Defensive tackle Greg Webb (Sicklerville N.J./Timber Creek) is losing weight and gaining scholarship offers.
Webb, an ESPNU 150 Watch List member, landed offers from Miami and Virginia last week, which raised his number of FBS offers to 14.
“Still considering all the schools,” Webb said. “I'm going to start to narrow things down pretty soon.”
Webb has been shedding weight in preparation for wrestling season. He's among the top heavyweight wrestlers in New Jersey.
Webb said he played at around 300 pounds last season, but is down to 285 now. He helped Timber Creek win the South Jersey Group III championship by defeating Hammonton 33-7 in the title game. Timber Creek finished 12-0 and won the first sectional title in the program's history.
Webb transferred to Timber Creek from Paul VI (Hammonton) last April. He started on the defensive line for Paul VI during his freshman and sophomore seasons.
Timber Creek coach Rob Hinson said Webb could be the best defensive lineman in New Jersey next season.
“He never gives up on a play and he usually finds the ball,” Hinson said.
Webb's other offers are from Connecticut, Florida State, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Purdue, Rutgers, Syracuse, Tennessee and Central Florida. He has taken unofficial visits to Connecticut, Maryland, Penn State and Rutgers.
“I won't make a decision until next year,” Webb said. “It probably won't be until February .”
Massachusetts offers McShea
Three-star tight end Jameson McShea (Cotuit, Mass./Boston College High) picked up an offer from Massachusetts on Monday.
“Yes, I like [Massachusetts],” McShea said via text message. “I'm going to check it out some more though.”
McShea, who decommitted from Temple earlier this month, said last week that he was considering four schools: Boston College, Dartmouth, Harvard and Maryland. Of the four, Harvard is the only one that has made an offer. He's hoping he'll know if the other schools are going to offer by Christmas.
In addition to Massachusetts and Temple, McShea also has offers from Elon, Fordham, Holy Cross, Maine and New Hampshire.
