Auburn football: Ryan White deftly moves to safety, does 'outstanding job' against Texas A&M

Ryan White wasn’t even afforded a day of practice. When Josh Holsey got injured on the final play of Auburn’s practice last Thursday, the coaching staff wasted no time. White would move from his normal cornerback position to Holsey’s boundary safety spot prior to last week’s game against Texas A&M. Though he didn’t start — that designation went to the “other” Ryan, Ryan Smith — White played a majority of the snaps there. That permitted Smith and Jermaine Whitehead the chance to rotate at field safety.
