As Division I football programs search for new quarterback prospects, size more often than not plays a crucial role in the arduous process. However 5′ 6″, 155 pound quarterback Desmon White of DeSoto High School (TX) , has proved overly harsh critics wrong and has committed to play football at Big 12 contender, TCU. What a story! Time will only tell if this kid continues to play under center at the next level, but something tells me he could be one hell of a weapon in a trick play.
Career High School Stats:
According to Bleacher Report:
The results were staggering. In his final two high school seasons, White led the Eagles to a 28-2 record. This season, he piloted an offense that averaged 52 points per game, earning Texas Class 5A offensive player of the year honors, as noted by David Just of the Dallas Morning News. Past winners of that award include Drew Brees, Vince Young and Cedric Benson.
White’s numbers aren’t a fluke either. He plays in one of the most talent-rich districts in the country.
In 2013, the Eagles defeated six playoff teams in the regular season and made it to the 5A Division I state semifinals before falling in a heartbreaking 42-35 loss to Allen, a team that finished ranked No. 2 in the nation, according to USA Today.
