Receiver Blake Webb Commits To Cowboys

Wide receiver Blake Webb of The Woodlands, Texas has received some nice scholarship offers from schools like Air Force, Boston College, Duke and Rice. On Wednesday, Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy tried to reach Webb by telephone. Finally, after missing each other throughout the day they connected that night, and Gundy offered a scholarship. Webb committed to the Cowboys almost immediately.

Obviously, with offers from Air Force, Duke and Rice, Blake Webb is a very good student. He is also a talented speedster of a receiver.

The 5-11 1/2, and 175-pound Webb has been recruited by Notre Dame and California as well, but it is Oklahoma State that has been his top choice since he had a strong camp in Houston where the Cowboys coaches were guest coaches.

He was so interested that he pushed the envelope just before practice started in August and made the trip to Stillwater on a Sunday for a blazing hot one-day mini-camp just to show the Oklahoma State coaches his talents again. In that camp, we saw him run a 4.49 in the forty on the grass. Webb is very comparable to current Cowboys inside receiver Josh Cooper.

"I was so relieved and thankful that the opportunity was given to me. It was what I really, really wanted," Webb said after receiving Gundy's offer.

Webb's parents said via text that they are also excited about their son's decision to commit to the Cowboys.

A very good student, Webb is pretty talented as last season during his junior campaign he caught 47 passes for 903 yards and five touchdowns. In the spring, he ran a lifetime best 11.03 seconds in the 100 meters during track season. Besides his fast time in Stillwater he has been clocked several times at sub 4.4 including a best of 4.41 seconds.

Webb is off to a good start this season as last week he helped The Woodlands in a resounding victory over Houston Strake Jesuit with two touchdown runs. He scored on a 57-yard run and also on a five-yard touchdown run. So far he has caught 11 passes for 147 yards.

Webb is the 14th known commitment in Oklahoma State's 2012 recruiting class. He is also the third receiver on the board, joining Georgia native C.J. Curry and speedster Kendall Sanders of Athens, Texas.

Webb is an inside receiver prospect.
