Four-star RB Jaylin White (5-11 185) of Dothan, AL is a hot target for a number of SEC programs, and others outside the league. He just recently picked up an offer from Florida. USC was one him early dating back to when Thomas Brown was the running backs coach. Will Muschamp and offensive coordinator Mike Bobo have been involved with his recruiting throughout and are keeping the communications going.
“I talk to South Carolina every day just about,” White said. “I’ve been talking with Coach Muschamp and Coach Bobo. Coach Muschamp says he wants me there bad. He likes the way I carry myself on the field and what I can do. And I love Coach Bobo. He’s a cool guy, laid back a little bit.”
The national analysts are high on White who rushed for 900 yards and 16 touchdowns. He’s now ranked the #12 running back prospect in the country in the 247Sports Composite and the #7 prospect in the state of Alabama. And the Gamecocks are in the mix with some other big-time programs.
“They are in my top five right now with Florida State, Tennessee, Penn State and Texas A&M,” White said. “South Carolina has got a good coaching staff and they care about you going to school. I’m looking for a good engineering program.”
White also has offers from Arkansas, Nebraska, UCF, Louisville, UAB, Ole Miss, Louisiana and Arkansas State.
White said he’s been getting the strongest push from the Gamecocks and Tennessee. He has visited USC, Florida State, Auburn, Alabama and Tennessee. He plans to wait until after his season to make a decision and he also hopes to be an early graduate.
