2008 North Carolina 101.2 10.0 3.7 2.7 0.5 6.9 3.82

Honors:

  • 2008 ACC Pitcher of the Year

Strengths:
White has a strong arsenal of pitches, starting with a fastball that tops out at 94 mph with sink.  He also throws a slider that shows flashes of promise.  He’s got an ideal pitcher’s body and lots of athleticism (he was a basketball star in high school).

Weaknesses:
White doesn’t have the present stuff of Stephen Strasburg or the uber-projectability of Kyle Gibson.  He’ll have to improve his slider and changeup to be a starting pitcher in the big leagues.

The Future:
First 15 picks.
