White gives Longhorns high remarks after visit
Although the Texas Longhorns haven't jumped off the high dive yet when it comes to the recruitment of prospects in the 2010 recruiting class, there's no question that a select group of prospects have already emerged as vital prospects as the players finish up the first month of their junior seasons.
After having their most high-profile non-conference game pushed back to the past weekend because of Hurricane Ike, the Longhorns hosted a number of the state's top prospects on Saturday for their home game against Arkansas.
One of the biggest names in attendance was DeSoto cornerback Adrian White. With offers from the likes of LSU, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M, there's little question that the current No.5 player on the Lone Star Recruiting Top 100 list ranks as one of the most important players on the Longhorn radar.
"I really enjoyed myself," White said. "It was nice real good game and Coach Brown invited us to come into the locker room after the game. I really enjoyed."
The 5-11, 170-pound White had visited Austin this summer when he attended one of the school's summer camp sessions, but he admitted that there were things that he got to see on Saturday that you can only see on game days.
"I had gone down there before and I had seen the dorms and the campus," White said. "I kind of new it would be a good thing because of the game, but it's not what I expected. IT was more than I expected. I talked with the coaches and I talked with Coach Chambers while I was there. Everything went really well. I'll just say it gave me a better appreciation to the environment there."
According to White, the Texas staff has explained to him that they won't offer prospects until after they put pen to paper with the current recruits from the Class of 2009.
"They told me that they don't send out any offers or usually offer until next year," White said. "When they do offer, it's usually going to be when you are getting ready to head into your senior year. They told me to keep doing what I'm doing and by next year everything should be there."
