"I already sent it," explained White. Just like that, Louisiana Tech Head Coach Derek Dooley has some help up front for his team.
John White, a defensive tackle from Northeast Oklahoma A&M, will help out inside with D'Anthony Smith and Mason Hitt next year. Jacob Miller, from Hutchinson College, can play both offensive guard and tackle.
Numbers were a problem on both sides of the line for Coach Dooley in 2008. Both White and Miller will enroll for the spring quarter and participate in spring practice.
While both players add depth to the 2009 squad, they will bring much more than just depth. White put up big numbers and gives Defensive Coordinator Tommy Spangler the kind of pass rush he covets. Miller will contend for a starting spot at either right guard or right tackle.
