In his final game as a Mountaineer, Kyzir White showed a gritty and tough performance that personified not only his time and legacy in Morgantown, but that of the entire White family. Kevin White, his older brother put up exceptional numbers and made highlight worthy catches during his senior year before becoming a first round draft pick of the Chicago Bears. Ka’Raun White, a senior this year with Kyzir, had 978 yards receiving and eleven touchdowns, one of which was WVU’s lone touchdown in the match up against Utah.
In the bowl game against the Utes, Kyzir White showed why he is likely an NFL draft pick this spring. He led the team with thirteen tackles, seven of which were solo. Additionally, he recorded a sack and 1.5 tackles for loss. On the season he recorded 94 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss and three interceptions. That placed him second on the team in tackles, only behind fellow senior Al-Rasheed Benton. While the game certainly didn’t have the outcome everyone had hoped for, Kyzir White continued the family’s strong legacy in Morgantown. The memory of their play on the field will be one that Mountaineer fans remember for generations, which is maybe long enough for one of the three brothers to send a son to Morgantown.
