The class of 2025 in North Carolina is really brewing up to be another special class, as we continue to see the development of players throughout the state. Many have elevated their play over the summer but one player that we continue to talk about is 2025 6’8 Sadiq White, who played with Team United this past summer and will be on the court with Myers Park once again this upcoming high school season.
When talking about White, we must rewind back in time when we first watched him in action in March of 2021, where we had this to say:
“There were a lot of enticing standouts on display, but White was arguably in a category by himself in terms of intrigue. Already a long, fluid 6-foot-4, he possesses an incredible array of tools along with the ability to actively toggle between the interior and perimeter. White handled the ball, made smart passes, and showcased athleticism and versatility on both ends of the floor. He’s great in transition, both with or without the ball in his hands, and finishes well when attacking the basket. Although he’s already impressive, White is truly just beginning to harness his long-term potential. Should he continue to work, White could realistically become a star in the near future.”
Fast forward to today, White has only taken those steps but some may say that he has surpassed early expectations and what he could ultimately turn into at the end of his high school career should make fans extremely excited. When you watch White operate, it is hard to comprehend how a 6’8 young prospect moves so well and he will have you mesmerized. He is extremely athletic at his size and moves/runs the floor extremely well, really showing his ability to finish at the rim and there aren’t many that will test him there. But he also has tremendous pop to his game; his quick second jump to go along with his length, White at times just looks like he hovers above the competition and simply snags the ball over opponents.
He has only continued to add pieces to his game and we fully expect that to continue throughout the year, as well as his confidence level continuing to rise as well. There are areas where you could see growth in his game but for such a young player at his age, White at times looks like a cheat code as a player, which is why big-time schools are already heading his way.
