Spotlight 2013: DT Greg Webb

Timber Creek (Erial, N.J.) defensive tackle Greg Webb picked up his sixth verbal scholarship offer at the beginning of the month from Rutgers. After camping in Piscataway Saturday, one of the top Class of 2013 recruits in the Garden State gave ScarletReport.com his impressions on the visit.

With two years of high school football left at Timber Creek (Erial, N.J.), defensive tackle Greg Webb came to the Big Man Academy to soak up as much information as possible. Webb may have been fatigued after a camp at Syracuse the day before, but said he was generally pleased with his performance.

"If I had to rate myself, I would probably say I was about an eight," Webb said. "In the drills, I dominated and I did OK in the 1-on-1's. I wasn't using my hands enough. The coaches wanted to see more hands."

Webb spent the majority of the day on campus, he said. After finishing at the camp, Webb spent time with other recruits and the coaching staff to learn more about the school.

"I loved the facilities and everything about Rutgers," Webb said. "Being in [the Bubble] was awesome and same with on the field at Rutgers Stadium. I loved the rehab center, the stadium, the coaches, everything."

Webb made a name for himself during his sophomore season at Timber Creek. Tee 6-foot-3, 290-pounder had 57 tackles, 24 tackles for loss and six sacks en route to first-team All-Conference, first-team All-Parochial of Southern New Jersey and second-team All-Southern New Jersey honors.

Rutgers offered Webb June 1 at his school to go along with offers from Connecticut, UCF, Syracuse, Iowa and Michigan State.

"I was excited to get one from them It's a big-time school and it's near home," Webb said. "I like them."

After receiving his offer, Webb said he wanted to learn more about the coaching staff and the program by attending the Big Man Academy. Webb worked with assistant coaches Phil Galiano and Bob Frasier.

"They gave me some valuable tools I can use," Webb said. "Coach Galiano is a good guy. His philosophy on the d-line was great and the way he treats us. He's honest. If I mess up, he let me know."

Webb said he would like to return to the camp again next season and took a lot away from it that he will use in his junior season.

"Working against those o-linemen was great," Webb said. "Nothing against my guys, but these were so competitive. It made me better.

"It was good first-hand experience. I got to work and run through what an actual practice was like on a college field. I know what to expect at the next level when I get there and it's going to be."
