DT Webb recaps busy fall

Sicklerville (N.J.) Timber Creek defensive tackle Greg Webb has been a terror for opposing quarterbacks this fall.

When he hasn't been in opponent's backfields he's been visiting some of the colleges that have already offered him.

On Monday evening Webb recapped some of his experiences from the fall thus far. The 6-foot-2, 290-pound junior defensive tackle has 11 offers and is one of the Class of 2013's top prospects at his position, so schools have been happy to host him.

"This year I've had a chance to go to a game at Rutgers, a couple of Penn State games, a game at Maryland and a game at NC State," Webb said.

The game at Rutgers was the Knights' season opener against North Carolina Central.

"They got their first victory of the season and it's been a pretty good year for them," Webb said of his home state school. "It was a nice atmosphere up there. They had a pretty decent crowd. There were a lot of New Jersey people out there."

Webb also attended Penn State's games against Alabama and Iowa. He saw the Nittany Lions in victory and defeat, but there was one common theme with both trips.

"At both games there were 100,000-plus rowdy people," he laughed. "They have great fans. Their fans are fun. I've talked to their coaches a couple of times. I'm looking at them."

Maryland gave Clemson a scare a couple of weeks back but the Terps weren't able to give the Tigers their first loss. Webb was on hand for that one as well.

"That was a great game," he recalled. "It was a close game. Maryland played good. That was one of the best games I've ever seen in person. It was just back and forth."

Webb attended NC State's game against Liberty and said that went well also.

The talented young lineman believes Alabama will be the next school to offer.

"They've said I could be a good player for them," Webb said of the Tide. "I just have to be a little more dominant to get that offer."

Webb has played on both sides of the ball this year but he projects as a defensive tackle in college. He will attend the U.S. Army combine in San Antonio after his season.

He has one more trip in mind this year.

"I want to get out to Alabama on November 5," he said.

That's the date of the LSU game, of course.
