2016 Georgia QB enjoys UT

Several of the countries top 2016 and 2017 quarterbacks will be in town June 9-11 for Texas' Elite Quarterbacks Camp, but there was one already on campus Sunday.

Class of 2016 pro-style QB Josh White traveled all the way from Marietta, Georgia to participate in the Longhorns' first summer camp and left feeling confident about where he stands with UT.

"It went really well. I threw the ball well. I showed the coaches what I wanted to show them with my size, my arm strength and my accuracy," said White, who stands 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds. "I really wanted to put the ball in their court as far as recruiting, and do as much as I could to further along my recruitment with UT."

White has let his interest in Texas be known before when he traveled to Austin for a Longhorns junior day earlier this year. But he wanted to show the coaching staff first-hand what he could do, and felt like he achieved his goal.

"They just really wanted to see me throw because they really like me as a leader," he said. "I threw the ball with consistency and pretty good arm strength. I thought it was a pretty good day. I got real good feedback. Coach [Charlie] Strong and Coach [Shawn] Watson had good things to say.

"They had to rush to go eat but they said they would stay in touch this week. I just want to put the ball in their court with anything that could come in the future and I think I did that today. My recruitment with Texas should be positive going forward."

White left the camp midway through to head to Baylor for its camp. He'll throw at TCU on Monday and then go to Mississippi State on Wednesday.

The Bulldogs are his only offer now, but that could be changing soon. He'll talk to UT in the next few days.

"I really can't say right now [if I'll get an offer]," he said. "It could go either way. They asked certain things out of me and I showed it to them. Anything else they want to see I will show them again."

Expect the Longhorns to be in the mix for White until the end.

"I really like the Longhorns," he said. "I like the tradition and have always had a really good team. I have a lot of family in the Houston area. It's always good to come out and see my family. I really like the weather in Texas.

"The coaching staff, I always say they are my uncles. Whenever I walk in the whole building knows me. Trainers know my name. I really feel special here. Austin is a really special place to me right now. I really like it here."
