L.A. Harbor's White sets first visit

Los Angeles Harbor RB John White (5-9, 185) is a special player, using his speed, quickness and big-play ability to help lead the Seahawks on a playoff run last fall. This season, he's continued to be the multi-purpose threat everyone knows he can be and he recently set up a visit to an SEC school...

"I'm visiting Kentucky on October 9th for their game against Auburn," White told JCFootball.com. "They are a school that's been recruiting me for a while and I'm very interested in them right now, but I'm going to go through the whole process and take my visits before I make a decision."

In addition to his offer from the Wildcats, White also has offers from Houston and Washington State and he said he's been in contact with schools like Arizona, Oregon and Arkansas State as well.

"I'm open to anyone that wants to recruit me right now," White said. "I'm not going to limit my options, but obviously, those schools (that have offered) are going to get more of my attention just because they've showed me how much they like me."

As a freshman last fall, White lead his team with 1,036 yards on 164 carries and 18 touchdowns while also hauling in 47 receptions for 470 yards and five more touchdowns.

He also was a deadly kick returner, averaging 26.2 yards per return including two for touchdowns and helped lead the Seahawks to a 9-2 record ending the season ranked ninth in the state of California.

So far this season, White his on pace to match those totals, rushing for 445 yards and four touchdowns, while hauling in six receptions for 40 more yards and averaging nearly 25 yards on seven kickoff returns.

"Teams are game-planning a little for me, so my teammates have had to make some plays and they have," White said. "We are 2-2 now and we have a big game coming up this weekend against Golden West.

"I think we can still make the playoffs and that's where our focus is right now. After that, who knows what can happen?"

White is on track to graduate in December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
