Rutgers Still on Top for Slot WR Jahquel Webb

Brooklyn (N.Y.) Erasmus Hall athlete Jahquel Webb spoke with Scarlet Report about his Rutgers camp experience and which school sits on top in the recruiting process.

Brooklyn (N.Y.) Erasmus Hall athlete Jahquel Webb still sees Rutgers as the school to beat in his recruitment with a decision coming soon.

Webb, who worked as a slot receiver at Wednesday's Fairleigh Dickinson camp, remains high on Rutgers as an option. He hopes a final decision comes within the next month.

“If I was to have a top list, Rutgers would be at the top,” Webb said. “There's definitely other schools but Rutgers talks to me the most. They've gotten to know me. The coaching staff is great. They don't put you down. They always want to get you better, and I love working with them.”

Webb wants to be committed before his senior season at Erasmus Hall.

“I have to make a good, intelligent decision because we're talking about the next four years of my life,” he said. “I'm focused on it, and I'm trying to get it out of the way as soon as possible.”

Webb showcased his skillset as a slot receiver at the Rutgers camp, and said the Scarlet Knights are on him the hardest.

“I feel like I can be successful as a receiver,” he said. “I have my routes down, and I'm just comfortable there.”

Webb spoke with head coach Chris Ash, offensive coordinator Drew Mehringer and safeties coach Bill Busch during camp.

“They've been telling me I'm doing a good job,” he said. “They want me to keep putting in work and being competitive. It was good to get that chemistry with them. Most definitely Rutgers [is recruiting me the hardest]. They've shown me a lot of love, and I think it's very good.”
