After two good seasons at University of Detroit Jesuit, sophomore wide receiver Damon Webb is now at Cass Tech and ready to prove that he is one of the top prospects in the 2014 class.
"I love Cass," he said. "I feel like it's an opportunity to showcase my talent and get more exposure and the competition is only going to make me better."
He has already had a chance to visit several schools with his coaches and teammates. He has been to Michigan State, Illinois, and last weekend, he went to Michigan.
"The visit was good. I like the practice environment. I like the facilities. I thought it was great. I wanted to see [their receivers] and look at how I could work on my game. I actually saw that Devin Gardner was one of the best receivers. Me and Devin, we both played for the Westside Steelers little league team and that's how I knew Devin for a long time."
Webb also got to meet members of the coaching staff.
"I talked to Coach Fred Jackson and I talked to Devin and Denard Robinson. Coach Jackson asked me about my size and weight and what positions I play."
Webb says his Michigan State visit was a very positive one, and he got an interesting bit of news on how the Spartans will recruit him.
"Coach Samuels said he liked my size and I liked their facilities. They made me feel comfortable. I could see myself playing up there. They like me on defense too. They said they're going to recruit me both ways."
If he has to play defense, that will not be a problem, as Webb said, "I like to be considered as an athlete."
When he went to Champaign, Webb says what stood out was the temp of the practice.
"At Illinois, we watched their practice. It was very intense, but I didn't get to meet any coaches."
Webb is also receiving mail from Purdue, Oregon and Mississippi State. He says he will visit Iowa and Wisconsin this week.
