Fedora Meets With Webb

While making his in-home visit with North Carolina pledge Greg Webb on Tuesday, Larry Fedora made the trip alone.

"[Fedora] is like the Energizer Bunny," Webb's father, Greg Sr., said. "The visit went well. We talked about what is expected of Greg's playing weight and finishing this year out and getting around 300-305 [pounds] for camp."

"He just talking about how school is going to be like next year," Webb said.

Typically when a head coach makes an in-home visit to a prospect, he's accompanied by an assistant coach. But Webb, a 6-foot-2, 290-pound defensive tackle from Erial (N.J.) Timber Creek, has watched back-to-back lead recruiters leave UNC for different job opportunities.

First, Dave Duggan, who had a major hand in landing Webb as his primary recruiter, left for the Southern Miss defensive coordinator job in early January. That was followed by the sudden departure of Deke Adams, who was UNC's defensive line coach and took over Webb's recruitment in Duggan's absence, on Monday – a day after Webb's official visit weekend – for a similar position at South Carolina.

"It has no effect," the elder Webb said. "North Carolina loses a great guy [and] great recruiter. We had a lot of great times, but Greg is still firmly committed to North Carolina. He wants nothing more than to come to Carolina."

Additionally, Webb doesn't expect the departures to affect his teammate, Dajaun Drennon, either. Webb and Drennon verbally committed to UNC during a July unofficial visit to the school and have made several trips back to the Chapel Hill together, including this past weekend's official visit.

"I really haven't talked to him about it yet, but I know he chose UNC for the same reasons that I did," Webb said. "Coach Deke [Adams] is a good dude, but we picked North Carolina for more than just the coaches."

Speaking of the official visit, it gave Webb a full 360 degree view of UNC.

"I got to meet with a professor and more people that work for the staff – like the man who handles admissions," Webb said. "I got to meet the people who are more essential parts of being a Tar Heel."

Additionally, the official visit provided Webb his first UNC basketball game.

"I loved it," Webb said. "The atmosphere was great. The crowd was packed and a lot of people were up and hollering."

Fellow New Jersey native, Jack Tabb, served as Webb's player host for the weekend.

"He's a real cool dude," Webb said. "I met him a couple of times before. I never played against him, but we've known each other. It was good to spend the weekend with someone I know and we can relate on a lot of different levels."
