Wolverine Chooses Pittsburgh

As was anticipated after his unofficial visit to Pittsburgh yesterday, Woodland Hills linebacker Greg Webster announced his intentions this morning. The Pittsburgh Panthers added their eleventh commitment for the Class of 2006.

Pittsburgh continues to secure verbals from the top talent in Western Pennsylvania. This morning at 9:00 AM during a press conference at Woodland Hills (Pa.) high school linebacker Greg Webster (6-2, 225, 4.65) announced that he to will join the Panthers next season.

Webster wore his white Woodland Hills jersey, then donned a Pitt cap and held a gold Pitt helmet (with Panthers logo on side) and announced his decision with his parents, Greg Sr. and Juanita, and sister Kayla, at his side.

"They've got a lot of players from Western Pennsylvania," Webster said. "I feel great about the coaching staff. I feel it will be a great choice for me. I think they have a great program coming up."

When asked what the tenacious linebacker will bring to the table for the Pittsburgh Panthers, he responded.

"I think I'll bring great leadership, great team chemistry and, hopefully, a lot of tackles."

The standout linebacker chose the Panthers over offers from Virginia and West Virginia.

Webster's verbal was important on many fronts for the Panthers, they add much needed size at linebacker, and it never hurts to have a pledge from a teammate of Darrin Walls. The Pittsburgh staff has been courting the Wolverine cornerback as hard as they can, and it appears that it may be working. Pittsburgh seems to be locked in a battle with Michigan and Notre Dame for Walls' services.

Webster led the Wolverines in tackles last season with 134. His older brother Jahmal played defensive end at Maryland.
