"I was supposed to visit Washington this weekend, but Coach (Tyrone) Willingham wasn't going to be there," said Las Vegas running back Corey White. "So, I'm going to Colorado State instead. It really comes down to Washington and Colorado State. I'll probably make a decision once I get back from Colorado State and have a chance to visit Washington on an official visit..."

Three-star running back Corey White (5-8, 190, 4.55), from Las Vegas Bishop Gorman (Nev.), still favors Washington slightly over Colorado State, UNLV, Fresno State and Wyoming. All have offered except UNLV and Fresno State.

"My parents and I went on an unofficial visit to Washington in July," White said. "I spent a lot of time with the coaches on my visit. I really like the whole coaching staff. Coaches Tyrone Willingham and Trent Miles (running backs) are amazing. They really show that they care about their players. They take the time to really get to know and talk to each one of them.

"The Huskies have a slight lead over Colorado State only because I've had a chance to meet the coaching staff. I'm going to Colorado State this weekend (December 8). Who knows what will happen when I get back from my visit.

"Colorado State is recruiting me the hardest. They were also the first to offer when I was a junior," he said. "Coach Karl Ballard (assistant coach) has been in contact with me for a couple of years now. He's always called me after my games to see how I had did. Colorado State has always showed an interest in me.

"I just found out that my host from Colorado State happens to be a really good friend of mine, DeAngelo Wilkinson (defensive back). He went to my school and our families are really close. I talk to him all the time. I consider him a wise friend when it comes to the recruiting process. He's offered a lot of information like the fact that I better not go to the University of Colorado. The decision is 90% mine, 5% my parents and 5% my Coach David White. I'm really close to my coach. We've been together for four years and he's watched me grow.

"I've spoken with UNLV Coach Kris Cinkovich (wide receivers) over the years too," White said. "He kept track of my brother who played for Oregon until he was injured. I kind of wish that UNLV had made an offer only because it's close to home and it's in my state. Coach Cinkovich says that he would like me to take an official visit so that we could talk. Who knows, the offer might come late. I know that they are looking at some other guys at my school.

"I haven't had too much contact with Fresno State and Wyoming. I'm considering Wyoming because I have an offer from them. I know Fresno State is on the borderline of giving me an offer. I'm not sure what the deal is with them being on the boarder about an offer.

"My favorite team as a child was Oregon," he said. "I was speaking with them often while they were recruiting my brother and while he played his first year at Oregon. But the coaching staff changed and the line of communication got cut off. If Oregon had made an offer I would have taken it. Since my brother got hurt in his sophomore year, and can't play anymore, I sort of feel like I'm now playing for him and me."

Final senior (7-4) stats: 1400 yds rushing/12 TDs.

White reports a 2.8 core GPA and 16 ACT.
