Through six games, he has 21 RBI and 13 runs scored — he’s also stolen a base. It’s one of the most remarkable starts to a college baseball career in recent memory.
White could have been in the 2021 MLB Draft, but ultimately decided to fulfill his commitment to NC State. He was the No. 107 prospect nationally, according to MLB Pipeline’s rankings.
White will now play for three seasons with the Wolfpack before he’s draft-eligible again. He’s expected to be a key piece for NC State as it tries to make it back to Omaha.
NC State faces Quinnipiac on Saturday and Sunday.
