A four-star prospect in the class of 2017 from Powell (Ohio) Olentangy Liberty, the 6-2, 200-pound White is the son of former OSU defensive back William White. White is one of the top prospects in Ohio in his class, as he is rated the No. 131 overall player in the class as well as the No. 7 outside linebacker.
However, he told Scout.com's Bill Greene that he might play a different spot at OSU.
"When we talked on Saturday, Coach Meyer asked me what position I wanted to play and I said wide receiver," he said after he was offered. "He said I could be another Mike Thomas in their system. He likes big receivers, and likes my physicality."
"I'm truly blessed to have this offer, and this is a great day for me," White added. "Coach Meyer told me to make sure I check in with him every week, and I plan on doing that. They're definitely No. 1 on my list."
OSU now has 11 commitments in the 2017 class, and all of the non-specialists are four- or five-star recruits.
