White Says UCLA Offered

The talented wing from Redondo Beach, Wendell White, says UCLA has offered, but another school leads...

Wendell White, 6-5 SR SF, Redondo Beach (Calif.) Redondo Union, has been a difficult person to locate this summer. He didn't participate in a shoe camp, and not one west coast camp or tournament. But we finally found him this weekend at UCLA's fall football scrimmage and got the recruiting scoop.

One non-west coast school has been recruiting White heavily for a while, he said, and has become his leader. "Tennessee is my favorite," White said. "They haven't offered yet, but I like their team and their coaches."

White also listed USC, UCLA, Florida State, Pepperdine and Notre Dame. He said that both his local Los Angeles schools, UCLA and USC, have offered scholarships. "Yeah, USC offered a long time ago. The stacks of mail I have from them is huge. But I just got an offer in the mail from UCLA two weeks ago."

White doesn't have in-home visits or official visits set, but said he's in the process of working them out. He said he'd like to trip to Tennessee, Florida State, UCLA and Notre Dame. When asked if any of the schools had offered trips, White said that a few had. "And UCLA, I'm going to call them and see what's up."

White said he has a 2.7 GPA and will take the SAT in September. "And I've been studying," he said.
