White Looking To Follow Up Monster Year

From out of nowhere, Kalamazoo Hackett Catholic Central RB Jezrel White burst onto the state scene last year, putting up numbers that seemed like something out of a video game. Now, he's on his way to proving that wasn't a fluke and that he is a legitimate college recruit.

Not every college recruit is a 4-year varsity phenom. Some players sneak under the radar for a few years before being "discovered." That looks like it will be the case for Kalamazoo Hackett Catholic Central's star halfback Jezrel White. White wasn't sure what to expect his junior season, his first with the varsity, but he more than adjusted. White ripped off 2216 yards on 265 carries and 24 touchdowns.

"My sophomore year on JV, we ran spread so I didn't really play much tailback," he explained, "so getting all these carries a game was something new for me."

Now White is out to prove that season wasn't a fluke. Coming from a small catholic school, there are questions about the level of competition he played against. This summer's camp circuit is something he hopes will prove his worth.

"I'm going to Michigan State, Eastern Michigan and Northwestern," White reported and says he hears most from those three schools as well as Michigan and Central Michigan.

White does not have any offers at this time, but the chance to see him in person at camp against top competition just might change that.

He self-reported a 4.6 in the forty yard dash, Michigan Varsity will have more on White including Video Highlights on his outstanding junior season over the next few weeks.
