Summary:After impressing at Green Oaks High School in Shreveport, Louisiana, it took White only three games as a true freshman to earn a starting nod for the Tigers and finish his debut season as a member of the SEC All-Freshman Team. White missed only one game, in 2015, during his career at LSU.

As a senior, White received Consensus All-America honors; was named to First-Team All-America by the American Football Coaches Association and Walter camp; and was named to First-Team All-SEC by league coaches and the *Associated Press. *White was a participant in the 2017 Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama, but missed the game after suffering an ankle injury during one of the week's practices.

According to White's draft profile, some of his strengths include exceptional footwork, patience in press formation, skilled pattern reading and coverage. White was tasked with covering talented receivers like Alabama's Amari Cooper (in 2014) and Calvin Ridley (in 2016). 

"[White has] the feet, athleticism and instincts for prolonged coverage responsibilities, and his twitch will always have him near the throw," said NFL analyst Lance Zierlein. "Best suited for all forms of man coverage. Should compete as a special teams performer. Lacks run-support physicality to be an every-down corner, but he's talented enough to challenge for slot duties right away."

Stacking up: NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock listed White as the fifth-best draft-eligible cornerback, while Chris Burke of Sports Illustrated ranked White at No. 8 for the position group. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks did not include White in his top-5.

Student athlete:White graduated from LSU in December 2016 with a degree in sports administration.
