Although Wyoming has offered, defensive end Donnie White Jr. (St. Louis/De Smet) had a chance to seriously think about playing extremely far from home for the first time on Monday.
White on Monday morning picked up an offer from Boston College – his first ACC offer – and upped his offer count to four. A 6-foot-3, 215-pound defensive end/outside linebacker hybrid, White now has offers from BC, Arkansas, Wyoming and Western Kentucky.
Arkansas, located a little over five hours away from White’s home, was the first school to offer last month. Since then, he’s received offers from Western Kentucky – four hours from home – and Wyoming – roughly 14 hours from home. A drive to and from Boston College would equate to roughly a day and a half, and a one-way flight would last about three hours non-stop.
When asked about playing so far away, White kept his answer simple.
“Wouldn’t have a problem with it at all,” he said.
White is coming off a 2011 season where he recorded 25 tackles, six sacks and three forced fumbles. His speed and explosiveness off the ball makes him a versatile defensive option at either end or outside backer, depending on defensive scheme.
