There is a buzz around Las Vegas, Nev., concerning 2007 prospect Billy White. A handful of schools are already recruiting the 6-foot-7, 185-pound small forward from Green Valley High School, but Las Vegas Prospects AAU club head coach Anthony Brown feels certain that White his destined for a huge summer "blow up."
"Louisville is hot on Billy's trail after seeing him this past summer," said Coach Brown. "LSU has called. BYU is very interested, and of course, UNLV is on him more than anyone else. Coach Kruger has seen him play twice this year."
Already set to participate in the adidas Superstars Camp this summer, White has the length and the skills with the basketball that college coaches crave.
"He is a lefty with a smooth game like Lamar Odom's," said Brown. "That is who everyone around here compares him to.
"He shoots the three, plays above the rim and pushes the ball up the court like a point forward. In fact, his high school coach is thinking about using him as their point guard next year."
White, who averaged 17 points, 9 rebounds and 3 blocks per game this high school season, will play for the 16-under Las Vegas Prospects squad.
"He will play for our 16's, but they will play up in the 17-under division," said Brown. "Billy doesn't need to be on the 17-under team playing behind Marcus Lawrence, P'Allen Stinnett and Andre McFarland."
