04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Jets' picks: Round 7/244-Jordan White, WR, 6-0, 215, Western Michigan...Sixth-year senior will be 24 in June but set MAC record with 1,911 yards receiving last year. - The Sports Xchange

04/19/2012 - Jordan White doesn't like the term "swagger." It's an overused word in sports today, he says. That doesn't mean he doesn't have swagger. He just likes to call it confidence. The NFL Draft begins a week from tonight, and White is sure he'll hear his name called over the three days. He's also certain he belongs with Justin Blackmon, Michael Floyd, Kendall Wright and Stephen Hill - the top wide receivers expected to be drafted several rounds earlier. "I'm one of the best route runners out there, one of the quickest guys for my size," said White, a North Ridgeville graduate. "I run just as fast as I run the 40 in and out of my route. I do think I'm one of the best out there." The numbers support him. White led the nation with 140 catches and 1,911 receiving yards in 2011 while scoring 17 touchdowns. He set Mid-American Conference records for receiving yards in a career (4,187) and season (1,911) and tied with 306 catches. He broke Western Michigan records with 265 yards on 13 catches in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl against Purdue, including a spectacular one-hander, and is the school's career and season leader in receptions, receiving yards and 100-yard games. "It's not like he's catching these balls against teams that aren't very good. Look at the catches against BCS schools. Michigan couldn't cover him," Western Michigan coach Bill Cubit said, referring to 12 catches for 119 yards against the Wolverines. "Illinois was the same way, UConn, Purdue. "This kid produced since he's been here. Somebody's going to get real lucky with the kid. The other teams didn't figure it out." - Scott Petrak, Chronicle-Telegram

03/20/2012 - With the 2012 NFL Draft nearly a month away, a handful of former Western Michigan University football players were in Kalamazoo on Tuesday to prove that they belong on a team's roster going into next season. WMU's Pro Day, which is held every offseason, acts as a showcase for players to complete NFL Combine-style tasks, such as the 40 yard dash, vertical jump and bench press. Among those featured at this year's Pro Day were wide receiver Jordan White, defensive tackle Drew Nowak and kicker John Potter. One of the biggest improvements that White made during Pro Day was on his 40 yard dash time, which he dropped to a sub-4.60 mark. White said that his game most emulates former NFL receiver Derrick Mason, who White considers to be "one of the most underrated wide receivers in the NFL." White said that the biggest thing he can bring to an organization is his football IQ. "My knowledge of the game is far beyond a lot of players in the draft," he said. "The emphasis that I've placed on it has made me watch a lot more tape and realize that it's a lot more mental." With five new wide receivers entering the program next season, White said that Bronco fans will have a lot to look forward to in the future. "These guys are going to be unstoppable as a unit," he said. - Matt Buck, Western Herald

03/14/2012 - The Western Michigan football program opened its facility to 12 National Football League scouts on Tuesday for its annual Pro Day. Representatives from the Buffalo Bills, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Arizona Cardinals, San Diego Chargers, Indianapolis Colts, N.Y. Jets, N.Y. Giants, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints and Tennessee Titans arrived at the Bill Brown Alumni Football Center to evaluate a group of 10 former Broncos. Jordan White, who also participated in the NFL Scouting Combine at the end of February was measured at an even 6'0" and 213 pounds. He only ran the shuttle, 3-cone drill and 40-yard dash on Tuesday, while also running routes and catching passes from former WMU QB Jeff Welsh. Welsh currently plays professionally overseas. White shaved time off his NFL Combine 40-yard dash with two unofficial times clocking in at 4.57 and 4.60. Drew Nowak's best unofficial 40-yard dash time was 5.16 seconds. In the weight room, Anthony Parker hoisted 225 lbs., a Pro Day high 23 times, while tight end Dallas Walker had the second most with 19. Dervon Wallace had the best vertical jump at 36.5 inches, while Aaron Winchester impressed with 16 reps on the bench. Armer and Potter conducted their positional drills on in Waldo Stadium, but both also participated in many of the weight room drills as well (vertical, broad jump, bench). As Potter stated after the Pro Day, not many specialists do those drills so hopefully it set them apart. White was seen chatting with multiple teams' scouts and the word is most of the conversation had to do with his personality off the field and away from the game. Nowak said he felt he performed adequately but knows there is more work to be done between now and the end of April. - WMU football

