Scout.com’s Allen Trieu initially reported that cornerback Damon Webb would join Urban Meyer’s Ohio State Buckeyes.
“Coming into this visit, I wanted to look at a lot of aspects of the university starting off with education. They have a good sports industry program with a lot of majors, and my parents and I felt it was a good program,” Webb told Scout. “Then there is the overall winning aspect. I feel like I can win here, and get a good education.”
For Webb, the difference for the Buckeyes was how often the Buckeyes’ coaching staff came to his games.
“Coach Coombs came to visit me at Cass every month. I felt he was very high on me. All the words he said to me were sincere and Coach Meyer made me feel at home. When I was at the visit, I went over what Coach Coombs sees me at, and I think I can definitely play right away.”
This is a huge get for the Buckeyes, and it should make the Buckeyes defense even more crisp when he comes on campus. They had an undefeated season last year and it would be difficult for them to repeat that his coming year. They will definitely have Alabama and Texas A&M standing in their way, and that does not even get into the ever difficult Big 10. Still, Webb will be a huge help in their improvement.
