Sadiq White is the No. 33 player in the 2025 On3 Industry Ranking. The 6-foot-7 high-flying forward is the leading scorer for a nationally ranked Charlotte (NC) Myers Park team. White is averaging 16.5 points, 9,3 rebounds, 1.4 steals, and 1.8 blocks per contest to this point.

“I’m an athletic wing,” White told On3. “My ability to get downhill and guard multiple positions while being an athlete I would say are my best features. I watch a lot of Scottie Barnes and Dillon Mitchell, guys my size who are long and athletic.”

On3 caught up with four-star Sadiq White after a live viewing at this weekend’s Good Guys vs. Cancer event to talk recruiting.

“I haven’t taken any official visits yet, and I don’t have any planned right now,” White said. “I’ve taken unofficial visits to South Carolina, Syracuse, and NC State. They’ve all offered me.”

White Talks Recruiting

South Carolina: “It really is like a family down there. Coach (Eddie) Shannon embraced me really early, and I had a good time down there on my visit. They play fast, so that is really good. They play with a lot of spacing and let their athletic guys get downhill. I like how they let their athletes be athletic and clean up down there.”

Syracuse: “The coaching staff, Coach (Adrian) Autry and Coach B (Brandon Straughn) and G-Mac (Gerry McNamara), they all embraced me real well went I visited. They like my versatility and think that would fit well with how they’re trying to play. I talk with them almost every day, about life, about basketball, about expanding my game. Everything.”

NC State: “Coach (Joel) Justus has been great. He’s wanted me to come over and check out the program, and see how they work. And those guys work over there, they really get after it. They’re really physical as a team, and I love that. They have a bunch of dogs over there.”

“I’ve heard from Arkansas a good bit, Coach (Ronnie) Brewer and Muss (Eric Musselman),” White said. “Duke and UNC are both starting to express more interest recently.”

At the End of the Day

“I plan to start taking my visits in the Spring, after my high school season ends,” White said. “I don’t have any set yet, but I want to try and go to as many of the schools that have offered me as possible.

“I’ll want to win, that is first and foremost for me. I want to go somewhere that I will develop. I don’t want to just be thrown out there and be raw as a player, I want to go somewhere that is going to invest in me. 

“I’ll want to play fast, get up and down the floor. So a system that gets out there and defends all over the floor and gets out and runs.”
