QB Sean White picks up new offers
By Derek Tyson
ROCKLEDGE, Fla. -- Quarterback Sean White (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla./University School) has seen his stock rise during the last few months. The 6-foot-1, 199-pound signal-caller has recently picked up offers from Cincinnati and West Virginia.
White, who transferred from Chaminade-Madonna Prep School, threw for 3,286 with 40 touchdowns and only six interceptions as a junior; he added 422 yards and six TDs on the ground. White said no schools are standing out to him early in his recruitment -- but did single out a couple of programs for differing reasons.
"I am just trying to take it all in," White said at the New Level Athletics 7-on-7 Southeast regional tournament in Rockledge, Fla. "I am going to go through spring and stuff to see who is interested in me and then take my visits and go from there."
He admits, he was excited to receive one of his most recent offers.
"West Virginia is cool because of the offense that they run and you can put up big numbers and stuff. We talk on the phone a lot and we have a good relationship. We talk about things other than football."
As for upcoming plans, White said he would like to visit several schools on the East Coast.
"I am definitely going to take some visits, I have to talk to my family," White said. "I want to see West Virginia. I want to get into the North Carolina area. There is a lot of schools recruiting me like N.C. State, North Carolina, Wake Forest and Duke. So I'll probably make those trips."
White stands at six offers, but he feels there could be more coming.
"I think N.C. State could be close," he said. "There are a lot of schools that could pull the trigger at any time. I have a good relationship with a lot of coaches."
For White, he has always had a dream to play for one school.
