BREAKING: Florida CB Zaire Webb tells CF.C he's a Coug

THE WASHINGTON STATE coaches have dipped into the Sunshine State once again. On Monday morning, three-star cornerback Zaire Webb spoke with the WSU staff and let them know he’s ready to return to the West Coast and will suit up in crimson starting in 2017

Webb, a 5-10, 165-pound three-star prospect, is a Coug.

“I committed to WSU just this morning about 30 minutes ago,” he told CF.C moments ago. “Washington State is Pac-12 ball and I’ve loved the Pac-12 since I was young. They throw the ball and fly around. It’s just the type of football showcased out on the West Coast.”

The newest WSU commit is entering his senior season for Duncan U. Fletcher High in Neptune Beach, Fla., but is originally from Murietta, Calif. His father is in the Navy, and the Webb family was relocated to Florida in the summer of 2015. 

The Cougs had been paying close attention to Webb since he was in SoCal, though, and were the first program to extend him a tender.

In addition to WSU, the three-star cornerback held offers from North Carolina, Southern Miss, Central Michigan, Tulane and  others. 

“Coach Ken Wilson was my main recruiter and he was the one that gave me the first offer,” Webb said. “We spoke the whole time. We had a nice relationship. With them being my first offer, of course it was huge.”

Although he is yet to visit Pullman, Webb said he’s planning on taking his official visit to WSU in December. This is something he and Wilson are still working on setting up.

“The coaches were pretty excited when I let them know I was committing,” Webb said. “They were pumped up and passing the phone around. The energy was high and they said they can’t wait to get me out there.

“They’re recruiting me as a cornerback and I know we’ll have some of the best receivers, quarterback and DBs around. We’ll all line up and be ready to make plays.”
