The train keeps rollin’ for Charlie Strong and the UofL football staff. Monday morning began with news of another committment for the class of 2013. Ryan White, a Cornerback from Trinity High School in Louisville, became the 3rd member of the class of 2013 to commit to the Cards. He joins Kyle Bolin and Donel Elam.
CSZ was actually the first to contact White after he made his committment (that was confirmed by White). Since we were already posting the interview with Donel Elam in the morning, we held this one until today. We knew he would be bombarded with questions all day long, so we kept it short and sweet. Here is what he had to say…
5’9 175 lbs
Cornerback- Trinity High School
Other offers: Arkansas, Michigan, Kentucky, Illinois, Vanderbilt
CSZ: What made you choose UofL?
Ryan: The coaching staff and how I felt every time I was there.
CSZ: Was there a particular reason you committed this early?
Ryan: Well I just felt it was the time because I kept saying to myself “I’m going to end up going to Louisville.” So I made up my mind.
CSZ: Growing up, did you look up to anyone that played the game of football?
Ryan: As I was growing up, I didn’t look up to anyone. I barely watched football because I was always outside playing it.
CSZ: How special is it to be able to commit to your hometown school, which is on the rise nationally?
Ryan: It’s really special to be apart of something like that.
CSZ: How do you see the 2013 class shaping up?
Ryan: I see it shaping up pretty well. It’s going to get rolling soon.
CSZ: Are you now going to work on getting your Trinity teammates (James Quick and Jason Hatcher) to commit?
Ryan: I will try hard haha. But they will choose where they want.
CSZ: Anything you would like to say to the fans?
Ryan: Go Cards!!
CSZ obviously wants to thank Ryan for taking the time to talk with us. As a local kid that just committed to UofL, we know his day was probably very busy. We are excited that we were the first to talk to him, and we certainly appreciate it Ryan!
