Donnie White Jr. enjoys BC visit


Three-star defensive end Donnie White Jr. (St. Louis/De Smet) could be near a decision.

White returned from an official visit to Boston College on Sunday and had nothing but positive things to say about the ACC school and the area of Chestnut Hill, Mass. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound end, who might be a hybrid outside linebacker in college, said Boston College left enough of an impression to put the program in the forefront of his recruiting favorites.

“It was pretty nice overall,” White said. “I got there Friday morning, and a couple other officials were there. We went out to eat and met the coaching staff, which I really liked. The coaches have been there a long time, so that tells you a lot right off the bat.”

White also said he enjoyed watching the Eagles play Clemson, despite the Tigers earning a 45-31 victory over Boston College. White had a chance to see the game routine of the Eagles, something he said was one of his favorite memories.

White said he most likely will make a decision in the next week or two. He took an official visit to Tulsa last week and enjoyed that trip, as well. Tulsa and Boston College were his only scheduled officials.

“I’m unsure if I’m going to schedule anymore,” White said. “I found myself liking both places a lot. I think it’ll be soon that I have my mind made up.”

White, in addition to offers from Tulsa and Boston College, has offers from Arkansas, Arkansas State, New Mexico and Wyoming, among other programs.
