“It’s like a home feeling. I love Nebraska,” Webb told Hail Varsity’s Greg Smith about his decision to commit. “When I got on the phone with the coaches it made me feel like home. You don’t meet everybody and feel like you’ve known them for a long time. I feel like I had a relationship with Coach Frost, Coach Chinander and Coach Fisher. I felt like I knew them all for a long time. So I felt like if there was anybody that I would love to play under, it’d be Coach Frost and Chinander with Coach Fisher as my DB coach.”
Webb—who is the son of former NFL defensive back Lardarius Webb—started his high school career at Beauregard High School in Opelika, Alabama. He has since transferred to Jackson Academy in Jackson, Mississippi for his senior year.
Webb stands 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds. Nebraska is recruiting him as a defensive back, although he does have wide receiver experience too. He runs a 4.57 40 yard dash, according to his Hudl profile.
Nebraska was the first Division I program to offer Webb. That offer came on June 26.
Recruit commitments always bring in a number of reactions from current coaches and fans, but Webb’s commitment had a unique congratulations.
Bell played with Webb’s father in Baltimore.
