On Friday morning, Kentucky football fans woke up to the report that Brandon White committed to the program. White, a wide receiver from Cincinnati, attended Archbishop Moeller; a high school who had done the Wildcats well in the past.
“They have a need for speed at receiver,” White said. “For sure. Especially with how they’re going to play this year, fast and quick. They’re going to have Wan’Dale (Robinson), no doubt, and he should be this year or if not this year then next year in the league. No doubt. They said they already see me as similar to him and as a fit in how they’re playing. They said if Wan’Dale doesn’t touch the ball 15 times a game then something’s wrong. They like to have the ball in playmakers’ hands.”
Prior to committing to Kentucky, White had received offers from West Virginia, Purdue and Indiana. White ranked as the No. 37 player in the state of Ohio. He was originally expected to make his decision earlier this summer, but postponed the process.
