Two B1G Offers for Wood WR Webb

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Warminster (Pa.) Archbishop Wood 2017 receiver Mark Webb holds Big Ten offers from both Rutgers and Penn State. With teammates at both schools, Webb explained his thoughts on a recent Rutgers visit and offer.

Class of 2017 receiver Mark Webb saw another Warminster (Pa.) Archbishop Wood receive honors Friday night when Rutgers awarded tight end Nick Arcidiacono for a strong spring.

Webb enters his junior season with a Rutgers offer, and impressed with how other Archbishop Wood players received opportunities at nearby Rutgers.

"That is a big part of my recruitment," Webb said. "Being with them and knowing that they had good success there, why not go there and look at what they have?"

Webb received an offer from Rutgers directly from head coach Kyle Flood during his Friday night visit.

"It felt good," said Webb, who is a quiet guy off of the field. "To them, it didn't look like it, but it felt good to me. It felt very good. It was a surprising moment because I didn't know it was going to happen. It was nice to have coach Flood just go out and give it to me like that."

Webb is the fourth 2017 receiver to receive a Rutgers offer alongside Tarik Black, Trevon Grimes and Leroy Henley.

"Coach Flood wants a go-getter, and he thinks I can be that dude for them," Webb said. "He wants a go-getting receiver in the field at all times. Being long and lanky and everything, they like that about me."

Penn State was the first power program to offer Webb, and remains high on the radar.

"Things are going well with Penn State," Webb said. "I talk to their coaches a lot, and I'd say we have a special connection right now. I like Penn State a lot."
