At 6-feet and 185 pounds, Jacksonville (Fla.) Ed White standout defensive back Dee Webb is coming off an outstanding senior season.
"We missed out on going to the state game," Webb said, "but we had a good year though. I really wanted to get that ring though."
The north Florida standout finished the season with 1,210 yards of total offense with 19 touchdowns. Defensively, he had 56 tackles, five sacks, and six interceptions (two of which went back for touchdowns).
Webb was all set to make the trip to California last week for the CaliFlorida Bowl.
"I wasn't able to make it because I did something to my knee," he said. "It's straight now though, I just wasn't sure if I wanted to play on it. I was hoping to play to see where I stood against those other top defensive backs. Plus it would have been tight to meet some of those other guys there."
The standout defensive back is set to make three recruiting visits this month after taking a trip to Florida last month.
"Florida was tight," he said. "I really like it there. Bam [Hardman, a former teammate] really liked it down there. It feels comfortable to me. I was watching them practice and I really think I can go in there and play right away. They are pretty thin at corner behind the starters."
Webb said he met a couple fellow UM prospects on his trip to Florida.
"I saw a dude named Tranell [Morant]," he said. "He looks like a 30-year old grown man. He was cool."
Webb will take his second visit this weekend to Florida State.
"I'm going to check things out up there," he said. "See what they're talkin about. But really, I'm probably going to decide between Florida and Miami."
So what does the talented defensive back have to say about the Hurricanes?
"I'm going down there on the 24th," he said. "I was supposed to go down there last month but it would have been a real short visit because I got an award that weekend back home. I'm going down later this month and I know guys like Willie [Cooper] will be there too. I grew up liking Miami but it's different now that I have to pick where I have to go, you know. I have to make a decision based on what's best for me, not who I rooted for growing up. It's about even right now."
Webb said he was surprised to see the Hurricanes fall last Friday night.
"I thought they had it," he said. "Even when they were down, but they had to lose sometime. They will just reload too, you watch."
Webb is also scheduled to visit North Carolina on Jan. 17 but will likely cancel that visit because of a team banquet that weekend.
