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.
