WVU football: White brothers continue to represent program

MORGANTOWN, WV - OCTOBER 22: Ka'Raun White /

The WVU football program won’t feel the same without a White brother on the team. Kyzir, Ka’Raun and of, course, Kevin are now out of West Virginia.

Kevin was a first-round draft pick of the Chicago Bears and the younger White brothers are now looking to reach the professional ranks themselves.

At the WVU football team’s Pro Day in Morgantown, Kevin came to town to watch his younger brothers in action. Having a key mentor like a brother is a great thing in life and the younger White brothers have that guiding light on the football field, too.

The brothers will remain together in the Mountain State a little later for a special autograph session in Teays Valley on Saturday. All three players had special careers with the Mountaineers and they offered their individual talents in a unique way. This event is also unique because the three brothers will be together to meet WVU football fans for the final time in a while.

At West Virginia for just two seasons, Kevin White had 144 receptions for 1,954 yards according to WVUstats.com. He also added 15 touchdowns and had a long reception of 68 yards.

Also a wide receiver, Ka’Raun White had 124 receptions for 1,862 yards in three seasons according to WVUstats.com. Ka’Raun wasn’t as long or lanky as Kevin, but he was a confident catcher and a speedy wideout who knew how to get open.

Kyzir was a safety who made a big impact as a senior. He played two years with the WVU football team and had 152 tackles. His three career interceptions all came as a senior. He is said to be West Virginia’s best shot at a high pick in the NFL Draft.

Kevin led a nice pipeline from Lackawanna Community College to Morgantown. The younger two White brothers made the right decision to follow their older brother. They were all stars at West Virginia and they all have a bright future on the football field.
