There is no secret to the success of the LSU Tigers. They are going to put a physical and athletic defense on the field year in and year out that will challenge opposing offenses for every yard they gain to put the Tigers in a position to win just about every game. Part of that philosophy has been finding playmakers in the secondary who can shut down opposing receivers and change the course of a game with a big turnover. Tre’Davious White appears set to keep that tradition alive in Baton Rouge for years to come.
As a freshman this season, White has quickly made a name for himself as a future star in the SEC. The defensive back recorded 52 total tackles, 7th most on the team, including 2.5 tackles for loss. He defended eight passes, third most among freshman DBs in the conference this season, including one interception and even forced a fumble. The 5-foot-11, 177-pound corner showed a serious ability to shut down pass-catchers this season and will only get better as he continues to grow at LSU.
For his efforts, White was named to the SEC All-Freshman team this season and will come back in 2014 as a sophomore with an excellent shot at developing into one of the best corners in the conference. From there, it’s a small jump to being recognized among the best cover-men in the country and a future star in the NFL. It’s a formula that has been tried and tested in Death Valley a number of times already and White looks ready to be the next man to take the journey.
On his way to stardom, he will undoubtedly be a major piece of the future success at LSU. After a great freshman season, how high will Tre’Davious White rise during his collegiate career with the Tigers?
