The recruitment of DeSmet 2013 DE Donnie White has taken off this spring with 4 offer in the book already and more looking like they will be coming his way within the next few weeks and months.
"It was pretty exciting," said White of his Boston College offer. "I have been talking with the coaches for a little bit, and it lets me know what kind of player I am both on and off the field to pick up an offer from a school like them where academics are stressed."
White is expecting a few more offers to land at his door in the near future.
"Arizona State is coming to see me on May 21st. I have been talking with their coach and they say that an offer will likely come when then see me. Tulsa has said pretty much the same thing, they are just waiting to get my ACT score before offering according to the coach. Nebraska and Minnesota are recruiting me and have stepped up their interest. They want me to visit and possibly camp with them. Memphis is another school who has entered the picture."
Another program that was by Donnie White's high school recently is Missouri. I asked Donnie where things were regarding the Tigers?
"Coach Ford was by my school last week. He said Missouri is looking at me and wants me to camp with them to see how I move before an offer would come. They are evaluating me and so I will go to their camp they have here at my school on June 3rd. It would be nice to get an offer from Mizzou since it's my home state school, but I have other good offers on the table now and some more on the way from the looks of it."
Donnie told me that some schools are looking at him as a hybrid DE/OLB in their system while others are looking at his as a rush end.
He continues to work hard to improve himself physically, working out with WR Corey Winfield, who is also looking to earn more D1 offers, including from Missouri.
