Faxes in: Ashton White

ASHTON WHITE
Clinton, MD

Measurables: 5’11”, 182 lbs.

Accolades: Third-team all-WCAC, consensus 3-star prospect, No. 28 cornerback per ESPN.

Other Impressive Offers: Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Iowa, West Virginia

Projected Position: Cornerback

 

Quick Take: Notre Dame was in early on White, who had committed to Virginia Tech very early before reopening things. He camped in South Bend to earn an offer, giving the Irish coaching staff a look at his length and athleticism.

He’s certainly not the highest profile recruit on the Irish board. But he’s a “profile” guy who the Irish jumped on early and helps the depth chart immediately.

 

What he means for the Irish: After playing over a dozen freshmen on defense, White won’t likely need to see the field in 2015. But he’s the type of guy Kelly has made a living finding — a very good football player who might not get the acclaim on the recruiting trail that others do, but looks and fits the part athletically.

Going into the Washington D.C. area and pulling another athlete out is something to be excited about as well.
