AUBURN, Ala. — It appears Davis Webb is once again in the fold for Auburn after spurning the Tigers in January on the transfer market.
The former Texas Tech quarterback committed to Colorado and never took his planned visit to Auburn, but has apparently re-opened his recruitment after visiting California in recent weeks. His next stop could be Auburn.
Webb, a graduate transfer, would be eligible immediately and would certainly throw another interesting twist into an already crowded field of quarterbacks at Auburn. The Tigers’ trio of Jeremy Johnson, Sean White and John Franklin III failed to provide highlight-reel throws or decisions at the annual A-Day scrimmage Saturday, making the timing of Webb’s decision to visit Auburn all the more interesting.
ESPN’s Jake Trotter reports Webb plans to visit Auburn, according to Chris Low of the same media organization.
Webb has not yet contacted Auburn in an attempt to set up a visit, a source told SEC Country. Attempts by SEC Country to reach Webb have not been immediately successful.
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.
