The 2012 recruiting class for the Missouri Tigers will have one name listed that they’ll have to wait for. Darius White will likely be worth the wait, however. The Texas wide receiver announced earlier that he would transfer to Missouri to join Gary Pinkel and the team’s move to the SEC. However, Pinkel now says that White will be listed on this year’s recruit list which certainly bolsters the overall effect given how much White was sought after by other elite schools.
White hasn’t done much in his first two seasons as a Texas Longhorn, but he definitely has the ability. Terez Paylor gets the story:
White, who told the site that he already has a relationship with several current Tigers from the state of Texas (including Kip Edwards and James Franklin), will sit out the 2012 season and have two years of eligibility remaining starting in 2013.
White, who stands 6-feet-3 and weighs 200 pounds, was a highly recruited prospect out of Dunbar, Tex., a few years ago. According to Rivals.com, he had offers from several top programs, including Auburn, Florida, Oklahoma, Oregon, Notre Dame and USC.
