“The reason I chose Georgia Tech, with the team they have all they need is just one more piece,” White told SNY.tv by phone. “The games that they lost, they lost a lot of close games by two points, a lot of close games. So I just thought it was experience. And so for next year, I think they have the mindset of winning. And I just want to be a part of something like that.”
White, who plays both forward spots, also considered Georgia, Oklahoma State, Alabama and Boston College.
He averaged 11.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.7 blocks last season in 15 games, but suffered a stress fracture in his tibia that ended his season.
“I will bring scoring, rebounding and a defensive lock-down guy on the 2, 3, 4 spot,” he said.
White joins a 2015 class that includes Virginia Tech graduate transfer Adam Smith and two Atlanta natives who transferred in forwards Nick Jacobs (South Atlanta) and Charles Mitchell (Wheeler).
