The Texas Longhorns coaching staff is keeping a close eye on Cy Creek product Josh White.
A rising three-star outside linebacker, White has a serious impact on the game, whether it’s stopping the run, getting to the quarterback, or dropping into coverage.
The Cy Creek standout’s intense play-style has resulted in him receiving nation-wide attention and a total of 12 offers from the likes of Alabama, Baylor, Duke, Houston, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech.
“I would say the recruiting process is treating me great,” White said. “I’ve met a lot of great coaches.”
White is in the process of being evaluated by Tom Herman and company.
He is impressed with the Longhorns coaching staff and believes that they will turn things around. White is in constant communication with defensive coordinator Todd Orlando and has some pretty motivating conversations with the coach.
“The coaches are really good at what they do,” White said. “I stay in contact with Texas once a week. I talk to coach Orlando and we always talk about life after football.”
Texas took a tough loss the first game of the season and bounced back with a win this past week. White still believes that Texas is gradually bouncing back. He wants to see the defense play with some grit.
“I think they’ve done well so far after fixing all the mistakes against Maryland,” White said.
“I just want to see a ruthless defense with a lot of big plays.”
Getting back to the Forty Acres is what White is looking forward to the most. He’s developing his list of visits at the moment.
“I’ve visited Texas once and still planning when I can make another trip,” White said.
How close is White from receiving an UT offer?
“I would say I’m pretty close,” White said. “I just need to get back on the field and ball, I’ve been hurt.”
White is ranked as the nation’s No. 28 outside linebacker, and as the No. 47 player in the state for the 2020 cycle, per 247Sports.
