WKU FOOTBALL | Mike White Invited to NFL Scouting Combine

01/03/2018 12:17 PM

Former WKU quarterback Mike White has received an invitation to the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, In.

The NFL Scouting Combine will take place from March 2 through March 5.

“Mike has all the tools to be able to succeed at the next level, and this will be a great platform to highlight his skill at the position in front of NFL coaches and executives,” said WKU head coach Mike Sanford in a media release.

White becomes the second consecutive Hilltopper starting quarterback to attend the NFL Scouting Combine, as former QB Brandon Doughty attended the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine.

White led the Hilltoppers to the 2016 Conference USA Championship.

During his time at Western Kentucky, he threw for 8,540 yards and 63 touchdowns.
