Royce White, an outstanding offensive lineman for the Troup Tigers, has made his choice.

During a ceremony on Thursday night at Coach’s Bar and Grill in West Point, White announced that he plans on signing with The University of Memphis.

“I talked to all the coaches, and every single person I talked to, I clicked with right away,” White said. “I just knew. It felt like home.”

White can make it official during the early-signing period in December.

Before that, White will try to help the Troup football team accomplish some big things this fall.

White will be the anchor of an offensive line that returns four starters.