03/14/2012 - Jordan White finally had a chance to take off his shiny gold shoes and stretch his sore arms in the soothing sunlight Tuesday afternoon at Waldo Stadium. The former Western Michigan University star wide receiver had just completed his Pro Day along with eight other former Broncos and he could finally relax as his television interviews were done with just a few writers waiting for his attention. "I think I did good. Did I look good?" White jokingly asked. "I thought I did pretty good. Everybody was like, ???Oh, you catch the ball away from your body and you run good routes.' I play receiver and that's what you're supposed to do. I was happy with everything more than just one thing." Maybe the most important thing White did Tuesday at WMU's Seelye Athletic Center was shave a few hundredths of a second off of his 40-yard dash time. He unofficially clocked a time of 4.60 seconds, which beat his time of 4.69 at the NFL Combine last month in Indianapolis. "It made me feel a little better," White said of his 40 time. "Obviously, I wasn't excited about the 40 after (the combine), but I look back on all the people who didn't run fast times are successful." In a lot of NFL eyes, White is not being drafted for his speed, but rather for his hands, which almost never drop a pass in his area. He looked very sharp running routes and catching balls outside of his comfort zone. - David Drew, Michigan Live

02/22/2012 - Jordan White will be the fourth wide receiver in Western Michigan football history to participate in the National Football League Combine when he heads to Indianapolis this week. Once White touches down in Indy on Thursday, Feb. 23, it will be go time. The Mid-American Conference's all-time leader in receiving yards (4,187) and receptions (306) registers and then goes through hospital pre-exams and x-rays, orientation and interviews, all on the first day. White, who will participate in either Group #4 or #5, is the sixth Bronco of the Bill Cubit era to earn an invitation to the NFL Combine, joining former teammates James Blair, Louis Delmas and Tim Hiller. White joins Allan Boyko, Steve Neal and Greg Jennings as the lone WRs to earn a spot in the event in program history. He is the 20th Bronco overall to earn a spot with 68.4 of those invited hearing their name on draft weekend. - Western Michigan football

White becomes only the second Bronco in program history to earn a spot on the AFCA All-America Team, joining Matt Meares who accomplished the feat as a center in 1982. The Cleveland, Ohio, native leads FBS in all receiving categories except TDs and bested his 2010 performance with 1,646 yds, 127 receptions and 16 TDs in 2011. White holds all but three receiving records at WMU and needs just 110 yards to break the Mid-American Conference career receiving yards record. - Western Michigan football

11/25/2011 - Tyler Van Tubbergen threw six touchdown passes and ran for another score as Western Michigan routed Akron 68-19 on Friday. The Broncos (7-5, 5-3 Mid-American) led 10-5 early in the second quarter. But Dervon Wallace's 56-yard run set up Van Tubbergen's 9-yard TD pass to Chleb Ravenell, and began a streak of eight Western Michigan touchdowns without any Akron points. Van Tubbergen was 19 for 21 for 252 yards. He threw two TD passes apiece to Jordan White-who had 138 yards receiving-and one each to Ravenell, Eric Monette, Dallas Walker and Matt Cutler. He also scored on an 8-yard run and finished with 60 yards rushing. Receiver Robert Arnheim also threw a touchdown pass to Ravenell. It was 66-5 before Akron finally scored again, on Mike Perish's 2-yard run midway through the third quarter. The Zips (1-11, 0-8) lost three fumbles during the Broncos' eight-TD spree. - AP Sports

11/16/2011 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: Western Michigan at Miami, Nov. 16 - The Broncos haven't played at Yager Stadium since 2001 and haven't won in Oxford, Ohio, since 1994. KEYS TO THE GAME: Western Michigan has proven it can score with the best MAC teams, but can it make stops when it counts? That's an area in which the Broncos have failed in recent games. PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Jordan White caught 16 passes, tying a school record, against Toledo. He also reached 111 catches for the season, breaking the school record of 104. White also broke the school-record for career receiving yards with 3,678. The old mark was 3,599 by Steve Neal. - The Sports Xchange

11/14/2011 - WEEK 11 MAC WEST DIVISION CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Western Michigan WR Jordan White: Senior wide receiver Jordan White (Cleveland, Ohio) recorded the most receiving yards in a game (238) in the nation last week and the sixth most in FBS this season in a 66-63 loss at Toledo. White became Western Michigan's career receiving yards leader (3,678) as well as single-season receptions (111) and receiving yards (1,402) king. It was the third time in program history a Western Michigan receiver had over 200 yards receiving in a game and the first since Greg Jennings accomplished the feat in five overtimes in 2005. His 16 receptions also matched a program mark and his 18th 100-yard receiving game is more than any other Bronco receiver in program history. - MAC football

11/08/2011 - Senior WR Jordan White, the nation's leading pass-catcher, put on quite a show Oct. 29 against Ball State in front of one of the program's all-time best wideouts. With Greg Jennings in attendance, White caught nine passes for 172 yards and became the school's all-time leader in catches with 261. - The Sports Xchange

