AUBURN, Ala. — Texas Tech quarterback transfer Davis Webb doesn’t want people to know his business.
After the Colorado commitment told an ESPN reporter last week that he plans to visit Auburn, a source told SEC Country no such visit or contact had been made with the graduate transfer. After repeated attempts to reach Webb about his plans, he told SEC Country Saturday he is not going to delve into the details.
“I am keeping this private,” he told SEC Country. “It’s a big choice for myself, that’s why I am keeping it to myself.”
Auburn will have five quarterbacks on scholarship when preseason camp begins in August: Jeremy Johnson, Sean White, Tyler Queen, John Franklin III and freshman Woody Barrett. Webb will be immediately eligible wherever he enrolls this summer. He is expected to graduate from Texas Tech in May.
Webb threw 46 touchdowns and 22 interceptions during his career with the Red Raiders, and was Patrick Mahomes‘ backup in 2015.
Webb had previously told FOX Sports he planned to visit Auburn in February before committing to Colorado in January.
“I just know it’s a good fit with Colorado,” Webb told FOX Sports. “I really like what Coach Mac (Mike MacIntyre) and (OC) Coach (Brian) Lindgren are doing with the offense. I like that they are scheduled to play eight preseason Top 25 teams. I’ll have a good chance to showcase my ability on the road at Oregon and at Michigan. I will get plenty of exposure to pursue my dream of playing in the NFL.
“I really feel Colorado is just a couple of players from taking that next step to where the Colorado Buffaloes have been before (in the Top 25) and where Colorado should be.”
Webb was rated a three-star, pro-style prospect out of Prosper, Texas in 2013. He started 10 games as a freshman and threw for 2,718 yards and 20 touchdowns with nine interceptions while completing 62.6 percent of his passes.
