Weight: 211

Position: Shooting Guard

Team: Mississippi

Class: Sophomore


Right-handed… At 6'5", 210+ pounds, and a ball of athleticism, White is the exactly what NBA front offices look for in a Shooting Guard. He has shown the ability to play Point Guard, setting up teammates and handling the ball (mostly when teammate Chris Warren went down with a season-ending knee injury last season), but White is best at the Shooting Guard spot. His ability to play both Guard spots makes him even more valuable to the Mississippi Rebels, but also to an NBA franchise. He is a very good decision-maker and is averaging just about one turnover per game at this point in the season… As a shooter, White excels from the perimeter. He can score from just about anywhere on the floor- showing off deep-range in a number of games this season. He offers a quick first step and pure scoring instincts… He is a solid defender, but if he commits to playing good defense, White could make quite an impact at the next level… He has good footwork on both ends of the court and has proven to be fundamentally sound in all areas of his game. He has great mechanics on his shot- textbook form and great elevation…

Most NBA front offices would like to see White play more of a Point Guard-role at Mississippi because with his athleticism and offensive ability, he would flourish at the next level if he developed as a Point. As we mentioned already, White spent some time at the 1 last season when the Rebels starting Point Guard went down with an injury and White really impressed scouts. His ball-handling abilities, plus his sound decision making ability made White seem like a natural at the Point Guard position. This season he is back at the 2, so unless there is another freak injury in the Rebels backcourt, front offices will have to project how he would handle playing the Point again… At times, White has shown a tendency to fall in love with his jump shot. This has led to a poor shot selection and over-shooting at times just to try and make a shot. White has very good quickness and excellent athleticism, which he needs to start to utilize to get into the lane and draw contact. He is only averaging a few free-throw attempts per game, which demonstrates our point that White is content standing around the perimeter too often…
