Biography: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after leading Michigan State in all receiving categories, posting 70/990/9. Junior totals included 43/659/1.
Positives: Smart receiver with a natural pass catching skills. Intelligent, finds the open spot on the field or comes back to the ball out of breaks. Uses his frame to shield away opponents and protect the pass. Displays terrific eye/hand coordination. Sells routes, effectively adjusts to the errant throw then looks the ball into his hands. Takes a pounding and hold onto the ball. Solid downfield blocker.
Negatives: Lacks a quick release off the line into routes. Marginal sharpness into breaks. One speed receiver who lacks the burst.
Analysis: White is a smart and tough receiver who gets the most from his abilities, is physically limited, and lacks the great outside. His awareness and overall approach could help him catch on as a fifth receiver.
