Lendale White has a top five of "Texas, USC, Mich, Pitt and last slot is up in the air". He does not have a leader at the time. For the season, he's rushed for "around 1500 yards and 17 TD's, and I don't know how many carries I have."
On his trip to USC this past weekend: "pretty good, I really enjoyed myself." On the highlights of the trip: "I really can't give you any highlights because I just had a good time overall, everything I did I enjoyed." Lendale was hosted by TE Alex Holmes and the two apparently got along very well: " he was a real cool guy." On Kennedy Pola, the USC RB coach: " He's a real fired up kinda guy. On the field, he demands the best from you, but off the field, he's the coolest guy ever." On Pete Carroll and Norm Chow: " Coach Carroll's pretty fired up, but he's a real laid back guy. Not too fancy or whatever, he's just about the players and making sure that they feel comfortable. Coach Chow, same way, he's a good guy. Just laid back but demands the best from his players."
On why he likes USC: " Well, the fact that they are losing three senior RB's this year and the fact that I can come into camp no worse than second on the depth chart. "
On Texas: "It's a great opportunity to learn from one of the best RB's in NCAA football (Cedric Benson). I also have the chance to come in no worse than second, and I can fight for the starting job too, I mean he's a great player but there's always someone who could come in and take that spot. Also the family atmosphere and the tradition."
On Mich.: "I haven't been there yet, but they have a rich tradition, and they have two RB's who might go to the NFL, so that's another situation that might be good for me."
On Pitt: "They have young players and I think that if I go there I think I can come in a separate myself from the rest of the players. They also have a rich tradition."
On how he will make his final decision: " I'm not going to release it to the press. Whichever school I commit to, they will know, but I won't release my decision til signing day. It will be between my family and the school. I don't want to keep everyone in suspense, but I just don't want it out. "
