Close but Still Looking?

Spring ball is complete at Owasso and offensive lineman Brandon Webb said he wants to get his commitment out of the way before the season starts. With the next three months and only one visit under his belt, where does the Oklahoma prep star plan to be in the next couple of weeks? Sooners Illustrated has the update.

As previously reported by Scout.com, Owasso (Okla.) offensive lineman Brandon Webb looks to make a decision soon. As far as how soon according to Webb, it could be as early as next month.

But what is on the schedule for the 6-foot-4, 280-pound Webb?

"I'm not sure where I am going to this summer," Webb said. "I will probably commit next moth sometime, but definitely this summer. Right now, I am still looking."

Webb currently holds eight offers from Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma State, Tulsa, Missouri, and Colorado. But of all the schools listed, the only place he has visited this off-season has been Oklahoma.

"I liked it," Webb said. "The one thing I really liked is that the coaches are real competitive. And they like to win (like everybody else does)."

Other than Oklahoma, Webb said that Tulsa, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech contact him the most. From the Sooner coaching staff, coach James Patton is the coach he communicates with the most. 

But another coach came by recent to check in on him the other day.

"Coach (Jackie) Shipp came by the school the other week," Webb said. "My coach didn't tell me that he said anything, but he did visit."

With Patton, Webb said that he and the Sooner coach mainly chalk talk discussing different things that have to do with offensive linemen.

"We mainly just talk O-Line stuff and he asks how I have been doing," Webb said. "I think that they (Oklahoma coaches) like me a lot. We talk a lot and they are always telling me how good my footwork is."

And Webb agrees. The Oklahoma prep star said that it is his feet that make him the lineman he is. He said he has great mobility and gets to the necessary places in order to secure blocks.

"I have good feet and I always get to right place in order to make the block," Webb said. "My footwork allows my to get down field. I see the field really well. I am one of these guys who get down the field and make blocks."

He will likely get to continue doing that despite moving from the tackle to the guard position.
