White is a college teammate of right-hander Jake Stinnett, the Cubs' second-round pick, at Maryland, which on Saturday won its first game in the NCAA Super Regionals against Virginia. White went 3-for-5 with two runs scored, while Stinnett earned the win, allowing three runs (two earned) in six innings.
This season at Maryland, the speedy center fielder is hitting .284/.366/.396 with 24 stolen bases in 29 attempts.
White's father, Brian, played one year of rookie ball in the Cubs' organization in 1983.
