Get to know: Arkansas QB target Walker White

Little Rock Christian's Walker White (4) throws a pass during the first quarter on Friday, Sept. 24, 2021, in Little Rock.

ESPN 4-star quarterback Walker White isn’t fond of spiders or people who don’t give maximum effort but is big fan of Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen. 

White, 6-4, 215 pounds, of Little Rock Christian, has offers from Arkansas, Florida, LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Wisconsin, TCU, Missouri, Virginia and other schools. Alabama is showing strong interest. 

ESPN also rates him the No. 7 dual-threat quarterback and the No. 195 overall prospect in the nation for the 2024 class. 

He and his parents last visited Fayetteville for a prospect camp in June. He rushed 92 times for 487 yards and 5 touchdowns, and completed 129 of 238 passes for 2,010 yards and 23 touchdowns as a sophomore.

White recorded 4.55 seconds in the 40-yard dash along with a 35.4-inch vertical jump and a broad jump of 10 feet, 4 inches. He was named the MVP of an Ole Miss summer camp.

My favorite thing about play quarterback: Is knowing that I have such a huge role in how the game goes. I touch the ball every play. If I do good, the team does. 

Funniest football moment: Some of the funniest football moments aren’t really made in games but practice and screwing around with the team. That includes coaches dancing in the locker room or failed celebrations in practice. One time I tried doing a back flip after this competition we did with the coaches and I totally failed and didn’t rotate around and I like twisted in the air and landed on my side. I played it off well, though. But mostly the conversations with your buddies or coaches the locker room or on the field is where the memories are made. 

If I couldn't play football, I would want to star in: Serving in my church a lot more. I do a little right now, but I’d love to help out the church a lot more. 

My mom is always on me to: Hang my clothes up, or she wants me to do a reel with her. 

My two pet peeves: When people don’t give full effort. And the second is when people don’t give full effort. That’s really it. 

If I could meet a famous person: It’d be Jesus Christ. I would love to be in the presence of my savior. 

My hidden talent is: I do tap dance

My favorite fast food chain is: Raising Canes, because their chicken is so tender and crispy

I will never eat: Mushrooms 

Favorite junk food is: Honey Buns 

My favorite sweet-tooth craving is: Twix. 

Strangest thing I’ve ever eaten: A leaf 

My all time celebrity crush is: Livvy Dunne 

If I could live anywhere: I’d live anywhere in the South 

I’m terrified of: Spiders. Hate them.

Dog or cats: I’m a dog person, because dogs are just better. Dogs are better than humans, and that’s not a debate. Dogs are great. I love my German Shepherd.

Do you think aliens exist: I have no reason to believe aliens don’t exist. It’d be kind of cool if they did. 

I get emotional when: Something good or bad happens to a person I love 

Which do you prefer Twitter, Instagram or Tik Tok: Instagram. 

Best advice I’ve received is: Be cocky on the inside but stay humble on the outside. Being humble and not boasting can get me a lot of respect. 

My role model: Josh Allen. I model myself after his type of play. I really love watching him play ball.

Three words to describe me: Resilient, hard working and caring 

People would be surprised that I: Take tap class.
