This year the Bulls are looking to bring in two safeties and they hope Kayvon Webster will be one of them. The 5-foot-11, 180 pound Miami Pace standout has actually never played safety though.
"I played wide receiver and linebacker last year." Said Webster, "This year I'm going to play both corner and safety on defense and stay at wideout on offense."
Webster says he's making the switch to get prepared for college, where he feels he's too small to play linebacker.
"I love to hit, but my body is built more for the secondary."
There are still two weeks to go till the spring evaluation period but Webster has already caught the eye of college coaches, racking up several offers including Florida, FIU, Arizona, South Florida, South Carolina and UCF.
"USF offered me a while ago and then sent me a written offer in the mail about a week or two ago. I talk with Coach (Larry) Scott about once every two weeks, we've known each other for a while though."
Two teams that haven't offered are Michigan and West Virginia, Webster hopes to hear from them soon.
"I grew up liking Michigan and with West Virginia I just like the way they play."
As a junior, Kayvon had 7 catches for 71 yards and one score. He finished the season with 90 tackles and two caused fumbles on defense. This spring he says he's going to put in a lot of work at corner working to get better at his new position.
"I'm fast and can tackle, I just need to be more patient with the wide receivers in coverage."
Last summer Kayvon went to a couple college camps, one at Wake Forest where he ran a 4.4 forty. This summer he's already got one camp scheduled and he's figuring out a few more.
"I'm going to LSU the second week in June. I know I'm going to visit USF, but it probably won't be until the fall. I'm going to take an official visit to USF and South Carolina."
