Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

Once pegged as a potential MLB pitcher, White became the Florida Class 3A Player of the Year in high school before heading to South Florida. After struggling as a freshman and sophomore with the Bulls, he transferred to Western Kentucky and sat out 2015 before taking the reins in 2016.

White dazzled in his first year as the Hilltoppers' starter with 4,363 passing yards (10.5 per attempt), 37 touchdowns and seven interceptions. After taking a step back as a senior (4,177 yards on 7.5 per attempt, 26 TDs and 8 INTs), White impressed at the Senior Bowl, going 8-of-11 passing for 128 yards and a score through a quarter of work before Kyle Lauletta stole the show and claimed game MVP honors.

ANALYSIS

With good size and an excellent arm, White has the tools that scouts look for in potential starters. His accuracy improved during his senior season, and when he gets hot, he can carve up defenses with zippy precision. White is also willing to hang in the pocket, step up and deliver with bodies around him.

Plenty of polish is needed, however. White's accuracy remains inconsistent and he rarely throws with proper touch, often sailing fastballs over receivers' heads on vertical throws that demand a higher, softer trajectory. He also tends to lock onto receivers and stall in his progression at times, making him a beat slow to deliver.

Skeptics will point to the disastrous results in White's toughest college test (at Alabama in 2016), but others will see a piece of clay worth molding.
