The Path to Norman

DaShaun White was headed to College Station for a long time. The path to becoming a Sooner took some twists and turns to happen.

The OU staff started recruiting DaShaun White over a year before his signing day. Shortly before the summer, his offer came.

It felt that the Sooners were in a great spot early on. However, White’s first public commitment at the end of the summer went to the Aggies. At the time, it was clear that he was still torn and that OU wasn’t out of the running. The entire fall, the Sooners’ coaching staff kept at the talented linebacker. Their hard work eventually paid off.

Career So Far

White arrived at OU this summer. TFB has heard that his athleticism stands out.

2018 Season

Jon-Michael Terry and White have been splitting reps at the Mike linebacker spot behind Kenneth Murray recently, as TFB mentioned earlier this week. White is going to play a bunch while he’s at OU, and some of that will start this year. Time will tell if White truly makes a name for himself at OU this year or next, but Sooner fans are excited to see what he can do.
