Miller School (Charlottesville, VA) senior Andrew White III has become one of the most coveted two-guards in the country, scoring offers from Kansas and Texas, among others, within the past few months alone. The blitz of scholarship activity is settling down, and the 6’6″, 210-pound wing guard/forward is now turning his attention towards figuring out his college future.
