Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said that redshirt sophomore QB Sean White will start against LSU on Saturday.

Malzahn wouldn't commit to White as the starter after Saturday's loss to Texas A&M. He has decided to stand by his man for the time being, saying, "We feel like he gives us the best chance to win." The 6-foot, 200-pound redshirt sophomore has passed for fewer than 150 yards in two of three games. All three of his touchdown passes came in a Week 2 win over Arkansas State. There is no fantasy intrigue for Saturday, particularly against a staunch LSU defense.

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Sean White completed 17-of-23 passes for 244 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 51-14 win over Arkansas State.

In a moment of inspired madness, Auburn HC Gus Malzahn played just one quarterback against Arkansas State. A sharp contrast to the "playing three of them" strategy implemented in last weekend's loss to Clemson. White responded well enough, throwing two touchdown passes in the second quarter and wrapping up with one more in the third quarter. Up next on the docket, a home showdown with Texas A&M. The 6-foot, 200-pound White holds little fantasy value at this juncture.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn indicated that redshirt sophomore QB Sean White will start moving forward.

Malzahn was all over the map in his use of quarterbacks against Clemson on Saturday, to the point where even some of his players weren't quite sure of the logic behind his rotation of White (whom he had named starter at the end of camp), Jeremy Johnson and John Franklin III. If Malzahn is to be believed, Auburn will roll with White (exclusively) in the wars to come. During Saturday's loss, the 6-foot, 200-pounder completed 10-of-21 passes for 140 yards and an interception. In terms of fantasy impact, avoid avoid avoid.

Several Auburn players expressed confusion as to why HC Gus Malzahn rotated through three quarterbacks against Clemson on Saturday.

Malzahn named Sean White the starter near the end of August and White did, indeed, start against Clemson. For one series. John Franklin III then proceeded to enter the game, followed by Jeremy Johnson just one series after that. Veterans Montravius Adams and Josh Holsey both came away flummoxed by the constant switches, while sophomore RB Chandler Cox said, "He talked about Sean and Sean was our guy." The three quarterbacks combined for a 15-of-30, 175-yard passing performance with two interceptions (White and Johnson each threw one). This three-headed monster will do battle against Arkansas State next weekend. There is no fantasy intrigue here on any front.

Auburn named redshirt sophomore QB Sean White the starting quarterback.

This will surprise some folks, as JUCO transfer QB John Franklin III arrived with considerable Nick Marshall-comped hype. Franklin, however, was unable to win the starting job at his JUCO last year and remains extremely raw. White, on the other hand, ended last year as the starter. In all, the 6-foot, 200-pounder completed 83-of-143 passes for 1,167 yards and a 1/4 TD/INT rate in what was a trying year for all parties. noted that consistency in practices is what likely gave White the ultimate nod over Franklin and senior Jeremy Johnson. Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn and White were done no favors by the schedule. Next Saturday, the Tigers open against Clemson.

Auburn redshirt freshman QB Sean White went 8-for-14 for 103 yards and two interceptions in Wednesday's 31-10 thrashing of Memphis in the Birmingham Bowl.

White was given every opportunity to run away with the starting job this season but balked each time. We were expecting Jeremy Johnson to get the call here, but HC Gus Malzahn announced before the game that White would start. That wasn't the best decision, though it didn't matter because Auburn's defense turned into the 1986 Bears for an afternoon (Auburn outgained Memphis 402-205). White's second interception was returned by Reggis Ball 53 yards for touchdown to tie the game at 10-10 late in the second quarter. Malzahn called the bullpen and Johnson came off the bench to run and pass for a touchdown. Even with Johnson graduating, White is far from assured the starting gig in 2016.

Auburn redshirt freshman QB Sean White will start against Memphis in the Birmingham Bowl.

