Not known for handing out that many early offers, the LSU coaching staff must see something in the 6-0, 180-pound defensive back to their liking. For White, it's all a little overwhelming at this stage.
"You always think you're pretty good as a player, but to start getting letters and attention from all these colleges, it means a lot," White said. "I've been offered by LSU, Stanford, Texas A&M and Vanderbilt and a lot of other schools are sending me mail."
White competes in one of the nation's hotbeds for prep football, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. His sophomore season put him on the map, but his performance this past summer at camps has raised the bar a little.
He's rated as one of the state’s top players on the defensive side of the ball for 2010 by Scout.com. Possessing a 4.41 time in the 40, and an ability to be physical, White has played both safety and cornerback.
"I'm a pretty good cover guy, but I also like to play up toward the line of scrimmage and be physical," he said. "I like to hit people."
Although he enjoys the attention thrust on him so far this season, he's not ready to dive head first into the recruiting process just yet.
First on his mind is helping his team turn around a slow start on the gridiron. DeSoto fell to 1-3 last week with a loss to Duncanville and through four games, White has recorded 18 tackles and 3 PBUs.
"We're a young team, so we're all still coming together out there," he said. "As the season moves on, we're going to get better."
With the LSU offer in hand and the Tigers' 3-0 start, White says he is paying close attention.
"Oh definitely. They are the defending national champs and they're undefeated this year," White said. "I didn't watch them live against Auburn, but I had the game on Tivo and was able to watch it. I really like the way the defense plays. They were never out of it at Auburn. They just kept coming back. It's fun watching LSU play."
White is also an astute student of the game. He admits that he pays close attention to how players perform not only in college but in the NFL. His favorite player, and one after whom he patterns his own game, is San Diego Chargers corner Antonio Cromartie.
Having already taken an unofficial visit to College Station to see Texas A&M play against Miami, the Aggies are already hot on his trail in addition to Oklahoma and Texas expressing interest. He has no early favorite in mind, however, with LSU's offer in hand, White is going to be following the Tigers a little closer from this point on.
"They have my attention ... no doubt about it," he said.
