An eligible sophomore, White had Tommy John surgery after his senior year at San Jose's Bellarmine Prep and redshirted in 2014 as a freshman. He bounced back well in Santa Clara's bullpen last season, with 40 strikeouts in 32 innings. White has stretched out as a starter this year and just kept getting better as the season went along despite the Broncos' team struggles. With 118 strikeouts, he ranked seventh in the country, and his 11.54 K/9 IP ranked 14th. White's fastball sat 89-93 mph early in the year, with crosscheckers seeing him top out at 94, his velocity jumped in his final two starts. His heater sat at 91-95 while touching 96 10 times in his last start at Brigham Young. In a 15-strikeout effort at Portland, in which he threw 74 of his 100 pitches for strikes, he drew swings-and-misses with four offerings--fastball, upper-80s cutter (which at times morphs into a low-80s, loopy slider), upper-70s hard curve with 12-to-6 shape and a new changeup he just started throwing in late March. Scouts like the cutter best among his secondary pitches but worry about his lack of track record and long arm action. White has some athleticism and a good pitcher's frame at 6-foot-4, 207 pounds. He was getting crosschecked into the first five rounds.
