Is Tacoma's Quazzel White, 3-star Cougar OL verbal, wavering after TCU offer and Ole Miss interest?

TACOMA's QUAZZEL WHITE, who verbally pledged WSU in November, tells CF.C he had a great time on his official visit this weekend. But with TCU and others now charging hard after the 3-star offensive lineman out of Lincoln High, White also made plain he’s still considering other options with Signing Day coming up fast.

“My general plan is to sign with Wazzu but if something happens, if something comes up, or if I see something else, then I will change,” Quazzel White (6-4, 300) told Cougfan.com.

White said he has an in-home visit with TCU scheduled for tomorrow and would “probably” take an official visit to Fort Worth.  White also said WSU head man Mike Leach, offensive line coach Clay McGuire and area recruiter Eric Mele were also coming by this week for an in-home visit but wasn’t positive on the day.

Ole Miss has also been in touch, White said.

“They watched my tape and liked it. They’re probably going to offer pretty soon,” said White.

CF.C asked White what his commitment level was to Wazzu.

“It’s pretty high, I’ve been to WSU 4-5 times,” said White, adding there was “a lot to think about.”

MEANWHILE, WHITE GAVE his official visit experience at Washington State top marks. Mom loved it too.

“This was my mom’s first college visit so of course she was going to love it. She thought everything was amazing. She was really happy about the opportunity that I have … They have a top notch program. They have a lot of stuff going on and going in the right direction,” said White.

White also raved about McGuire and Mele.

“(McGuire) is an outstanding o-line coach, he really knows what he’s doing. He’s got his X’s and O’s down. He’s a good guy to be around … (Mele) is really solid at building relationships, I’ve known him for almost a year and a half. We’ve been real close, real tight,” said White.

White said the way the recruits and players connected over the weekend stood out to him, and the academics presentation during his trip was a 10.

“It was amazing, they’re on top of it over there. The academic advisors and the systems they have at the school there shouldn’t be any (reason) to fail or be behind in anything in classes or getting my degree, there shouldn’t be anything that would hold me back,” said White.

He also laughed about his one-on-one talk with Mike Leach.

“He came out with his pirates - Coach Leach is crazy about pirates … he’s really cool,” said White.

White is rated the No. 7 offensive guard prospect in the West and 38th nationally by Scout.com.
