  • Is White a Tweener?

    Not big enough to play as a 4, and doesn't have the shot to be a 3?

    I'm not sure what he's supposed to be giving us...reminds me in that way of another White....Anthony from the late 90s

    Isaiah White shot 39% from 3 as a sophomore, so I'm guessing the hope is that he improves his catch and shoot success. Beyond him developing into a floor spacing wing that you can't ignore, I imagine he was recruited to USC to add maturity, toughness, energy, rebounding, defense and an aggressive mentality (for possessions).

    Peterson is so far the most impactful transfer due to his ball handling and scoring, but White finding and excelling at his role will take USC to the next level. USC generally has success with players who excel at doing the little things and don't always need the ball in their hand (e.g. Melton and Utomi). White could add a similar element to this year's squad.

      I was surprised that he didn't have more of an impact on the boards against UConn. He definitely is a tweener - sometimes that's an asset, sometimes a liability. Against UConn it was the latter.

        White seems to be most comfortably slashing. I love his determination although sometimes he seems to try to play a little above his skill level. He does bring a lot of toughness and energy and at times seems to will things to happen. The whole team’s energy seemed a little down in the UConn game.

          one could argue that he's a 2-4 tween. to me, he's like a bigger, tougher marcus simmons but with more offensive punch. he's gonna outhustle everyone and his play/attitude sets the tone. and he's proud of how he plays too. he's also like chevez in that he uses his body well and is very good at cleaning up someone's else's mess. stoked on this kid. especially when he stays in his lane....he's a fantastic player for this team.

            Yep definitely is a tweener. His build sort if reminds me of Aaron Fuller / Casey Cunningham. Definitely isn’t shy to shoot or take the ball to the basket. Love seeing his aggressive nature & hope he can get more opportunities to show what he can do.
