Edwin White Announces Commitment to Tennessee

by | Mar 7, 2020 | Reporting

Edwin White, a multi-positional athlete from Mobile, Alabama, announced his commitment to the University of Tennessee on Saturday afternoon through a twitter post.

“First off, I would like to thank God for this opportunity because without him this wouldn’t be possible. I want to thank my mom for being my motivation and supporter since day 1, I do this for you and my brothers at home, and the fam. I want to thank all of my coaches for all they have done over the last 14 years, and I also want to thank all of the schools that recruited me. I would happily like to say that I’m 100% committed to the University of Tennessee.”

White, who’s listed at 5’11’’ 178 pounds according to 247Sports, held offers from Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Kansas, UAB, and a few other schools. White attends UMS-Wright Preparatory School and is the second Alabama native to join Tennessee’s 2021 class, along with 4-star wide-receiver Jordan Mosley, who committed to the Vols in June.

247Sports rates White as the 42nd best safety in the nation, 23rd best player in the State of Alabama, and 606th rated player in the entire country. The rising senior put together quite an impressive junior season, earning 87 tackles, in addition to picking off 9 interceptions — two of which were returned for touchdowns.

White joins 5 other commits in the Volunteers’ growing 2021 class, the others being 4-Star wide-receiver Jordan Mosley, 3-star running back Elijah Howard, 3-star cornerback Jay Jones, 3-star athlete Nate Evans, and Darrell Jackson — who is not currently rated by 247Sports. The class is currently the 2nd best in the SEC and the 14th best in the nation, however, those numbers are bound to fluctuate as the class progresses.

A little over a year ago, the University of Tennessee’s talented cornerback, Bryce Thompson, was in hot water when a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence sidelined his promising career. Fans wondered if his future would be hampered by character issues. Despite some backlash, Head Coach Jeremy Pruitt determined that suspending Thompson for the first two games of the 2019 season would be sufficient, as long as the sophomore defensive back learned from the experience and kept his nose clean. It didn’t take long for Thompson to prove to his coach and team that he could walk the straight and narrow.
