Jamal White, a safety out of South Garland, is a talented defender whose recruiting is beginning to pick up. Scout.com caught up with him to talk with him about the recruitment process.

The 5'11, 185 pounder with 4.4 speed is a three year letterman for the Colonels, and he'll be a two year starter when the 2008 season kicks off.

White, who sports a 30 inch vertical leap and a 265 pound bench press max, notched 83 tackles and 2 INT's as a junior for SGHS earning honorable mention all 10-5A honors in helping South Garland post a 10-2 record last year.

Along with his prowess on the football field, Jamal is also a member of the South Garland track team where he specializes in the 400 and 4x400 relay.

The speedy athlete understands his strong points, explaining, "I think my biggest strength is that I am a sure tackler and I have pretty good hands for a defensive back."

As things stand right now Jamal doesn't have any favorites, but he does boast an offer from Kansas.

His top five also includes Texas, Texas Tech, TCU and SMU.

Jamal's plans for the summer include camping at SMU and Texas Tech in addition to playing in seven on seven, where he'll try to lead the Colonels back to the State Tournament at Texas A&M in July.

White says academics will play a big role in where he lands, and he plans on majoring in Law Enforcement. However, a final decision on where he'll land likely won't come until after the 2008 season.

"I want to take my time and really make the best choice for my future. I want to help the team first win district and then make a long playoff run."
