Peter White picks Maryland
Maryland landed its second Signing Day commitment this morning when St. John’s College (D.C.) offensive lineman Peter White faxed his letter of intent to College Park at 9:14 a.m., according to UMTerps.com.
The 6-foot-5, 340-pounder picked Maryland over offers from Miami and Tennessee. White, a four-star prospect, made official visits to College Park, Knoxville and Coral Gables. UM was White’s first offer, according to The Washington Post.
"It doesn't mean as much to you until you get your own [scholarship offer],” White told the Post. “When I got that first offer on September 1 from Maryland, I was smiling the whole day."
ESPN.com’s scouting report says White’s future is most likely as an offensive guard.
Gives good effort but just can't be a finisher or be effective as a downfield blocker carrying his current weight. Powerful coming off the ball and delivers with his hands an upper body. Can move a base technique defensive lineman off the ball but has trouble if the defender slants or angles.
