2013 DT Webb's Recruitment Building Steam

2013 DT Webb's Recruitment Building Steam

Timber Creek (Erial, N.J.) 2013 defensive tackle Greg Webb is shaping up to be one of the top recruits in New Jersey next year. Webb recently picked up his seventh and eighth verbal scholarship offers and has taken two unofficial visits since the start of the college football season.

Penn State and N.C. State became the seventh and eighth verbal scholarship offers from Greg Webb this summer, but the top 2013 defensive tackle continues to have Rutgers high on his radar.

Teammates at Timber Creek (Erial, N.J.) with middle linebacker Quanzell Lambert and defensive end Dajaun Drennon, Webb said he has a strong relationship with Rutgers, along with the rest of his high-school team.

Webb visited Rutgers for the opener against N.C. Central and raved about what he saw.

"It was real fun," Webb said. "All three of us had a great time watching the home-state school."

"It thought it was a really fun crowd. I thought the crowd was really strong once they started getting into the game. I thought the Rutgers team looked good and seeing them in a full stadium with all the fans was really exciting."

Specifically, Webb said he liked what he saw from his recruiting coach, Phil Galiano and his defensive line. Against N.C. Central, the Rutgers defensive line totaled nine sacks and 15 TFLs.

"I think Coach Galiano had those guys looking pretty good out there, especially [Justin] Francis and [Scott] Vallone and Michael Larrow," Webb said. "They were using their hands really well and attacking the quarterback. There is some buzz at Timber Creek about Rutgers. They check in on us a lot and are recruiting a lot of us, plus it's the home-state school. I really like Rutgers."

After visiting Rutgers and leading Timber Creek to its first win of the season, Webb went to State College, Pa., the next weekend to see Penn State's loss to Alabama.

Penn State offered Webb over the summer and last Saturday was his first chance to visit the campus from that perspective.

"Penn State and N.C. State, those were two big ones to get," Webb said. "It's exciting for all these schools to be talking to me, but I have to stay focused, especially now that the season is starting."

Webb said that he may visit for more college games this year, but it depends on his team's schedule. He also said Rutgers and Penn State stand out, but it is still very early in the process.

Webb plays defensive tackle for Timber Creek and began working as a left tackle this season. Playing left tackle, however, is "definitely not" something he is interested in playing at the next level.
