Elite-11 Columbus: Sean White

Even though he might have been overlooked entering last Saturday's Elite-11 Regional in Columbus, Ohio, Sean White proved he belonged with the nation's best. The Fort Lauderdale University School product was very impressive.

Sean White did not enter last Saturday's Elite-11 Regional in Columbus, Ohio as one of the top prospects in attendance, but the Fort Lauderdale University School signal-caller performed quite well.

White, 6-foot-3, 180-pounds, did not possess a rocket for an arm, but he delivered throws accurately and on time throughout the competition.

"This was actually my second Elite-11, and I've improved since the first one," White said. "After going through spring football at my school, I've had more reps and have gotten better at everything, to be honest."

"This was a great event out here today, and I had a lot of fun competing against so many great quarterbacks," he added. "My arm strength is fine, so I've really worked on my footwork all spring, and that showed out here. I think I did everything well they asked me to do, and I was pretty consistent."

College recruiters have certainly taken notice of White's talents, and he has put together an impressive offer list.

"I have 16 offers right now," White explained. "Some of the ones standing out would be Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, West Virginia and Houston. California is a school I'm visiting next weekend. They haven't offered me yet, but I think they might be. I'm also visiting Wisconsin after that, and I'm interested in them."

"I had a college coach tell me if you're a good quarterback you can play in any system, and I think that describes me," he continued. "I think I can adjust to any system, as long as it's not something totally run based."

White has a time-frame in mind for making a decision, and it might be occurring fairly soon.

"I want to make my decision before my senior season, because I know spots fill up and schools only take one quarterback for the most part," he explained. "I would say I have the best relationships with Coach (Brooks) Bollinger from Pitt, Coach (Andy) Ludwig of Wisconsin, Coach (Darin) Hinshaw of Cincinnati, and Coach (Tony) Franklin from Cal. They are all different, but great guys."
