Anaheim Servite defensive back Tre Webb discusses recruitment, high on San Jose State

San Jose State has a defensive back on its radar after losing the commitment of Leni Toailoa - three-star Tre Webb. The Anaheim prospect is picking up interest from other schools too, however.

Three-star Anaheim (Calif.) Servite defensive back Tre Webb has had his recruiting interest pick up over the first month of the high school season, but the San Jose State Spartans were the first to offer and remain his only offer so far. 

Outside of SJSU, Webb said that he is hearing most from Army and UCLA, followed by Boise State, Iowa, Nevada, USC and Utah. 

"It's really starting to pick up," Webb said. "A lot of interest from a lot of schools, mostly Pac-12 and Mountain West. They are waiting to see my first few games, they like what they see so far. They just want me to keep it up, keep improving."

His first offer came months ago when he participated in San Jose State's satellite camp at Carter High School in Rialto this summer. He also took an unofficial to the campus before earning his offer.

"I had talked to them a lot before, then they just wanted to see me in person," Webb said. "I talked to them about a month before and I went to the school about a month before and really liked it a lot. I talked to the coaches and got to know them really well. It was a good environment. I did really good at the camp and I got a call about two weeks after and they offered me."

"It was overwhelming," Webb said of his first offer. "I was so excited. I loved it. It made me hungry for more."

As is the case with many defensive backs that San Jose State has recruited, coach Donte Williams stood out the most at the Spartans' camp.

"I loved his coaching, the way he coaches," Webb said. "He really helped me with my technique and it was a great experience."

San Jose State seemed to cool off on some of their defensive back recruits after landing three commitments for 2016 - that was until today when Leni Toailoa flipped from SJSU to UCLA. Williams had kept steady contact with Webb, however, and Webb is planning an official visit on the weekend of Dec. 4. 

The official visit is the only one he has planned so far. He wants to take all five visits before he makes a decision. 

Webb has been told that his physicality and technique are two big factors as to why he is drawing interest from college coaches. At 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, he can also play a variety of positions in the secondary. Web had two interceptions in his season opener this year. 

Stay tuned for where Webb's second offer could come from and where the Spartans stand in his recruitment throughout the process.