Jeremy Johnson, who opened the season as the starter, played heavily in the last four games and played his best football of the season. White overtook Johnson during the year, with mixed results, but was sidelined with a knee injury. There will be plenty of talk this offseason regarding Auburn's starting job.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said redshirt freshman QB Sean White (knee) has "moved around very well" in pre-bowl practice.

"He moved around well even before the [Christmas] break," Malzahn said, "and then we had four days off right there and he's come back. I'm not going to say he's 100 percent but I think he's close." As to whether White or Jeremy Johnson will start in the Birmingham Bowl against Memphis on December 30, stay tuned. Malzahn refused to tip his hand, merely indicating that both quarterbacks have performed well in practice. Said the coach, "We've not made a decision on who's going to start. You could see both of them. We should have everybody offensively ready to go."
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 04:56:00 PM's Brandon Marcello believes redshirt freshman QB Sean White still has a chance to be the future of Auburn football.

"Some will argue Johnson's time has come and gone. His performance at Texas A&M was admirable and led the Tigers to a 26-10 victory, but White has been the more consistent and electric of the two. The injury bug has kept White on the sideline, but if he can continue to improve as a starter -- and have an explosive performance against Memphis in the Birmingham Bowl -- we may very well be witnessing the beginning of the White era at Auburn," Marcello wrote. The redshirt freshman was beginning to turn a corner, before sustaining an injury to his left knee in the fourth quarter against Arkansas on Oct. 24. The 6-foot, 200-pound White has passed for 1064 yards, with 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions on his 2015 resume.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn says he'll name a starting quarterback for Saturday's game against Alabama by the end of the week.

White and Jeremy Johnson are both practicing. With White sidelined again last week, Johnson went 13-of-19 for 163 yards with four touchdowns (two rushing) and no interceptions against Idaho. The sledding is going to be a bit tougher against the No. 2 Tide in the Iron Bowl.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn admits redshirt freshman QB Sean White's knee injury may be worse than originally thought.

Malzahn put White into the Georgia game in the third quarter. That was a mistake, as White looked slow and awkward, unable to step into throws. Malzahn was asked why he put White in. "Obviously we didn't do a very good job offensively in the second half," Malzahn said. "Our plan was to play them both (Jeremy Johnson and White). When he got in there, he wasn't 100 percent. We felt like there was an opportunity for things we could do. It didn't work out. When you look back, obviously if we could change some things we probably would." White didn't have an answer when asked how healthy his knee was. Jeremy Johnson is likely to start against Idaho.

Auburn redshirt freshman QB Sean White completed 12-of-29 passes for 258 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Saturday's 27-19 loss to Ole Miss.

Incredibly, the 6-foot, 200-pound redshirt freshman's second quarter touchdown pass to Ricardo Louis was his first touchdown pass of the season (this was his fifth start). That throw was stellar -- and came off a sweet play-action fake that White sold valiantly -- but White reverted to his characteristic struggles after that. It's smart to get the gifted White's feet wet in this rebuilding campaign, but expect the growing pains to continue.

Auburn redshirt freshman QB Sean White is considered a game-time decision to play against Ole Miss.

Former starter and media darling Jeremy Johnson could start in White's place, the quarterback who unseated Johnson in late September. White suffered an undisclosed injury last week against Arkansas during a four overtime contest and finished the game.

Auburn redshirt freshman QB Sean White completed 17-of-25 passes for 255 yards and no interceptions in Thursday's 30-27 win over Kentucky.

Whatever White did during the bye week, he should probably keep doing that. The 6-foot, 200-pound redshirt freshman entered Thursday's game against a solid Kentucky defense having thrown for just 296 yards and an interception over the course of two games since taking over for Jeremy Johnson as Auburn's starting quarterback. On Thursday, though, he repeatedly found Ricardo Louis for nice gains, almost doubling up on his season yardage total in the process. While White didn't throw for a touchdown, this was clearly a step in the right direction. The Tigers head off for a date against Arkansas next week as they attempt to salvage their season.
