Webster is in touch with LSU

Miami-Dade County is often a hotbed for collegiate talent, and this year is no different. One of the top defensive players in the 2009 class to come out of the area is Monsignor Pace High's Kayvon Webster.

Webster (6'0", 175, 4.5), who is splitting his time at wide receiver and outside linebacker, has his team off to a 2-1 start, dropping its only game to Miramar.

After a 0-2 start last season, Webster is happy with where things have come.

"We are in a lot better position this year than last year," he said. "We are doing a lot better together than we were at this point last season, so we just got to keep things rolling."

The three-star, being recruited to LSU at the safety position, has his eyes on a number of big time programs across the South.

"Right now I have things narrowed down to about five schools," Webster said. "I really like what I am seeing from LSU, Miami, South Florida, Florida and South Carolina. No real order, but those are my five and they’ve all offered."

As for the Tigers, Webster said that last weekend's Auburn game definitely grabbed his attention.

"Let’s just say that game opened a lot of eyes for recruits," he said. "That was a great game to watch. The speed they showed is what the SEC is all about."

Webster, who camped with the Tigers over the summer, said that he recognized the speed factor the minute he stepped onto campus.

"Everyone was fast that was their working out," he said. "And it is all the kids that will be playing at these big time schools. You just realize that to be on that level you got to step your game up."

Webster, after breaking his finger before the season, has been limited at wide receiver this season.

Nonetheless, he hopes to continue to test both sides of the ball in college.

"I am trying to go to college to play defense," Webster said. "But I still want to try my hand at offense. I know I can play, so why not let me see what I can do."

Without any officials on the board, Webster hopes to make a trip to Baton Rouge before season's end.

"I am definitely trying to get down there," he said. "I just need to get together with the coaches and pick a game."
