Four-Star Dandy Dozen Athlete Kam’Ron White made his football debut with Clinton during the 2015 season, and his impact was felt immediately. This fall he will look to have the same type of impact for Coach Hugh Freeze at The University of Mississippi.

White committed to Iowa State in August, but Ole Miss continued to recruit him. After decommitting from the Cyclones in early January, Ole Miss saw their chance and continued pursuing White.

On National Signing Day, White’s choice came down to two teams: Minnesota or Mississippi.

In front of friends and family, White chose Ole Miss.

“I felt like Ole Miss is close to home, but it’s also a place where I feel like I can take care of business,” White said. “I’ve talked with Coach McGriff and Coach Freeze. They explained their plan for the next four years, and I felt like I could have an impact there.”

White has proven to have an impact on the football field for the Arrows, both offensively and defensively.

As a wide receiver, White used his size and strength to frustrate corner backs, finishing second in receiving yards for the Arrows with 522-yards and 31 receptions. White also accounted for 6 touchdowns during his senior season.

White’s size and strength also proved formidable on defense where he played free safety.

During his senior season, White accounted for 51 total tackles with seven of them coming in Clinton’s Championship game. He had one sack on the season that came against Warren Central in the Arrows’ rematch with the Vikings on Nov. 18.

White lead the team with 6 interceptions as well as yards after interceptions racking up 154-yards on interceptions alone.

Three of White’s interceptions were key to the Arrows’ efforts to secure the 6A MHSAA Championship. Two of those interceptions came against Hernando during the first round of playoffs where White totaled 122 return yards.

White had a huge interception in the second half against Pearl in the 6A Championship game. White’s interception stopped a possible scoring drive by the Pirates, and helped Clinton secure its first State Championship.

White said he is comfortable playing either side of the ball and will work with the coaches to see where he will fit best. “I feel like the coaching staff at Ole Miss can definitely help me get to the next level,” White said. “I just know it’s the place for me, both athletically and academically.”

White was named to the MS-AL All-Star Game where his 49-yard pick six in the third quarter gave the Mississippi team a brief 14-13 lead. He was also named to The Clarion-Ledger’s Dandy Dozen list. White was named to the All-State Defensive team as well as to the SES Elite 10.

Kam’Ron White is the son of Jonathan and Kimberly Ruffin.
