Webb talks SMU official, relationships

Hatts talked with SMU commit and San Angelo Central offensive lineman Braxton Webb about his SMU official visit.

2016 San Angelo HS (Tex.) tackle and SMU commit had been looking forward to the opportunity to meet the rest of the commits, but the weekend went above and beyond what he expected.

“I can’t even begin to tell you it was awesome I mean I wish I could just do that all over again,” Webb said, “I’m a west Texas kid so I never get to experience that and it was really really good.”

For Webb, aside from meeting the players the best part of the weekend was getting to eat at Texas de Brazil.

“It was all you can eat and then there was these guys that would walk around with these skewers that would walk around asking you how much you want,” Webb said. 


The 6-5, 272-pound tackle was also excited to get to know some of his fellow commits better, as well as, develop a relationship with some current players. 

“When I came into SMU this weekend I was expecting SMU I was expecting a blast and I left feeling even more excited already being there with the teammates,” Webb said, “I would say the one I built the strongest relationship with was Ryan Becker, a fellow #Pony16 member, and William Barnes and Matt Davis.

Webb got to spend a lot of time with Barnes and Davis just picking their brains about life at SMU and playing for coach Morris. 

“I think it was great I got to spend some time with them and find out who they really are and stuff and they told how special a place SMU really is and how they’re very happy they got to play for that,” Webb said. 

For Webb, the entire weekend was a dream come true but the most memorable part of the weekend, aside from the food was getting the chance to build that relationship with a couple of the players. 

“I guess all of it was my favorite part of the weekend,” Webb said, “I guess the most special was just hanging out with Matt, William and Ryan, and eating at Texas de Brazil and hanging out with them.”

Webb will wrap up his high school career in the International Bowl on Sunday in AT&T Stadium at 3 pm CT on ESPN3.
