Bud Elliott, National Recruiting Analyst: Webb is one of my favorite recruits in the class of 2014. In the Midwest, defensive back play is often lacking, and receivers have great days because the best players play offense more than in other regions. During the Columbus regional stop on the Nike tour, I watched Webb take rep after rep, despite the fast that he was getting really tired out due to the lack of quality defensive backs. Other elite players may have ducked the competition, but not Webb.
The tireless work that Webb showed that day shows up in his game. Webb really sticks with receivers and is a constant pest. At a time in which teams are obsessed with signing big corners, Webb has the game to rank right there with any. His long speed is not great, but he has great agility, quickness and instincts that will serve him well at Ohio State.
