SCOTT WHITE, LB, 6'2, 225, 4.58, SAN DIEGO MISSION BAY, CALIFORNIA:
JH: Are you still playing high school ball?
SW: We are in the semi-finals right now. We played Serra last weekend and won 51-7. I had a good game, I guess. I had 14 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and a blocked punt in the game. My hamstring is back to 100 percent, but the coaches decided to only play me on defense.
JH: How is recruiting going?
SW: Washington is here at my house right now and Oklahoma comes tomorrow. I am looking forward to meeting Coach (Chuck) Long. I just got back from my trip to Colorado and I had a good time. I still think Washington and Oklahoma are my two schools, but Colorado was OK. I really like the people at Colorado, but I think that Nebraska and Oklahoma are going to be the teams to beat in that conference for sometime, and both of those schools are recruiting me. So, I have to consider them over Colorado. One thing that is holding me to Colorado is their linebacker coach Brian Cabral, who is a phenomenal guy. I really like him and think he is a great guy.
JH: Are you leaning to any particular school at this point?
SW: I am leaning to Washington a little bit, but Oklahoma is right there. Washington's lifestyle is a little more what I am used to, but Oklahoma is a little ahead football-wise. They both are equal academics-wise.
JH: It sounds like the most important thing to you is how comfortable you will be in the community?
SW: That's right, because I want to be comfortable where I am going to live the next four years. Oklahoma is the top football school that I am looking at, but it is a totally different way of life and that is something that I am wrestling with. I am not trying to say that it is not a good way of life, but it is different for me. Washington is a lot closer to the style of life that I am used too.
