Flying Orange: Syracuse Drawing Interest from ’14 SoFla QB Sean White

Is there room on the roster for another ’14 quarterback after A.J. Long’s strong verbal?

Syracuse football isn’t national championship contender, but that doesn’t mean some of the nation’s best high school players are ignoring the Orange. Syracuse has already received a commitment from A.J. Long, a member of ’14, to play quarterback, but SU has also made an offer to 6’2″ signal caller Sean White from University School in Ft. Lauderdale.

No, it’s not that Shaun White, the Flying Tomato. But he might be just as exciting to watch. Long and White recently played together at the Elite 11 in Columbus. White spoke very highly of the Syracuse commit, but noted the different style of play. White is considered a 3-star quarterback by Rivals, and is looking at both SU’s old nemesis (WVU) and new ones (NC State). 

White completed 69 percent of his passes for 2,670 yards as a junior, tossing 32 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. White thinks of himself similar to Ryan Nassib. He is a pocket passer, but when necessary can use his legs to pick up a first down.

White’s numbers are impressive, and plenty of other schools have made offers. White has scholarships from BC, Cincinnati, FIU, Hawaii, Houston, Miami (OH), USF, Wake Forest, West Virginia, Western Kentucky, and Western Michigan, according to Rivals.

He also has California and Wisconsin on his list, and plans to visit both this summer.

On the current status of his decision process:

“I’d like to commit before my senior season because as a quarterback, spots fill up.”

White has been interested in Syracuse because of offensive coordinator George McDonald, who used to be the wide receivers coach at Miami.

“I knew him when he was at the University of Miami down here and now that he’s up there and he’s offensive coordinator, that’s another thing that is attractive.”

Like another SU’s local target J.R. Zazzara, the Dome is something that tend to attract recruits.

“Playing in the Carrier Dome – that’s a real cool place from what I’ve heard. I’ve heard it’s a real tough environment to play at on the road and that’s cool.”

White’s family resides in Boca Raton, which is only about an hour from Miami – a place SU will play in the ACC. There’s also Florida State, Clemson and other southern schools making it easy for White’s parents to watch him play. While proximity to home is something White will consider, playing in the ACC could even the playing field for the Orange.
