Webb "Ready to Sign"

Rochester (N.Y.) Gates-Chili offensive lineman Jacquis Webb made a return trip to Rutgers this weekend for his official visit. Webb was the second offensive line commit in the 2014 class, and feels ready to make things official Wednesday on National Signing Day.

The Rochester, N.Y., presence at Rutgers will strengthen Wednesday when Gates-Chili lineman Jacquis Webb plans to fax in his National Letter of Intent to join linebacker Quentin Gause and fullback Devan Carter.

Webb took his official visit to campus this weekend, and when he left Sunday morning, he felt ready to sign.

"It was amazing," said Webb, who committed during a spring unofficial visit. "It was a great experience. I've obviously been there before, but this is totally different."

Webb was on campus Friday when head coach Kyle Flood named Ralph Friedgen his offensive coordinator. Friedgen was a part of the visit weekend, and stood out to future offensive lineman Webb.

"I knew coach Flood was going to get someone good," Webb said. "I was impressed. I liked him a lot. He seemed like a cool guy that's going to have a good offense.

"We didn't spend too much time together, but we had dinner with him. I really like him, and I think the other guys did too."

Gause hosted Webb on his official visit. The two worked out together since high school, and have a strong relationship.

"It was really cool because I got to see how he is, and how I'm going to fit in," Gause said. "He works really hard in school every day, and that's important to me too. He had some good advice and stuff. It was exciting to watch this season because he kept getting more impact. He's going to be very successful, and now he's going to start. I'm excited to play with him for two years."

Webb made sure to spend time with Flanders (N.J.) Mount Olive's Zack Heeman, who joins him in the 2014 Rutgers offensive line class.

"We connected right from the start," Webb said. "I've been talking to Zack all the time on Twitter and texting. He think the same way. We're going in there together and excited about being teammates.

"My favorite part really was just being around the guys. It was great talking with my coach inside the stadium. I just looked around and realized this is where I'm going to be."
