Since emerging on the national scene last spring, four-star 2007 prospect Billy White of Green Valley High School in Las Vegas, Nev., has picked up a handful of offers. Two schools that are new to his recruitment recently evaluated the 6-foot-7, 185-pound small forward.
"Memphis and Oklahoma State have been out to see Billy this year," said White's AAU coach Anthony Brown of the Las Vegas Prospects. "Oregon State is supposed to come out soon. They have offered along with Nevada, UNLV, USC and Washington, which was out here earlier in the fall. Iowa State is also interested in Billy."
On the season, White is averaging 12.4 points, 8 rebounds, 7.8 assists and 4 blocks per game. With his statistics as evidence of his versatile game, White has been playing a new position this year according to Coach Brown.
"Billy has actually been playing some point guard," said Brown. "His perimeter game is really advancing. His basketball IQ is going up. He is being more vocal on the court and getting guys involved. His game is maturing."
Once the season is over White, the No. 26 ranked prospect in the class of 2007, will determine who he will visit and whether or not he will visit in the spring or after the AAU season.
Billy White scouting report:
A small forward who prefers to play on the perimeter, White has a finesse game with a lot of upside. Both athletic and long, White has a solid skill base which just needs further development and refinement. Becoming a more physical and aggressive player on the defensive end and in the lane will serve him well.
