Illinois is just the ninth team and third Big Ten team to offer at White. So far, the Bishop McNamara athlete has offers from Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Virginia Tech, Boston College, Connecticut, Temple, West Virginia, and Ohio State.

Per 247Sports, Ashton White is heavily interested in Kentucky, Maryland, and Virginia Tech along which two teams who haven’t sent him an offer. These teams include: Penn State and Tennessee.

Right now, the 247Sports Crystal Ball is predicting Ashton White to give his commitment to one of four schools. These schools are Maryland, Virginia Tech, Ohio State, and Penn State.

White committed to the Hokies in December, but decided to decommit this past February. At the moment, the favorite among the recruiting experts seems to be the Ohio State Buckeyes.