11/08/2011 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: Western Michigan at Toledo, Nov. 8 It's a long shot for sure, but the Broncos absolutely must beat Toledo to keep the slightest of slight hopes alive to share in the MAC West championship. KEYS TO THE GAME: This game could be something of a shootout between two of the top offenses in the Mid-American Conference. Toledo is second in the league in scoring and third in total offense, and Western Michigan is fourth in both categories. The two leading receivers in the conference Jordan White of Western Michigan and Eric Page of Toledo will be on the field. They have combined for 161 catches, and Page is coming off a five-touchdown game. PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Jordan White on Oct. 29 became the all-time Western Michigan leader with 261 pass receptions. He caught nine passes for 172 yards and two touchdowns. White also joined Greg Jennings and Steve Neal as the only players in school history with two 1,000-yard receiving seasons. - The Sports Xchange

10/31/2011 - WEEK 9 MAC WEST DIVISION OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Western Michigan WR Jordan White: Senior wide receiver Jordan White (Cleveland, Ohio) became Western Michigan's career receptions leader in a 45-35 win over Ball State with nine catches for 172 yards and two touchdowns. White holds the record with 261 career receptions and is over 1,000 yards for the season (1,164), making him only the third Bronco receiver to have back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in program history (Greg Jennings, Steve Neal). White now ranks seventh in career receptions (261), 10th in career receiving yards (3,440) and 16th in career receiving TDs (24) in MAC history. His 17th 100-yard receiving games also tied Greg Jennings for the career record. - MAC football

Then, midway through the second, he scored on a trick play-a 61-yard pass from fellow receiver Robert Arnheim, who had scored on the Broncos' previous possession. The wild second quarter saw seven touchdowns, four by the Broncos. Keith Wenning tallied 335 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions for the Cardinals (5-4, 3-2).

10/10/2011 - WEEK 6 MAC WEST DIVISION OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Western Michigan WR Jordan White: Senior wide receiver Jordan White (Cleveland, Ohio) recorded his fourth-straight game with 10 or more catches and over 100 yards with 12 receptions and 156 yards in Western Michigan's 45-21 win over Bowling Green.

White also became only the fourth Western Michigan receiver to post 3,000 yards in a career, now with 3,100.

He leads the MAC in receiving yards per game and receptions per game, ranking third in the country in each category. - MAC football

09/22/2011 - KEEP AN EYE ON: WR Jordan White could be the most feared wideout in the Mid-American Conference. Besides catching a career-high 13 passes for 177 yards and two touchdowns, he also returned a punt for 64 yards to set up a touchdown in the first half. QUOTE TO NOTE: "I've been here for five years, and I haven't beaten them. I came back for a sixth season for one reason, to beat Central." - Western Michigan WR Jordan White on his reaction to the Broncos' 44-14 crushing of arch-rival Central Michigan. - The Sports Xchange

09/22/2011 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: Western Michigan at Illinois, Sept. 24 - This is the second Big Ten opponent for the Broncos, who played at Michigan to open the season. The big concern in these kinds of games is to remain injury-free. The last time the Broncos played the Illini, they lost three starters to injury. KEYS TO THE GAME: Ball security was a major issue for Broncos QB Alex Carder last week. He tossed an interception and fumbled three times, losing one in the end zone. This is an area the Broncos want to - and need to - correct before it becomes a big issue. PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Jordan White - The senior is one of the most feared wideouts in the Mid-American Conference. Besides catching a career-high 13 passes for 177 yards and two touchdowns against Central Michigan, he also returned a punt for 64 yards to set up a touchdown in the first half. - The Sports Xchange

09/19/2011 - WEEK 3 MAC WEST DIVISION OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Western Michigan WR Jordan White: Senior wide receiver Jordan White (Cleveland, Ohio) had his second double-digit reception day of the season, hauling in 13 catches for a season high 177 yards in Western Michigan's 44-14 win over Central Michigan. White had a pair of touchdowns to go along with a career long 64-yard punt return. White had a career best 241 all-purpose yards against Central Michigan. With the effort, White moved into fourth on the all-time receptions list at Western Michigan with 195. He also moved into third on the career list for 100-yard receiving games with his 13th. - MAC football

09/14/2011 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: Central Michigan at Western Michigan, Sept. 17 The arch rivals have played 79 times, and this is the first time they have played each other to open their Mid-American Conference schedules since 1983. KEYS TO THE GAME: Mistakes have plagued Western Michigan in its losses to the Chippewas the previous five games. Last year, it looked like the Broncos were poised to win in the final moment, but Brian Fields fumbled near the goal line to prevent a go-ahead touchdown. Western Michigan clearly has to get over a mental hurdle it has showed in recent games of the series. PLAYERS TO WATCH: PR Jordan White and KR Dervon Wallace - White ran back two punts for 35 yards Sept. 10 against Nicholls, and Wallace returned a kickoff for 54 yards. - The Sports Xchange

