Chase White Update

VandyMania.com talked with incoming Commodore Chase White of Plano, Texas (Plano West) about his preparations for his freshman season at Vanderbilt. Look inside to find out all the details.

Chase White has been working hard in order to be ready for his freshman season at Vanderbilt. White has decided not to participate in spring sports so he can focus on getting bigger, stronger and faster. "I am not participating in any spring sports but am focusing on increasing my strength and speed," said the big Texan. White, who has already been timed at 4.91 in the forty, blazing speed for an offensive lineman, has been working out at a performance center that caters to collegiate athletes. He's been lifting weights and training on a high-speed treadmill so he can get stronger and faster.

White says his weight is up to between 270 and 275 pounds. That's about a 20-pound increase over what he weighed at the end of his senior season. If he can get his weight up to 280-285 he might have a shot at contributing as a freshman.

White, who will graduate from high school on June 8, says that he plans on heading up to Vanderbilt in July so he can take classes in the second summer school session.

White has not visited Vanderbilt since National Signing Day but he'll be there soon, "I am going to be visiting this weekend for the Black and Gold game," said White.

Chase is excited about starting his college career soon. He talks to his future position coach, Robbie Caldwell, at least once a week and receives letter from the coaches about twice a week.
