How has everything been going for you AAU wise with the All Iowa Attack Nike team?
"Overall as a team it has been good. There have been some ups and downs but we have started to pull through. I've been able to gain attention from schools and have done a lot better I'd say."

What schools are recruiting you?
"Other than the offer from ODU, Sam Houston State called and talked to me. UNI has called and they are very interested. The University of Massachusetts in Lowell called and as of today the University of Arkansas Little Rock has also called. Those are the five Division I schools that have contacted me. Several Division II schools have called. I am still keeping my options open."

What prompted the offer from Oral Roberts?
"Actually I went to their basketball camp a few weeks ago and I played very well there. I impressed all of their coaches and that is what kick started their recruiting. They watched me play this weekend and after a couple of games they decided to offer."

What did it mean to you to land your first Division I offer?
"It actually meant a lot. My mom went to school there and it has always been on the back of my mind."

*Note: Since this interview was conducted, Sam Houston State has also offered White.

Are any other schools close to offering?
"Sam Houston State said that they play to offer very soon. The other schools have been giving me a lot of information and asking basic recruiting questions."

What is the situation at Iowa?
"They called my coach, Vance Downs, and he referred them to me. Fred Hoiberg has called my coach and so have a lot of coaches."

Do you have a favorite now?
"At this point, I do not have a favorite. It is pretty early so I am just open."

When do you want to decide?
"That is actually a great question because I'm being called a late bloomer. I think I will decide at the beginning of the season if not some point during the winter. It depends on how things fall into place."
