Felt this may have been coming after he visited for Maryland's junior day when I dug a little deeper to write the Maryland/DC piece. Kids commit so early and if they end up making a visit to another school this far from signing day, it's a pretty good indication the recruitment could be re-opened. I think Ohio State has enough other top options that he won't be in this class but regardless, he's a good player and you have to wonder what's going on at Virginia Tech. I'm speculating but it seems as though they are trying to get local kids on campus early, try and wow them and push hard for an commitment - same thing happened with Marcus Lewis. A while down the road they step back and think about their recruitment a bit more. Now I don't know the specifics with White but that would be my guess. Birm summed it up just right - it's a product of kids committing so early.
In my opinion this is why we need an early signing period. Because kids are being recruited earlier and earlier, commitments are being made earlier and earlier. Right now kids commit early often times to basically save themselves a spot so they aren't left out in the cold at the end. Early signing period would be a win for everyone - schools get more firm commitments and kids get better "spot security." Also, if a kid wants to commit early and be done with everything, they won't have to deal with schools constantly badgering them if they sign and make everything official. IMO you saw a step towards that for early-enrollees this year and you'll see an early signing period pretty soon. Has to be done to adapt to the changing recruiting landscape.
