Biography: Deciding to skip his final two years of collegiate eligibility, White leaves Mississippi after helping it share a part of the SEC West Division title and make a run to the NIT semifinals last season. White scored the third-most points by a sophomore in school history with 530 and was the team's second-leading scorer with 15.1 per game in 2009-10. The guard was also second on the team with 4.6 rebounds per game. White finished his career 10th in school history with 123 3-pointers. The 20-year-old from Memphis, though, shot 34.7 percent from 3-points range and 42.9 percent overall in two seasons. Able to play either guard position, White looks for his opportunities first and his shot selection has been questioned. So has his ability to get to the foul line. White averaged fewer than 3.0 free throw attempts during his career, but he made a major improvement at the line his sophomore season, hitting 71.4 percent compared to 62.8 when he was named SEC Freshman of the Year. White, a gold medalist last summer with the U.S. U-19 National Team, has improved his ball handling and defensive skills over the past two seasons but still needs work in those areas if he is going to make a significant impact at the NBA level. He is expected to be taken late in the first round or early in the second.
