SPARTANBURG, S.C.- Georgia linebacker commit Charles White of Blythewood (S.C.) High is having a solid showing at the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas this week.
After the Wednesday practice sessions, he spoke with Rivals.com about his performance to date at the event and about his early decision to attend UGA.
"It's been going really well," White said. "There is a lot of competition out here, but any time I get to be around the game of football, it's a good thing."
"I'm doing pretty good," he said. "I'm getting better everyday. I'm learning how to adjust to a little more speed that's out here. I'm doing a good job of adjusting and making some plays."
"Everybody out here is good," White said. "The running backs are quicker and making better moves than you are used to. The offensive linemen are taking better angles. The defensive lineman are doing a great job of getting pressure and the linebackers are reading well.
"Everybody's out here doing a good job."
In recent years, the Bulldogs have had numerous players participating in the game. Last year, Prince Miller (South Carolina) and Ricardo Crawford (North Carolina) were among the top prospects. The year before, the Dawgs were well-represented with Mohamed Massaquoi and Joe Cox (North Carolina) and C.J. Byrd (South Carolina) among the future Dawgs on each roster.
"I'm sort of the lone ranger out here," White said. "I'm just trying to do my best to play my hardest and represent the University of Georgia."
Georgia assistant coach Jon Fabris was at Shrine Bowl practice this week to personally scout White. Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt was the keynote speaker at Thursday night's Shrine Bowl banquet.
White is a three-star rated prospect by Rivals.com.
