WVU 2023 Commit RB Jahiem White Ran for 417 Yards, 6 Scores in High School Game



A future Mountaineer is providing West Virginia fans a reason to be excited.

WVU commit running back Jahiem White just put up an eye-popping yard total for any level. White ran for 417 yards in York High School’s win over Dallastown on Saturday afternoon. Not that rushing for over 400 yards in a game wouldn’t be impressive enough, but that doesn’t come close to describing the day that White actually had.

White ran for 6 scores and totaled 7 touchdowns on the day. His 417 yards came on 28 carries for an average of 15 yards per carry, but he also threw a 47-yard pass and even ran back an interception for a score while playing defense too. The 5’9 and 187 pound WVU commit showed how much of an athlete he really is more in this game than any other.

A few months ago, White detailed the family atmosphere vibe Neal Brown is creating at WVU as what helped sell him on moving to Morgantown to continue his football career. He also made it clear he has goals to reach the NFL.
