Texas Tech grad transfer quarterback Davis Webb visits Cal

BearTerritory has confirmed that Davis Webb, former Texas Tech quarterback looking to transfer, is currently visiting Cal on a visit.

Former Texas Tech quarterback Davis Webb, currently committed to Colorado as a graduate transfer, has been confirmed to be visiting California this weekend. As with Colorado, he would be immediately eligible to play for the Golden Bears if he chose to flip his commitment.

Webb pledged to the Buffaloes in January, but with a wide-open quarterback competition following the departure of Jared Goff, the Golden Bears have become very enticing, especially since that five-man quarterback competition has yet to resolve itself a week before the spring game

The 6-foot-5, 220-pounder, who played behind Pat Mahomes in 2015 for the Red Raiders, and has thrown 46 touchdowns to 22 picks over his career, has a quick release and a strong arm, earning Holiday Bowl Offensive MVP in 2013 against then-No. 14 Arizona State, carving up the Sun Devils to the tune of 403 passing yards and four touchdowns, going 28-of-41.

At Tech, Webb played under head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who coached with current Cal offensive coordinator Jake Spavital at Houston in 2009. Kingsbury was an offensive quality control assistant, and Spavital a graduate assistant that season, under Dana Holgorsen.

In 2014, Webb was an Academic All-Big 12 second team selection, also appearing on the Maxwell Award Watch List and the Manning Award Watch List, starting eight games and passing for 2,539 yards, 24 touchdowns and 13 picks in 211-of-345 passing (61.2%). At the end of the season, he had surgery on his left shoulder, which he injured against Oklahoma. He missed the last four games. During those four games, Mahomes averaged 439.6 yards passing per game, and 4.6 touchdowns, and he took the reins last season.

When he announced his decision to transfer in January, he was nine credit hours short of graduating. He planned to join Colorado in the summer.
