Northwest Louisiana’s top senior football recruit will finally announced his college decision Friday afternoon.
Alabama, Arkansas, Florida State, LSU and Ole Miss are the finalists for North Webster running back, who plans to make his choice at 2 p.m. Friday in Springhill. More than 40 schools extended an offer to ESPN’s No. 3 athlete and the No. 7 senior in Lousiana, according to the 247sports composite ranking of all the major recruiting services.https://twitter.com/DevinWhite_40/status/680448811878105088
White earned 3A All-State honors as a running back after rushing for 1,650 yards and 31 touchdowns on 208 carries to go along with 12 receptions for 215 yards and two touchdowns. He also made a huge impact at linebacker for the 9-3 Knights.
An arrest in November on misdemeanor sex charges of carnal knowledge of a juvenile cost the 6-foot-1, 260-pound four-star recruit a chance to play in last Saturday’s Under Armour All-America Game, where White originally planned to announce his college decision. He got arrested again in late December on misdemeanor charges of “careless operation of a motor vehicle and flight from an officer.”
Neither charge appears to have had any effect on his scholarship offers and most experts project White will stay in-state at LSU, which already has ESPN’s No. 1 recruiting class for 2016. White plans to enroll early and participate in spring practices.
