Joseph White is the kind of athlete that every high school coach would love to have in his program. He may be a little on the quiet side, but his leadership in action speaks for itself. White can make the big plays, and he’s athletic enough that a coach can put him in any number of positions on the field and expect him to make the team better with his presence.

Joe White was getting a lot of recognition after a successful sophomore season. One college coach remarked to me that he saw White as a future college All-American. He’s that good.
Fast forward and over the offseason, White pulled in offers from Buffalo, Charlotte, ECU, NC State, UNC, Virginia and Virginia Tech. White was offered by NC State and North Carolina in May prior to his junior year. By mid-May, just a few months ago, White committed to the University of Virginia and hasn’t looked back.
He was offered by the Cavaliers in February and has developed a great relationship with UVA assistant coach Marques Hagans.
“It was my pick because the environment is great. They have great academics and a hard working program,” White said immediately after making his verbal commitment to Virginia.
