During halftime of the basketball game, White met with Coach Gary Pinkel and gave the veteran coach some good news.
"Yes I'm going to be a Tiger," White told InsideMizzou.com. "I like everything that I have seen so far, I feel at home here."
White, a 6-foot-0, 170-pound athlete who runs a 4.5 forty, played safety for his 7-3 Keller High School team, is being recruited as a corner for the Tigers.
"I'm really excited about my decision," White said. "My hard work has finally paid off, I'm looking to do great things here in Columbia."
