Recruiting: Jamal White Plays Waiting Game

Safety prospect Jamal White of Garland (South Garland), Texas, has got some time on his hands and it would appear he is looking for a school. White and his Colonels teammates were eliminated in the Class 5A Division II playoffs on Friday in a 42-14 loss to Richardson Lake Highlands.

"Yes, I'm still looking," said White, who corrected us on his height and weight as he is 6-1, 185 pounds and he says his fastest 40 time is a sizzling 4.41. "Iowa State, Kansas and Montana State are the schools that had offered me. Kansas says they filled my spot and they aren't looking at me anymore. I still get a lot of letters including some every week from Oklahoma State."

White missed three games this season with injury but still averaging 14 tackles a game had 114 tackles and he had two interceptions for South Garland.

"I'm waiting to see who is going to be interested," said White of the recruiting process which he has seemed to be low key on so far.

He knows what he wants. "I'm looking for a good school where I can have a chance to play and have success and get my degree," he said. "I want to be a police officer, so I am looking into majoring in criminal justice. I grew up a fan of Texas Tech and SMU. I've heard from both schools but I don't know how interested they are or if they are interested in offering a scholarship."

Recruiting sounds like it is on the front burner now for White, who on the phone sounds like a really sharp individual.
