Darius White Talks Camps

Scout.com's #3 rated wide receiver in the country, Darius White, stands out from the crowd at 6-4 and almost 200 pounds. White recently camped at the University of Texas and took an unofficial visit to the University of Oklahoma. Burnt Orange Beat spoke with White about those two stops and if he has set a time line for his decision.

Recruiting in the state of Texas is an ever-evolving "sport" and the last trend involves early commitments. Of Burnt Orange Beat's top-25 players in Texas for the 2010 class, fourteen have already made pledges to college coaches almost nine months before they can actually sign letters of intent.

Many observers thought Fort Worth Dunbar wide out Darius White would be another of the early commitments, but things have slowed down quite a bit for White. White says that he does not have a timeline to make a decision and is not going to be rushed into a decision before he has explored his options and cleared his mind.

Since the end of school, White has made two stops at college campuses. On June 7, White made a highly anticipated stop in Austin when he worked out with committed Longhorn pass catchers Chris Jones, Darius Terrell, and John Harris. White caught passes from Longhorn pledges Case McCoy and Connor Wood.

White did not camp in Norman, but he did make an unofficial visit there the following Sunday with Dunbar teammate Rashod Favors.

"Both of the stops (Texas and Oklahoma) were good. I like both schools. Right now I'm really not planning on making any more stops. If I do stop any other place, I don't really know where right now," White explained.

White said that several coaches have made connections with the big wide receiver while on campus.

"Cleve Bryant stands out to me in Austin. Coach Bryant is a real good man. At Oklahoma, Coach Norvell and Gundy stand out to me," said the talented star.

White has 69 catches for more than 1,800 yards and 28 touchdowns the last two seasons for Dunbar, but also excels at basketball and track. Prior to this season, White also played baseball.

Although several schools early talked to White about playing basketball and football, White said that he is not looking to be a two-sport star in college.

In addition to Texas and Oklahoma, White holds offers from Florida, Notre Dame, Utah, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, and TCU, among others.
