SoCal standout getting ready to set visits

Three-star defensive back Lester White (6-2, 210, 4.48) from Riverside (Calif.) North had a stellar season on both sides of the ball as a senior. He currently offers from the likes of Arizona State, Oregon State, Washington State, Boise State, Fresno State, San Diego State, UNLV and Nebraska. He is getting serious interest from a host of other schools.
White has already earned all-league honors for his senior season performance. On the defensive side of the ball from his safety position, White accounted for 70 tackles and three interceptions, one that he brought back to the house for a touchdown.
On the offensive side of the ball, White was a jack-of-all-trades playing running back and wide receiver. He ended up rushing for approximately 500 yards and had around 500 pass receiving yards. He ended up scoring eight offensive touchdowns.
White was also tough on special teams and scored a touchdown on a kick return.
On the recruiting trail, White is in the process of setting up his first visit. Interesting enough it isn't with a school that has offered him as yet.
"I'm working setting up a visit with UCLA on January 16th," White said. "That is the only visit that I'm close to setting up."
"LSU, USC, Washington and Nebraska are also talking about me visiting," White said. "I have no favorites at this time."
One of the reasons that setting up visits for a player as skilled as White is he will be taking his ACT the first available time in January.
White grew up a USC fan, but UCLA has made some strides.
"I went saw UCLA play Tennessee and Oregon State," White said. "I'm beginning to like UCLA because I talk to the Bruins more than other schools."
"I want to take my visits to see if I get the feel for the school," White said. "If it feels right, I could commit on the spot."
"I have no preferences of the location that I attend school," White said. "It has to feel right."
White is being recruited to play safety in college. The scouting report on White is he's a playmaker who can hit and is outstanding in space. He has good field presence and awareness.
White was selected to the Rivals.com California Preseason Top 100 team for the class of 2009 landing as the Golden State's No. 39 prospect at any position.
