White gets compared to fellow prep Florida outfielder Brett Phillips as both are athletic, speedy center fielders. White is more of a wiry athlete at 6-foot-2, 175 pounds, and has a good profile as a lefthanded speedster with range and arm strength. He emerged as a prospect as a sophomore as both a pitcher and hitter, but left shoulder surgery limited him to just five games as a junior and limited his showcase exposure. His arm strength has started to return this spring, including some low 90s readings in short stints on the mound. Scouts like White's tools in center, as he's a consistent 6.5-second runner over 60 yards with improving instincts. He is adding strength and has batting practice power with surprising bat speed, but he has a raw approach at the plate and hasn't faced a lot of hasn't advanced pitching. Scouts have compared him to players such as former Florida outfielder Matt den Dekker (now with the Mets) all the way to Steve Finley if his power develops. He wasn't a consensus supplemental pick, but if he's considered signable away from a Florida commitment he could go that high to the right team.
