Q & A with Tennessee Defesive Back Commit Edwin White


With Tennessee losing such a key aspect to their defensive backs in Nigel Warrior, it is time for someone else to step into that key role. Two big returners are Juniors Bryce Thompson and Alontae Taylor. With the commitment of Edwin White from Mobile, Alabama, the Vols should be getting another talented DB to join the roster in 2021.


White had offers from some powerhouse schools including Mississippi State, Kanas, Ole Miss, and more. He is at the moment a three-star recruit and should be able to increase that with a solid senior season. For White, he has a lot of upsides, put on a little bit of weight and he is the perfect build for a defensive back. Overall, this is a very good signing for Tennessee as he should prove to be a great talent for the team.
