NBA Comparison: Allen Crabbe

Current Ability: 6.5

Projection as an NBA Player: 6.5

Projected Draft Spot: Undrafted

Opinion: White is a mediocre athlete that projects as nothing more than a spot up 3 point shooter offensively. Usually when he puts the ball on the floor it is for a pullup jumper. Defensively, he gets beaten off the dribble too often. White is a nice college player with good size for a SG, but is not NBA material.
