Texas Tech transfer quarterback Davis Webb is taking an official visit to Colorado this weekend and plans on visiting Auburn in February, according to Fox Sports.
“I’m just looking for the right school, right fit and for the opportunity to compete for the starting job and to win a lot of games,” Webb said.
Webb is still a few credits short of his degree at Texas Tech, but is eligible for 2016 and plans on enrolling at his new school for the summer session. A former four-star recruit from the Dallas area, he has 5,557 pass yards and 46 touchdowns. He was supplanted as starter by Patrick Mahomes after injuring his shoulder last season.
And Colorado and Auburn are two teams that could use a serious upgrade at quarterback. Colorado went 4-9 (1-8 Pac-12) in 2015 and hasn’t won a bowl game since 1999, while Auburn hasn’t had a strong quarterback since Cam Newton. No disrespect to Nick Marshall, who helped the Tigers to the 2013 BCS National Championship Game, but he’s nowhere near Newton’s caliber.
Webb also has other visits planned, so stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on his decision!
