The University of South Florida men’s basketball team received some depth on the inside when Kore White, a transfer from Florida Atlantic University, gave a verbal commitment to the Bulls.

White (6-foot-8, 245 pounds) averaged 7.7 points and 4.5 rebounds last season for the Owls. He played his freshman season at Marshall University before a transfer to FAU. White is permitted to transfer again because of the NCAA’s graduate exception rule. White is completing his bachelor’s degree at FAU and will attend graduate school at USF, where he has one season of eligibility.

Coach Stan Heath’s Bulls were 22-14 last season and finished one victory short of the NCAA tournament’s Sweet 16. They are losing Augustus Gilchrist and Ron Anderson Jr. on the inside. White will bolster USF’s inside presence, which includes senior Toarlyn Fitzpatrick, junior-college center Waverly Austin, freshman Jordan Omogbehin and incoming freshman Zach LeDay.

White attended Fort Lauderdale Dillard High School, where he helped it to a 29-2 record and the Class 5A state title as a senior.
