“I learned a lot with the weight room staff and nutritionist,” White said. . The coaches have a real connection to their players. They are all from Alabama it seems like.” Of course Tee Martin is from Mobile. Defensive coordinator Derrick Ansley is from Alabama and it was Ansley who White spent the most time with and the 5-11, 175 pound prospect really enjoyed his first ever visit with Ansley.
“He was really chill,” White said. “He asked me a lot of questions. He told me that I was football smart. We got on the board a little before the scrimmage and he told me to focus on a couple of guys during the scrimmage. After they were done he asked me what I saw out of them and we talked some more football.”
White said Ansley seeking his opinion after the scrimmage told him a lot about the Vols defensive coordinator. “It showed me a lot of respect and what thinks about me,” White offered. “I have other visits to take but leaving the visit Tennessee is at the top of my list and they will be hard to beat. “I’m coming back up for a game this season.”
“The culture felt different. The energy of the coaches and the players was hype. They like being the underdog and that people count them out. They were ready to play the season this weekend.
Tennessee is recruiting White as a defensive back and a return specialist. Some other schools are talking receiver. White said he didn’t care noting he was looking for the quickest path to play. White plans to see LSU, North Carolina, Arkansas, LSU and the in-state schools, Alabama and Auburn. As he makes those trips, it’s pretty clear that the Vols have set the ball high. “The visit was better than I anticipated. The attention they showed me that was crazy. They talked to me about doing what’s best for me and not worry about in-state pressure.”
I hope we don’t miss on the 2021 defensive back here inTN. I just came up very talented two Kids from Alcoa High School both whom started as freshman! Isaiah has get size and ball skills. Ahmauud is an explosive athlete with thick lower body.
