Huge news to start the work week as class of 2013 cornerback Ryan White out of Louisville Trinity has committed to U of L.
White, who is ranked as a top 200 overall player (#188) in the class by 247Sports.com, had already received offers from Michigan, Arkansas, Illinois and Kentucky, among others.
Despite opponents consistently opting to throw away from him, White made 44 tackles (6.5 for a loss), had one interception and 12 pass breakups as a second-year starter for the USA Today national champions. He also returned 29 punts for 533 yards and three TDs, the longest 88 yards.

Charlie Strong stated during his wrap-up press conference for the class of 2012 that in order for Louisville to compete for national champions it has to keep landing some of the best players from all over the country, but it also has to start getting the top local players to stick around. With White and Lexington Catholic quarterback Kyle Bolin, he's off to an awfully impressive start.
