Webb Seeing UM in Different Light

GoBlueWolverine caught up with 2014 Cass Tech athlete Damon Webb after his most recent visit to Ann Arbor for Michigan's 12-10 victory over Michigan State. Was Michigan able to make some headway with the in-state star?

An increasingly familiar face made his way to Ann Arbor for the Wolverines annual battle with the Spartans Saturday night. 2014 Cass Tech High School athlete Damon Webb had already made it to a few Michigan games this season. He'd also hit the road for games at Michigan State, Notre Dame this fall. However, after the Maize & Blue's 12-10 win over the Michigan State, the 6-0, 175 pounder left the Big House with a new vibe.

“This time when I was up at Michigan it was different,” Webb told GoBlueWolverine. “The crowd was more live. Other Michigan games it wasn’t really this big, but I was really impressed by this visit.”

Although Webb wouldn’t admit to rooting for one team over another during the game, he had an up close and personal view of the Michigan defense. A defense that held running back Le’Veon Bell to just 68 total rushing yards and 2.6 yards per carry.

“Michigan’s defense played really well,” said Webb. “I like the way their corners play. J.T. Floyd, I thought he played a good game. An amazing game.”

When asked if this visit vaulted Michigan up his list, Webb remained coy, but couldn't completely hide the fact that his latest trip to Ann Arbor made a positive impact.

“I wouldn’t say that but it really made me look at Michigan more,” said Webb. “When I sit down and come to my conclusion I’m going to look at Michigan.”

“It helped a lot,” added Webb.
