Local Sports

LITTLE ROCK — It was a busy couple of weeks for new 2021 Arkansas target James White as he interacted with Razorbacks coaches leading up to a scholarship offer on Tuesday.

White (6-5 guard, Heritage High School in Conyers, Ga., composite national No. 98 / 4-star prospect) had his first virtual meeting with Arkansas coaches on June 17, and he said his second Zoom meeting with the UA staff on Tuesday included an offer from head coach Eric Musselman.

“Very excited,” White said on Tuesday. “(Would be) honored to be able to play for such a good program and coach.”

White reportedly also holds offers from Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Arizona State, Florida State, Georgia Tech, and Creighton among others.

He talked about a timeframe for a decision and signing his letter of intent.

“Don’t have a date set right now,” White said. “Shouldn’t be too far out.”

Holding an impressive offer list from high-major programs, White said he’s not in a position to name favorites or single out programs that might be recruiting him the hardest.

“Not at the moment,” he said.

White said he averaged 25.0 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2.2 steals per game as a junior in 2019-20.
