Top Prospect Considering Early Commitment

North Mesquite OT <b>J'Marcus Webb</b> has more offers than he can shake a stick at. He might have more than anyone in the Lone Star State. Whether he does, though, is really not that important because he can go where ever he so desires. Annually, Texas produces but just a handful of those types of prospects and he is certainly one of them. However, the 6-7, 270-pounder may already know where he's headed. After all, he is particularly sweet on one Big 12 school.

After checking out North Mesquite RT J'Marcus Webb Tuesday, I have to admit, I fell in love with this DFW-Area kid. Which then led to my curiosity of who might stand the best chance to land his verbal pledge. Webb, in an interview at his high school Tuesday, told Scout.com his favorite teams were, "Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and OU."

But the narrowing down of his faves did not stop there. Asked which school among his leaders was sticking out the most right now, Webb said, "Right now just Texas."

By his own accounts, Webb would tell you that it was the Aggies and Red Raiders in the best shape to lock him up, at least before he visited the Forty Acres a few days ago. North Mesquite head coach Steve Bragg, just the same: "I really thought he was going to Texas A&M or Texas Tech until he took a trip to Austin this past weekend. He was really impressed and he's going back this weekend for their Spring Game."

"He was really impressed with Coach Mack Brown," Bragg added.

Webb said what he liked most about his unofficial to the Forty Acres was "the atmosphere and meeting the coaches." But he hasn't seen everything he would have liked to at this point. "I didn't get a chance to meet any of the players yet, but I will try to do that this weekend," said Webb, one of the leading contenders for the No. 1 spot in the Scout.com Preseason Texas Top 100/200 list (set to debut in late-April).

With a return trip to the Capital City on the agenda, the DFW Area stallion was asked if the likelihood of an early commitment was seriously being considered.

"Yes, sir, I could commit early," Webb revealed.

And with the Horns sticking out the most at this point, it appears that they are the team to beat out, if he does in fact opt to end the suspense early.
