WR Darius White

Recommended Posts

Sorry if there is already a thread on this guy, I looked through every guy and didnt find him. Anyway has an offer from us and is a five star WR from Texas. Texas already has four WR commits for this class, do they even take another one? I assume they would make room for him, but on texas' rivals site it says he named a leader. Does anyone know who is leading and do we have a shot at him?

Assessing the talent: ESPN's eval starts off:

This dude is a player. White is eerily similar to last years Rueben Randle out wide only we feel White has more of an explosive second gear and maybe an inch taller.
Let's just say, someone's season will be changed by getting this guy. Check out the vid at the ESPN link and judge for yourself.

 

Odds of becoming a Cornhusker: 2%

 

Scout says Texas is leading. It's possible one of their other WR verbals leaves if he commits to Texas so we got that going for us. Oh and at least USC hasn't offered :dunno

SHOCKER!!!!

 

"The highly sought after receiver still hasn't trimmed a lengthy list of scholarship offers. White recently told SN Today that he was keeping an eye on USC, LSU, Texas, Florida, Nebraska, Notre Dame and the Sooners, of course. He said he was just looking for a place where he'd fit in, where he could have some fun."

No kidding. A Percy Harvin style receiver that makes a stadium hold their breath when the ball is thrown towards him is something Nebraska could do with. I think our receivers are doing all right as they are, but definite room for improvement.

I wouldn't say he's the Harvin type of receiver.. not the same speed. But still a big time receiving threat.

Does he ever mention anything about setting up visits or anything? It seems odd to me that neither White nor Seastrunk have visits set up. Seastrunk had one to Cal but thats it.

A month ago he told Scout he hadn't narrowed it down to where he wanted to setup visits, yet. Sounds like he still needs to work on that. :dunno

No, but a playmaker of that caliber at receiver wouldn't hurt. Someone defenses have to absolutely respect and scheme around.

I can agree with that completely.

Star receiver reportedly high on OSU

Darius White is rated by Scout.com as a five-star prospect and the nation's No. 1 wide receiver recruit. Sources indicated that White may have shortened his list of possible destinations to two schools — Oklahoma State and LSU.

 

A 6-foot-4, 210-pound wideout from Fort Worth's Dunbar High School, White reportedly also has been recruited heavily by Oklahoma, Texas, Florida and Texas Tech.

 

Jan. 2 already was a big date on the Oklahoma State calendar as the Cowboys face Ole Miss in the Cotton Bowl. Depending on what White has to say during the Under Armour All-America Game in Orlando, Fla., it could wind up becoming an even more significant Saturday for the OSU football program.

 

White, who averaged 22.2 yards per reception during the 2009 season, is expected to announce his college destination during the Under Armour game.

 

Accompanied by his mother and two younger brothers, White recently made an official visit to the OSU campus. He plays for the Dunbar basketball team, and it is believed that a member of the OSU football coaching staff attended Dunbar's game last Tuesday.
