OAKLAND, Calif. -- Of the several stand-out tight ends at Sunday's Kenion Training 7on7 Kickoff event at Oakland (Calif.) Skyline, Spencer Webb is the most well-known in recruiting circles, and is one of our tight ends to watch for the 2018 class out West.
Already with an offer from Sacramento State, the 6-foot-5, 225-pounder out of Sacramento (Calif.) Christian Brothers is starting to get noticed. California has inquired, as have Colorado and Oregon State. Webb hopes to visit Corvallis this spring, along with Boise State and Washington, but on Saturday, paid a visit to another suitor: Fresno State.
"It was great. I liked it a lot," Webb said. "We took pictures, they talked to me about what they want to see from me. They showed me the facilities, and I got to know them a little bit more."
One coach he got to know? New head coach Jeff Tedford, who's used tight ends frequently in his offense.
"I like him," Webb said. "They want to see me block more, so they're going to come to some of my games this year and watch me block. I didn't put too many blocking highlights into my highlights, so tonight, I'm going to fix that."
There is one school that hasn't been in contact, though, that Webb is hoping to hear from: Oregon.
"I watched them play Auburn in the national championship a couple years ago, and that's when I fell in love with them, and ever since then, I've been watching them," he said.
Previously, Webb has played split out, at the H-receiver spot, but he's had experience with his hand in the dirt, and with the coaching change at Christian Brothers, it's expected he'll play more as an attached, in-line tight end as a senior.
"I'll be doing more of that," he said. "I always want to get bigger. My height, I'm happy with. I'm pushing 6-5.5, but I would like to get to 230 or 240 by next season."
Last season, Webb caught 41 balls for 660 yards and seven touchdowns.
