White's easily become one of if not my favorite players to ever wear the purple and gold! I really don't remember hearing anyone ever say anything bad or negative about this young man and I would certainly love it that he's my oldest son's favorite player too! Congrats DW, you certainly earned and deserve the acknowledgment. U will be missed a ton next year

He ran into some trouble as a recruit, but thankfully he has been nothing short of spectacular off the field as a tiger

To think he wanted to be a RB first lol.

He would have excelled at RB too, although not to the degree he has as a LB.

Tell Dylan Moses that he went to Tuscaloosa to finish as a runner up to Devin White. White came to his home state school, "LSU where legends are made". Bitch.
