What it means: There was some concern that Mark Webb might stay at home late in the recruiting process. He visited Penn State in January, and while he’s critical to the future passing game in Athens, he’s also critical in that he’s very close with star running back D’Andre Swift.
So that duo really did seem like a package deal. Nonetheless, Webb enters his time in Athens as a player with room to grow. He’s one of a handful of prospects to sign in this class not ranked as one of the top 300 players in the country, he is considered a four-star prospect… hardly a slouch.
At 6-3, 200, he’s a relatively big receiver. But he’s a little more shifty than you might think. His explosiveness isn’t as simple as running past defenders, but can do that very well. He should do just fine in the SEC.
Dean Legge saw him live: Never
Brian Dohn says: Webb is young and long, and he added 20 pounds of muscle since his sophomore season ended. He gets off the line cleanly because of his hands and length, and he can take the next step as a receiver if he adds a bit more explosion. He gets out of breaks well and he knows how to use his body to shield off defenders. He has sneaky speed to get behind the defense and the size to go over the middle.
