2013 Boo Williams Invitational

Yet another lefty (four total) makes the all-tournament team. White, ranked No. 6 in the Full Court Fresh 50 and another likely high school All-American selection, showed a solid ability to finish in the key during the event which was an improvement from last spring when she did not finish her shots so consistently as this year.  You could call her a quiet double-double as she hits the boards hard.  If anything, she probably should have gotten more touches in the loss versus the NJ Demons. - Bob Corwin

2012 Super Saturday Jamboree, NC

The game is starting to get slower for White.  She dominated the paint during the jamboree and also looked good getting up and down the floor. Her mid-range jumper was clicking and now she is putting the ball on the floor with more confidence. It will be tough for Providence Day this year because they graduated a strong guard class and the current roster needs development to get back to the state championship level. If opponents have guards that can apply pressure it will negate the talents of Miss White. - Derek McKeiver

White is a lefty with a good size body that takes up space.  She has a consistent 16 foot jumper.  She favors the left block and protects the left shoulder.  Jatari has crafty footwork in the paint- using single double and triple moves (mostly originating from the right foot pivot).  She has a soft touch around to rim- she plays low to high allowing her to absorb contact.  White does a very good job of getting a piece of the paint on her post up.  When she gets bad position, White does a nice job using the slide dribble or step-out face up to re-establish.  Has a Zach Randolph like quality. – Dave Dagostino

2012 U17 USA Basketball Trials

White has gained upper body strength and muscle tone and her footwork has improved signifiantly.  She is a great rebounder and shot blocker with the ability to dominate on both ends of the floor.  - Kelly Kline
