"We just finished our season on Friday," Leroy told Dawgman.com. "I had 7.5 sacks and 75 tackles. My coach had me playing mostly as a defensive end. I'm not sure why."
Now that his season is complete, White can fully concentrate on recruiting, where he has
three official visits already set up. "I'm going to Texas Tech on November 17th,
Tulsa on November 24th and Washington on November 30th." He's also
looking on taking trips to Alabama and Kansas State, if possible.
There may be something that cuts short White's visit schedule; a solid visit to his current
leader. "Washington is still my #1 team right now," he said. "I'd really like to play in the
Pac-10 and on the West Coast"
That would only be possible if Leroy had an offer from the Huskies, and now he has that base
covered. "I got an offer from Coach Williams three weeks ago," he said. "He said that they
would love to have me and that they want me to come up on my visit to make sure everything
fits so I can become a Dawg." White currently has offers from Washington, Tulsa, SMU,
Minnesota, Texas A&M, Tulane, Memphis, Louisiana Tech and Kansas State. "I
have an offer from Alabama, but they are going through an NCAA investigation, so I
don't know what's going to happen with that," he said.
Leroy would be lying if he said he wasn't tempted to call off the whole thing and commit to
Washington right when he was offered. "It was very tempting, but I really need to see it first to
make sure I see everything I need to," he said. "My Dad is going with me on my visit. If
everything goes well, I'm going to commit." A strong statement coming from a strong athlete.
White laid out the criteria for that scenario to happen. "I need to make sure it's an academic fit
and a social fit and a physical fit in terms of football, making sure I get to play and that I fit in
And where does he see himself fitting in? "I could see myself playing linebacker or strong
safety," Leroy said. "Well, I run a 4.45 40, so I'm fast enough. And I might have to lose 10 or 15
pounds to do it, but I could. Linebacker is probably a more natural position for me, but I'll play
wherever I fit in best."
And make no mistake; Leroy is ready for the challenges of football at the Division-1 level. "I feel
I already have the mindset to go in and play right away," he said. "I'm confident and feel that I
can adapt to any situation I come up against."
