White, who was first-team all-district in 8-5A with 114 tackles last season, chose the Aggies over 19 other scholarship offers including Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, Baylor, Arkansas and UCLA.

“The relationships I've built with everyone there are beyond any I've had up to this point and the opportunity to play in an underdog program against the best teams every Saturday with guys I feel like I could strive around are what led my heart to the decision,” White said. “My heart has been at A&M for sometime now.”
