Tennessee wide receiver Squirrel White was the fastest player in Week 10 college football action this past weekend.

According to Reel Analytics on X, White reached 21.7 miles per hour during his touchdown reception against UConn during the second quarter of the game inside Neyland Stadium.

The video from Reel Analytics shows that White was moving between 18 and 19 MPH when he caught the ball across the middle of the field and got above the 21 MPH mark as he turned upfield and ran along the sideline past two UConn defenders.

White shares the title of Week 10’s fastest college football player with Georgia Tech wide receiver Eric Singleton as both receivers reached a max speed of 21.7 MPH during an in-game contest over the weekend.

The 5-foot-10 sophomore has been bursting with speed since arriving in Knoxville as a freshman during the 2022 season.

In a preseason press conference during the 2022 season, White, a freshman at the time, revealed that he had been clocked going 23.6 MPH with the catapult measurement tools.

White hauled in 30 receptions for 481 yards and two touchdowns during his freshman campaign in the 2022 season. While White was already factored into being one of Tennessee’s star receivers this season, the mid-season injury to Bru McCoy has only upped White’s value with the trust that he has with quarterback Joe Milton III.

White has 46 receptions and 557 yards with two touchdowns through the first nine games of the 2023 season and leads the Vols’ receiving core in receptions and yards.

Tennessee is looking for Squirrel White to break loose again this Saturday in a pivotal SEC East matchup against Missouri this Saturday in Columbia.

No. 14 Missouri will host No. 13 Tennessee and Squirrel White at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
