Having a relationship with Coach Walton and the coaching staff is a huge thing for Ohio State. White said, “I value their words because at the end of the day. I have to believe what is said to me and that’s from coach Walton and coach DuHart, that’s who my relationships are with. I trust them and believe in their coaching.”

His interest in the Buckeyes is high as well. White details his thoughts: “I am very interested in Ohio State, just look at tradition and the track record at the CB position, and who else better to coach you, coach Walton bring tons of NFL experience to the CB position.”

White said, “I can definitely see myself as a Buckeye. Being taught by 2 coaches I believe in and trust getting developed [to take] my game to the next level [and] being taught what it takes to succeed at the NFL level, while dominating the college level.”
