state for 2008 in a class that appears to be fairly deep with offensive linemen.

The 6-6, 273-pound junior reportedly did not allow a single sack while protecting the edge as a junior and earned all-state honorable mention.


To not allow a single sack is pretty impressive and according to Slidell head coach Wayne Grubb, he has the tools to make a big impact at the next level.


"Dyron is a big kid that has the potential college coaches look for in linemen," said Grubb. "He has a good looking frame that can carry a lot more weight and he moves really well. His lateral movement and wingspan make him a good fit for the position."


So far, White has received letters from Florida, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Michigan, Miami, U-Conn, and Vanderbilt to name a few.


"I'm getting stuff here from all kind of schools wanting to know more about him," Grubb explained. "You can never have enough big guys up front and Dyron is going to be a busy kid with all of the attention he will get."


White said he has also received letters from LSU tight ends coach/recruiting coordinator Josh Henson and he took advantage of an invitation that he got this past season to watch the Tigers play.


"Coach Henson sent me an invitation to the Alabama game," said White. "It was wild and the stadium was packed. I had a lot of fun just seeing all the players. I got a chance to walk on the field and that was pretty awesome."


White said he also got an invitation from Henson to attend Junior day.


"I want to go and I should be able to make it," said White. "I plan to go to some camps this summer, but I don't know what camps I'm going to make it to."


Growing up, White said he has been a fan of LSU.


"I've been to a couple of games," said White. "And you could say I am a fan. I've been on campus before and it was pretty cool. It was nice to see the school and campus. The people there were pretty nice."
