NOTE: Kansas State has elected to advance players’ classification even though the 2020 season did not affect eligibility. Those who wish to take advantage of this extra year will be listed as a (“super”) senior again after their original eligibility would have been exhausted.

White had four receptions for 46 yards and 17-yard touchdown in a win at West Texas A&M.

He also returned four punts for 15 yards on the season.

Prior to his collegiate career, White played under head coach Tom Nickelson at Pittsburg High, where he was named the Sports in Kansas Class 4A Offensive Player of the Year.

He earned first-team all-state honors as a senior from The Topeka Capital-Journal, while he was an honorable mention pick by the publication as a junior.