09/10/2011 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: Nicholls at Western Michigan, Sept. 10 - The game is the home opener for the Broncos. The contest is CommUniverCity night at Waldo Stadium, and it usually draws among the biggest home crowds of the season. The Broncos have a 5-1 record under coach Bill Cubit in home openers. KEYS TO THE GAME: Whatever success Western Michigan attains this season likely will come from a balanced attack on offense. The Broncos, behind QB Alex Carder, can be prolific in the passing game, but they showed welcome signs of life in the running game Sept. 3 at Michigan. The Broncos figure to have too much firepower for Nicholls to control. PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Jordan White topped the 1,000-yard mark in receiving yards last year as the player opposite Juan Nunez, another 1,000-yard receiver. With Nunez gone this season, questions were posed about whether White could be as good without him. White answered the questions by catching 12 passes for 119 yards in less than three quarters of action in the opener against Michigan. - The Sports Xchange

09/03/2011 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: Western Michigan at Michigan, Sept. 3 - The Wolverines figure to be highly amped with Brady Hoke making his debut as the new coach. The Broncos must find a way to bring the same kind of energy. KEYS TO THE GAME: The Broncos have difference-makers on offense in QB Alex Carder and TB Tevin Drake. But they'll only be as good as the offensive line allows them to be against a defense that will demand good play by its front seven. PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Jordan White - Some feel he could become a truly great receiver in the mold of former Broncos Greg Jennings and Jamarko Simmons. White showed last year that he was capable with 94 catches for 1,378 yards. But without Juan Nunez on the other side of the field this year, White likely must prove his value against more double coverage. - The Sports Xchange

08/28/2011 - Depending upon whom you ask, Western Michigan either is not positioned to win the Mid-American Conference or it should be among the favorites to win the title. The Broncos have the one thing most teams covet: A quarterback (Alex Carder) capable of leading a team to a championship. Yet their performance in recent years opens questions about their ability to actually be good enough to be the best. Western Michigan has a perplexing history. In 2007, it was the favorite to win the MAC championship. Instead, the Broncos limped to a 5-7 record. One thing is certain. The Broncos this season are viewed as a team capable of making a run at the top, but they have plenty of skeptics based on past results. And they were picked to finish third in the West Division in the league's media poll. Seventh-year WMU coach Bill Cubit knows his team might be viewed with a raised eyebrow. "I think we're good," he told the Kalamazoo (Mich.) Gazette. "I think people respect us, but I don't think they fear us. That's one thing we want." QUOTE TO NOTE: "I've been here six years and still haven't had a (championship) ring and still haven't beaten Central. It's a problem for me and it's been on my mind a lot. ... I've probably felt more dislike for Central this past year than any year I've been here." WMU senior WR Jordan White telling the Kalamazoo (Mich.) Gazette about his desire to beat arch-rival Central Michigan and go on to win the MAC title. - The Sports Xchange

07/26/2011 - Western Michigan's record-setting wide receiver Jordan White was granted a sixth year of eligibility from the NCAA, making the 2011 campaign his final season of college football. White, who earned First Team All-MAC in 2010, broke the school's single-season record for receiving yards (1,378) and 100-yard games (7) last year. He also received honorable mention for Sports Illustrated All-America. Last year, White finished the year with a career-best 94 receptions, which ranked second in the MAC, and 114.8 yards per game, best in the conference, and a career-high 10 touchdowns. The Cleveland, Ohio, native lost two full seasons to injury. He missed the entire 2006 season, his freshman year, after injuring his knee four days into fall camp. White sat out the entire 2008 season with a knee injury as well. White enters the 2011 season ranked among many Western Michigan career leaders, including: fifth in career receptions (166), sixth in career receiving yards (2,276), ninth in touchdown receptions (15) and fourth in 100-yard receiving games (11). - MAC football

07/09/2011 - 2011 BILETNIKOFF AWARD PRESEASON WATCH LIST: Jordan White, Western Michigan, has been selected one of 75 wide receivers from around the nation named to the Biletnikoff Award preseason watch list for the 2011 college football season. The Biletnikoff Award is named after former Florida State and Oakland Raiders receiver Fred Biletnikoff and goes to the top receiver in college football. White, who was granted a sixth year by the NCAA, enters his final season in the Brown & Gold with 2,276 receiving yards, 166, catches and 15 career receiving TDs, all ranking in the top 10 in each category. Last season he set new marks in receiving yards in a season (1,378) and 100-yard receiving games in a season (7) en route to earning First Team All-Mid-American Conference and receiving honorable mention for All-America by Sports Illustrated. - Western Michigan football
