White's Rehab Ahead of Schedule

Joining several of his fellow North Carolina verbal commits, Randy White will take his UNC official visit this coming weekend.

White, a 6-foot-5, 230-pound tight end from Bristol (Va.) Virginia High, verbally committed to UNC in June after earning a scholarship at the Tar Heels' three-day camp.

"I usually talk to Coach [Steve] Hagen once a week," White said. "He's pretty much the only coach I ever talk to; he's my position coach. We just usually talk about what football games are on and who's going to win the Super Bowl."

Outside of being told to practice his deep snapping, there hasn't been much discussion regarding UNC's plans for White once he arrives on campus.

White is still several months away from getting onto the practice field as he continues to rehab his shoulder, which he had surgery on in October. White suffered a labral tear the third game into his senior season.

"Everything is going good," White said. "I start lifting heavy weights again in probably three to four weeks. I've started light weights to get muscle back in the shoulder and back into the chest and arm."

White says he's a month ahead of schedule.

The rehab has obviously prevented White from participating in any winter sports, but he said he's considering running track in the spring to get back in shape.
