Khalil White promises sunnier skies are on the Lincoln County horizon @khalilwhiteee @KyHighFootball @KYEXPOSURE @12thSports @LCFB_Recruiting

This type of talent promises to greatly improve Coach Jaggers' fortunes

’25 DE/TE has the frame and length to excel at this and the next level

Khalil White is a ’25 kid whose best football is ahead of him. He is 6’3,” 200-pounds and has a frame to which some good weight can and should be added. We like him on defense but could see him get more snaps this coming year on offense at TE. The Patriots were 4-7 in ’23 but looks to improve significantly on that work slate. Players like White should assist the efforts tremendously.

Hudl Highlights

Lincoln County is a program which has been a tough customer around the 4A classification in previous seasons. Twenty-three (’23) wasn’t its best year but the roster regularly produces talent and head coach, Josh Jaggers, has before shown he knows how to lead programs to success.

He’s a “Jaggers.” We know around the commonwealth the surname “Jaggers” is a name synonymous with regularly guiding teams to the highest levels of Kentucky High School football success.

Any coach will tell you having roster talent is where improvement often commences. Khalil White is a guy Lincoln County will lean on in ’24 to achieve that level of success.

White is 6’3,” 200-pounds of frame with the length suitable to playing on either the offensive or defensive edges. White registered 21-tackles, 1.5-TFLs, 3.5 QB-sacks, an INT, and a FR in ’23. These numbers are not overpowering but do show a penchant for “big plays” numbering prominently among his totals.

Although reporting TE as his primary offensive position, we can’t find where he was targeted in the passing game for the Patriots in ’23. If we are being honest, losing Sawyer Horton to graduation, and the team having to get a new QB ready for play this coming Fall, doesn’t seem to encourage White’s being targeted much in ’24 either.

However, some key pieces will return. The Patriots featured among the most balanced of offensive attacks and that has been a Josh Jaggers staple over his coaching tenure.

We like Khalil White to emerge as a really multi-phase threat in ’24. We believe his time has come. We are confident he has the skills to flourish on both sides of the scrimmage line.
