Class of 2015 guard Chandler White is among one of the top prospects in the state of Indiana. White uses his strength and athleticism to overpower smaller players and is dynamic slashing to the hoop. The 6-foot-2 guard has drawn heavy attention from Michigan head coach John Beilein and his staff and he most recently traveled to Ann Arbor in June for Michigan’s College Practice Camp. White continued to impress at the Adidas Invitational in Indianapolis last week with his Indiana Elite team and we caught up with him for a quick update about his recruitment, who’s showing him the most interest and what school he would love to earn a scholarship offer from.

“My jump shot and dribbling.”
Plans for visits and or camps in the next few weeks?
