Bio: 
Two-year starter who made 25 tackles (two for loss) with two interceptions and four pass breakups as a senior. Junior totals include 25 tackles (two for loss) with an interception and two PBUs. Reserve cornerback and key special teamer during his first two seasons. Played six games with the FSU basketball team after his freshman season.
Pos: 
Solid cornerback who flashes next-level ball skills. Effective backed off the line of scrimmage, tracks the pass in the air and has a burst to the ball. Lays out or extends defending the throw, possesses good hands for the interception and works hard. Fluid flipping his hips off the line and smooth in transition while effectively diagnosing the action.
Neg: 
Outmuscled by large receivers. Tends to half-side shuffle/half-backpedal downfield which hurts his ability to break on the throw. Easily taken from the action by opposing receivers.
Analysis: 
White is a solid cornerback prospect who could lineup in dime packages at the next level as a zone cornerback or backed off the line of scrimmage.
