2014 NFL Draft: DeAndrew White returning to Alabama for senior year


This year’s group of wide receivers, especially the underclassmen, could be the best we’ve ever seen in any NFL draft, but it won’t include Alabama Crimson Tide receiver DeAndrew White who announced via Twitter that he will return to Tuscaloosa for his senior season.

This conflicts with an earlier report from annistonstar.com’s Marq Burnett that said White was ‘likely’ to leave.

White has been hampered by injuries in his Alabama career, including tearing an ACL to have his best season in 2013 as a redshirt junior. He had his best game of his career in the Sugar Bowl loss to Oklahoma where he recorded 139 yards, including a 67-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

The 6-0, 190-pound receiver will combine with Amari Cooper, Robert Foster and Chris Black to give the Crimson Tide a nice quartet receivers for whoever earns the job as AJ McCarron‘s successor at quarterback.
