"Yes sir I just committed to USF," said White "I felt really comfortable when I went down there with the coaches and the area, and could really see myself living there It's a great academic program and I feel like they are really building something down there "

White had offers from top programs including Auburn, South Carolina, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Georgia Tech, and Texas Tech, but ultimately chose USF.

"I feel great about my decision," said White "USF is a great place to live They have a great business program and they have a need for cornerbacks and I feel like I can fill that need "
