2016 jumbo athlete stays home, selects LSU

BY foxsports • January 8, 2016

As Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz once said, there's no place like home. 

2016 stud athlete Devin White made his college commitment to LSU on Friday afternoon. The 6'0", 258-pound running back/linebacker opted for the Tigers over Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Ole Miss, and others. 

The commitment of White continues LSU's dominance in the state of Louisiana when it comes to recruiting. Currently, 12 of the Tigers' 20 pledges hail from The Pelican State. 

White is a fascinating player. He fits perfectly with LSU's smash-mouth rushing attack -- as he can not only carry the ball and catch passes out of the backfield, but also function as a space-clearing thumper of a fullback. 

Joining the likes of fellow 2016 commitments Stephen Sullivan, Michael Divinity, Dee Anderson, and Saivion Smith, White will be an early enrollee. All five are expected to be in school by next week.
