6’10 ’22 Brandon White, “Length, Upside, & More”
Standing a lengthy 6’10 and sporting a 7’5 wingspan, rising junior Brandon White (North Rowan) has already gotten offers from the likes of ECU, Houston, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, South Florida, Wake Forest, and Western Kentucky, not to mention interest from the University of North Carolina. The scary part is White is still learning the game. We’re talking about an athletic “big” that has unlimited potential and upside.
In the game we watched at the Teammates Nationals, White showcased passer friendly hand, not to mention excellent court vision on his outlet passes from the defensive end of the court. Offensively, White has the ability to step out and hit the midrange and although he missed his only 3-point opportunity, he showed good shooting mechanics, form, extension and follow through. More importantly, he has a soft shooting touch from the free throw line, especially since he has the ability to get fouled often and get plenty of scoring opportunities from the charity stripe. While White sports an enormnous wingspan, we would like to see him play with his hands up more on both ends of the court.
Back in 2019, Phenom’s own Miles Masercola stated, “White has a legitimate shot to be a high major prospect. At 6’9 White tries to rip the rim off the backboard every time he gets the chance and that’s an incredibly welcoming sign for a young big. He’s certainly raw in some areas, his perimeter game is still evolving, his body is still transforming, but he’s got a great frame, athleticism, and a high motor. He runs the floor really well in transition and does a great job protecting the rim on the defensive end. He rebounds both backboards and is absolutely imposing as hell for a sophomore. There’s a lot to like here and he will certainly get a MAJOR bump in our next rankings update.” –
Just recently, White cracked Rivals Top 150 players nationally. That being said, look for White’s recruitment to pick up even more steam throughout the season. He has all the tools, length, athleticism, and a developing mind set, although we’re not quite sure if he understands how could he really could become. The sky’s the limit and don’t be surprised if White jumps to the No. 1 spot in the North Carolina 2022 before his senior season.
