Webster holding eight offers

Atlanta, Texas runningback Corion Webster is a hot commodity these days with eight offers on the table.

Atlanta, Texas runningback Corion Webster has seen his offer total reach eight in recent weeks with new offers from Arkansas and Oklahoma State in addition to the ones he already held from TCU, Texas A&M, Arkansas State, Memphis, Texas Tech and Arizona State.

The new offers from the Razorbacks and Cowboys didn't come as a shock to Webster since both schools were showing him strong interest. After coaches from both schools visited Atlanta a couple of weeks ago, the offers were extended.

"They had been sending stuff to me in the mail, they just talked to me," Webster said of Arkansas and Oklahoma State. "They told my coach that they offered me. It was great."

Throughout the process Arkansas has been a school that Webster has had a high interest in. It's no surprise that after receiving the offer, the Razorbacks vaulted to number one on his list. Webster has two others that round out his top three.

"It kind of made my day," Webster said of the Arkansas offer. "They went to #1 (on his list of favorites). I also like Oklahoma State and TCU."

One school notably missing from his favorites is Texas A&M. Webster says he has backed off from the Aggies as they add more runningbacks to their roster.

"I backed off on them, Tra Carson just went there," Webster said.

Although depth chart is a small concern for Webster, he says playing time isn't a huge factor. "I really don't care when I play," he said.

Webster hopes to attend a few camps over the summer, including his top three schools.

"I'm going to try to go to the one in Arkansas sometime in June and the Oklahoma State one too," he said. "They're supposed to have the camps around us. TCU's, it just depends on what day theirs is on."

It's already been nearly a week since the school year ended for Webster and now that he has more time on his hands, he's spending it in the weight room.

"I've just been working out right now," he said.

Webster rushed for 1,865 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2011.
