Prized quarterback recruit Brevin White has pledged to play college football at Princeton starting in 2018.
White took to Twitter to announce his decision:

White is one of the nation's top quarterbacks in the 2018 class. He is a 3-star prospect ranked as the No. 5 quarterback from California, No. 16 quarterback in the country and No. 338 player overall, per Scout.com.
In 2016, when Scout.com first offered a report on White's potential, it was very promising about his future: "He's solid mechanically, very accurate with all his throws, has good pocket mobility and is a very tough kid."
The biggest concern for White right now is size, particularly weight. He entered his senior season rail thin at 185 pounds on a 6'2" frame. College defenders don't even have to hit him square to break him in half right now.
But as long as White is working with the right coaching staff that can get him on a training regimen to add mass without losing any of the traits that make him such a gifted quarterback, he will be terrific very soon.
Conventional wisdom with prized recruits is to expect instant results because it's hard to tell a fanbase that it needs to wait before seeing the fruits of a coaching staff's labor.
White may surprise everyone by getting his body better conditioned to handle the rigors of college football right out of the gate, but even if it takes a year before he's starting, it will be worth it because there aren't many quarterbacks with his raw physical gifts.
