White has had a unique USFL story so far. DaShaun was a college draft pick, and ended up signing with the Michigan Panthers midseason after they released Santrell Latham. He appeared in four games, totaling six tackles throughout his limited minutes.
DaShaun White was then picked up by the Buffalo Bills, seeing a bit of action in the final preseason game of the year.
Ultimately, White was released as Buffalo cut down to their 53 man roster. After not being picked up on the practice squad, DaShaun now returns to the USFL – where he began his professional career.
DaShaun White certainly has an opportunity to see a larger role in the USFL this year. For the Panthers, there’s a bit of uncertainty surrounding their linebacker core. Frank Ginda is no longer with the team, and has not re-signed yet. There is no guarantee that he comes back to Michigan.
With White re-signing, it helps bolster this defensive unit for Mike Nolan and the Michigan Panthers. DaShaun was an outstanding playmaker at Oklahoma, posting 258 tackles and 5.5 sacks throughout his career there.
His senior season was excellent, as White compiled 90 tackles, two sacks, and two interceptions.
