Jerry Stackhouse is, once again, trying to reach into his bag of tricks as he continues to pursue Arizona State transfer Romello White. The 6’8 center announced he was putting his name in the transfer portal a couple weeks ago.
The Dore Report dove into his decision and the Vanderbilt rumors here:
Immediately, many analysts around the country thought of Vanderbilt as one of his main targets due to his relationship with Stackhouse. Jerry coached White in his AAU days and likely wants to play closer to home in Suwanee, GA. White has now picked up one crystal all, which is 100% Vanderbilt, per 247’s Brooks Hansen.
Meanwhile, according to Jeff Goodman, White has received interest from around 15 schools including the Commodores and Coach Stackhouse.
VandySports.com may have just hinted that White could be on his way to Nashville, but we shall wait and see if that is the truth. The grad transfer will have one year of eligibility remaining and will hopefully be a force in the post alongside Clevon Brown for the Commodores.
At this point, Romello has likely been placed in a waiting game with the Vanderbilt admissions office. The question becomes, does that affect White’s ultimate decision to come to Nashville? We already know Vanderbilt is targeting him but, at this point who knows what’s going on within the University and Romello. We simply have to wait and see.
If White decides to commit to Vanderbilt, he will snatch the final scholarship spot for the 2020-21 season. In the end, hopefully things work out on both sides so we can see Romello in the black and gold. Meanwhile, Commodore Nation intensely waits for him to make his announcement.
