Ohio State currently has the nation’s second-ranked 2017 recruiting class, according to the 247 Sports Composite. Seeing plays like this from four-star recruit Brendon White help illustrate why.
White, a senior at Olentangy Liberty (Powell, Ohio), is the son of former Ohio State and NFL defensive back William White. A star safety who is being recruited as an “athlete,” but don’t be surprised if you see head coach Urban Meyer getting the ball into White’s hands when the Buckeyes’ offense.
This 43-yard, one-handed snag off a pass from sophomore quarterback Mitchell Okuley came in Friday night’s OHSAA Division I state semifinal game vs. Cleveland’s St. Ignatius. The Patriots did not score on the drive, however, eventually falling, 24-14, and ending their season at 13-1. But as White has done his whole career, he left an impression. After Okuley left the game late in the first half, White stepped in and played quarterback. He finished with 91 yards passing and two touchdowns.
Take a look at the rest of White’s performance from the final game of his high school career.
Now that his time on the high school gridiron is behind him, White can’t wait to get to Columbus. No doubt, many Buckeye backers feel the same way.
