A defensive back out West that is starting to see his recruitment pick up steam is Riverside (Calif.) J.W. North athlete Lester White. White is a talented safety with two early offers and several more looming.
J.W. North has been one of the top programs in the state for several years. White is this year's top prospect and has seen his stock sky rocket in recent weeks.
"Everyone who has come by really likes him a lot," new Husky head coach Scott Pearne said. "I wasn't here last year but after watching his film, this kid is an incredible player. He's a devastating hitter and at 6-1, 195, he's a big kid with a great frame.
"He covers a ton of ground as well. He played in a man free defense and was all over the field making plays. He has incredible film and every coach who has seen it really likes him a lot.
"Washington State was the first school to offer him and then Nebraska offered about a week ago. Those offers are both in writing and then there are a lot of other schools who sound like they could be close to offering as well. We've had a ton of schools come by to see him. Most of the Pac 10, USC, Arizona, Arizona State plus schools like Boise State and a lot of others."
In terms of a time line for a decision, coach Pearne said he didn't know what White's plans were as of yet.
"We really haven't had a chance to talk about that yet," Pearne said. "With me being new here on campus, we've been trying to get things going as far as Spring ball and preparing our team. So I'm not sure what he wants to do but I think he'll go through the process and take his time before committing anywhere."
