CFC100 Keelan White staying home for university

Home is where the heart is, and CFC100 Keelan White is excited to continue his U Sports career in front of family and friends with the UBC T-Birds. The Handsworth Royals product announced his commitment during UBC’s Saturday night matchup with Calgary, and we were able to catch up with White for a quick quote prior to the game.

CFC100/CFC60 Recruiting Stories

You couldn’t come across a coach in Canada who didn’t have good things to say about White, and while we only had official offers on the board from UBC, Calgary, Manitoba, Laurier and Simon Fraser – it’s hard to believe there wasn’t 26 other program that would’ve welcomed him with open arms if the lottery fell their way. White is a playmaker of the highest order, and he’s put his full capabilities on display this year with 20 receptions for 402 yards and 3 touchdowns, plus another 13 carries for 146 yards and one touchdown along the ground – all of this in just three games. He initially caught our eye in the ninth grade when it was already obvious he’d become a superstar down the line,

“White has been on our radar since the end of 9th grade. He’s a very smooth athlete who seems to have a feel for the game.” says CFC Lead Analyst, Clint Uttley.

“The biggest thing that stuck out to me was how athletic he is with the ball in his hands. He just seems effortless when he’s running with the ball or actually running his routes. As far as prospects go, he might be one of the top prospects next season when you factor in the total package – marks, school, and simply a blue chip football player.”

White also explored a few NCAA options taking campus tours at Washington, Eastern Washington, San Diego State, Fresno State and Cal, but he formed a bond with the UBC staff that dated back to 2017 when he worked with them at the provincial level, and the allure of playing in front of his family was too much to pass up on,

“I wanted to stick around home because I believe that it will be best for me and my family. My parents are big influences on me and my football career, so I think it is best for them too as they can see me progress and excel in what I love the most.”

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
