Sac High's Angel-White, Benjamin to ink football letters of intent

Sacramento High football standouts Devin Benjamin and Jalen Angel-White have verbally committed to Idaho State and the University of San Diego, respectively, and will sign letters of intent at a school ceremony 9:10 a.m. on Wednesday in the Mel Lawson Theater.

Angel-White, a strong safety and wide receiver, was the Metro Conference co-Player of the Year and Bee All-Metro first team defensive back this season. He was twice voted team captain by his teammates and made All-Metro Conference first team as a sophomore and junior at linebacker.

This season Angel-White led the Dragons in receptions with 62 for 985 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also had five interceptions and four fumble recoveries.

As a junior, he had 22 receptions for 317 yards and 323 yards rushing and three touchdowns on 37 carries and 57 tackles, two fumble recoveries and an interception. Angel-White led the team in tackles as a sophomore with 67.

The 6-foot-3 Benjamin was a two-time All-Metro Conference wide receiver who had 61 catches for 1,159 yards and 13 touchdowns during his two-year varsity career. As a senior, he also had two interceptions and returned a punt for a touchdown.

They helped coach Paul Doherty's Dragons to a combined 13-9 record and two playoff appearances.
