SPRINGHILL — North Webster football star Devin White will no longer be participating in the 2016 Under Armour All-America Game in January due to an “ongoing legal situation,” game officials said.
White, 17, along with teammate Keuntra Gipson, 18, both of Springhill, were arrested Nov. 20 and charged with misdemeanor carnal knowledge of a juvenile after reportedly having sex with a 14-year-old classmate.
“Devin White will no longer be participating in the 2016 Under Armour All-America Game due to his ongoing legal situation,” Steve Flaherty, communications manager for Intersport said in an email to the Press-Herald.
Wednesday, White tweeted “Crazy that my dream & goal got took from me, worked so hard for it but still want to thank @AllAmericaGame @UAFootball for the opportunity.”
Despite the ongoing legal battle, it hasn’t affected his recruitment. Arkansas’ Bret Bielema and staff have made visits with White in Springhill, as well as LSU head coach Les Miles this week.
White has said he will make his intentions known on National Signing Day in February.
