It will be a long time before Michigan State fans forget about Anthony Rashad White putting his big paw up and blocking Georgia's field-goal attempt in triple overtime to seal a victory in the 2012 Outback Bowl.
While the former Fort Scott Community College transfer still gets a smile on his face for his game winning heroics, he also knows he'll be looked upon to anchor the Spartans defensive middle to allow the star-studded linebacker core to clean up and earn the glory.
With 26 games under his belt, White is set to have his biggest college season improving upon his 25 tackles from last season.
With the loss of Jerel Worthy to the NFL, White's role in the Spartans defensive will go a long way in determining the team's success in 2012.
While there is some depth behind him in Micajah Reynolds and Brandon Clemons, White being loss for any amount of time could play a negative role as the Spartans look to build upon the success seen the past two years.
Because of the importance of him staying healthy, Spartan Digest feels a spot as one of the ten most indispensable members of the 2012 Spartans football team is justified earning him the No. 5 spot.
