Beauregard, Ala.--Getting an early visit from new Auburn offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey soon after he arrived on the Plains, the reigning Mr. Football in the state of Alabama, Ladamian Webb from Beauregard High, was in Auburn for a visit on Saturday to get a closer look at the Tigers.
The 5-7, 180 running back said that being a part of an event like Auburn’s junior day was “very important" to him. "You get a chance to start your recruiting process," the class of 2018 prospect said.
When asked about Auburn’s chance of offering, he said that, “They’re going to wait it out and see.”
The offers have been rolling in for Webb since being the first junior high school football player to be named Mr. Football. “Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Louisville are the last couple offers,” Webb said.
When asked about which schools he’s higher on, he put it simple by saying, “I haven’t really thought about it yet.”
Webb was asked about where Auburn would stand if offered, he said, “It’ll definitely be in my top five.”
With quickness and surprising power for his size, Webb said he likes what he sees in Auburn’s offense. “I like their play style. I think I would be a great fit for them. They said I’m perfect for the offense they run, especially now with Chip. They would get me the ball in space. I think it’s more of a spread type so I’d be perfect for this offense.”
Webb liked what Auburn offers outside of the offense as well. He said, “We walked around and toured the dorms and stuff like that. We got to see the weight room.”
Webb had an outstanding season a year ago. He racked up more than 3,200 yards and scored 54 touchdowns. He also led Beauregard to a state championship.
In addition to his three latest offers, Webb has received offers from Indiana, Iowa State, Middle Tennessee State, Missouri, UAB, Troy, Southern Mississippi, and Toledo.
