RecruitNoVA Fab 30: Antonio White of Osbourn HS is #30
by Andy Hilton, recruitNoVA
Osbourn High School has struggled for success on the gridiron in the last couple of years. The Eagles last made the playoffs in 2011. New Head Coach Cortez Whiting was brought in to change the culture at Osbourn and that change is happening now. His first season at the helm resulted in a 1-9 season in 2017, but there are signs of progress. That progress includes developing talent like our #30 Northern Virginia athlete in our recruitNoVA Fab 30.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in all of Northern Virginia. That’s a tall task, considering that we track the talent at 86 high school programs in the region. Kicking off our countdown as the 30th best senior prospect region-wide is Osbourn defensive back/wide receiver Antonio White.
#30 Antonio White (2019 DB/WR 6-0 170) – Osbourn High School
Osbourn’s 1-9 record in 2017 is not indicative of the success that’s waiting with continued hard work. Antonio White delivered on his end of the bargain in his junior season as he led the team in all phases of the game. White starred at wide receiver, defensive back, kick returner and punt returner for the Eagles. Those efforts earned him a second team All-Cedar Run District selection at DB in his junior season. At the UltimateRecruit Clash of the Titans Showcase this April at Highland Springs High School, Antonio was the Regional MVP at defensive back.
Just last week, White shut down his recruitment. Antonio fielded interest from several Division I schools and made the camp rounds this summer. There was something about Elon University (just west of Durham, North Carolina) that struck a chord with him. White is now a Class of 2019 commit for the Phoenix.
