White was one of the Dawgs four permanent team captains in 2021, and was the program’s leading rusher for the second season in a row with 856 yards on 160 carries. 

White ended his career as the program’s No. 15 rusher of all time. What  ended his career at UGA with 2,043 all-purpose yards. He had 2,043 yards rushing with 25 rushing scores.  White had one punt block in 2020 vs. Arkansas. He added a touchdown against the Hogs a year later while recovering a punt that was blocked. 

White picked Kirby Smart’s Bulldogs over a host of schools including Alabama and North Carolina.

“He is a pounder. He doesn't allow guys to get shots in on him. There is opportunity here with the Riders for Zeus,” ESPN’s Todd McShay said after White was selected.
