After the news broke of Cory White's commitment to the University of Miami, his size was the topic…
OL commitment sees school for first time
"I spent the weekend in Miami and had a great time," Cory White said. "I went for Saturday and Sunday and enjoyed working with Coach Stoutland." White, 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, talked more about the experience he had with his future position coach. "Coach Stoutland is real exciting," he said. "He's real intense and I really like that. I love his style. He was doing a lot of teaching. In two days, I learned some new pass sets based on which way the lines are moving." At the time of his commitment, White said he wasn't sure whether he'd end up a tight end or tackle at the next level because of his size. He thinks he got a pretty good idea of that over the weekend. "They had me working at left tackle the entire time," he said. "Coach Stoutland really wants me at tackle. Of course it'll depend on my weight but they think I'll end up having good size for a tackle if I progressively put on weight." White said he enjoyed working with and competing against some other quality players. "I met Xavier Su'a-Filo," he said. "Me and him really connected. Coach Stoutland paired us up and was joking around that when Xavier comes to Miami too we'll be roommates. I don't know if he'll come too but I know that he really likes Miami and seemed to be having a real good time. He's a great player. They had him working on the right side." In addition to his camp experience, White had a chance to see the school for the first time. "It was amazing," he said. "I just love the location. Downtown is just 10 minutes away. The beach is about 15 minutes away. The campus was beautiful and everyone seemed real cool and everything. The coaches were great." White, who said his commitment is final and he's not really considering anyone else, is coming off a strong spring. "We ended up beating Nease in our spring game," he said. "Beating one of the top teams in the state like that set the bar pretty high for us this year and we like it that way."
