Charlie Strong landed an important commitment from talented Trinity CB Ryan White Monday morning. White, a 5'9, 175 pound defensive back, chose Louisville over Illinois, Kentucky, Arkansas and Michigan.

Ryan White, a standout on Louisville (KY) Trinity's state and national championship 2012 football team, will stay home to play for Charlie Strong's Cardinals.

White, a talented 5'9, 175 pound cornerback, attended Louisville's Junior Day on Saturday and publicly committed to the Cardinals Monday morning.

Though most teams didn't throw to his side of the field, White, perhaps the top defensive back in the state of Kentucky, managed 44 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, 12 pass breaks and one interception for a dominating defense that allowed only 116 points and 102 yards passing yards a game as a junior.

Ryan White chose Louisville over several BCS programs, including Michigan and Arkansas.
A dangerous return man, White also returned 29 punts for 533 yards and three touchdowns, including an 88 yard touchdown against Cincinnati Moeller.

Perhaps not the most heralded prospect on Trinity's roster - that distinction goes to four-star recruits Jason Hatcher and James Quick, White, a first team All-State selection in 2011, had plenty of impressive college options before choosing Louisville, turning down offers from Illinois, Arkansas, Kentucky and Michigan.

"I'm athletic, quick and know how to play the game," White told Scout.com. "I'm quick and physical at the line. I have good breaks and fluid hips. I want to improve my speed to get faster and quicker out of my breaks."
