TVC corner prospect hauls in Big 12 offer

After a solid freshman season for Trinity Valley in 2012, CB Darius White (5-10, 177) is already off to a great start as far as recruiting goes, hauling in an offer from a Big 12 program. caught up with the talented cover-man and he updated us on which school has offered and what he does best on the football field...

"I got offered by West Virginia the other day," White told "I actually have only talked to them once. Last week I talked to their DB coach (Brian Mitchell) and he said that he liked my film and was offering me. I was really excited. I honestly didn't think it was real. I was like 'is this a real coach?'."

The Mountaineers are the first school to contact White after he had a solid freshman season, totaling over 40 tackles to go along with 11 passes defensed and one interception.

"My coach (Brad Smiley) said there are a lot more schools that will be coming after me this spring," White said. "I have sorta been through this before, so I'll be patient, but this first offer is huge. I'm really excited by it."

As a prep at Belton (Tx.) High School, White had plenty of schools after him and had planned to sign with Oklahoma State.

"I was going to sign with them, but then I wasn't able to get good enough scores on my SAT and that was sorta that," White said. "I talked to TVC and really liked their program a lot. They have a reputation for always getting guys into school, playing them and then getting them recruited, so I felt like it was the right place for me."

As far as what he does well on the football field, White said he loves to lock receivers down.

"You always like to play man-to-man, press and just lock guys up," White said. "I can play zone or press, but I prefer just to be aggressive and be up in guys' faces."

White has gotten it done in the classroom this year and is on pace to graduate in December with three years to play two following the 2013 season.
