Oklahoma junior Max White has been named the most recent Big 12 Player of the Week.
White is a 6-1 utility player for the Sooners and a graduate of Durant High School. White has multi-hit performances in each of his last seven contests and hit .444 in four games last week (8-for-18) with nine RBI off two doubles and his second homer of the year.
In last week’s four games, White slugged .722 with 13 total bases while scoring four runs. The week ended as OU recorded a two-game sweep at Kansas (finale rained out) with a career-high five RBI from White, including a three-run homer to clinch the series in the fifth inning. He singled in two runs during OU’s five-run ninth inning.
All five of White’s RBI in the series finale came with two outs on the board and 23 of his team-leading 43 RBI have come in that situation. White also had two hits in the previous three games during the week against Kansas, Dallas Baptist and Oklahoma State.
In the last seven games, White is hitting 16-for-30 (.533) with two homers, three doubles, eight runs, 13 RBI, and an .833 slugging percentage.
On the season, White ranks third in the Big 12 with 43 RBI (ties career high) and fourth in both hits (60) and batting average (.361). He also ranks second in the league in multi-hit games (20) and multi-RBI games (14).
