Columbia (SC) Blythewood High School Linebacker Charles White is a player that is beginning to cause a lot of activity the radar screens of recruiters. With an impressive highlight reel that demonstrates his prowess on the field and an equally impressive academic transcript, this player is slowly evolving from a true sleeper to a legitimate prospect. Charles visited the University of Miami this weekend and was impressed.
"There was about 150 prospects there," said Charles' father. "We had an opportunity to sit down with Coach Hurt and Shannon and watched Charles' game film."
The Hurricane staff was impressed with Charles' explosiveness, his field presence and his ability to run down plays. They have requested two more game films from Ridge View, where Charles played last season.
Vitually every school that has seen White's tape has invited him to their junior day. South Carolina did not invite White to their junior day and the Gameocks are who White would like to hear from the most.
"It would be great to play for them," said White. "It is right here at home for me, and my family would be able to follow my career."
Career minded is what White is. His ambition is to play on Sunday's, like so many other young prospects, but White has the drive and ambition that makes one thing he has a chance to make it. A 3.85 student with a 1250 on the SAT, White's free time is spent working out.
"That's what I do for fun," said White. "I just work out more and that's about all I do. I'm focused on my goal and know what it is going to take to achieve it."
Charles is an extremely level-headed young man who is focused on his goal of playing major college football. It's not clear right now who the winner will be landing his services, but it is clear that the loser will be those that don't even get in the running because of overlooking this outstanding player.
