QB Davis Webb considering flip to Cal?

|

Texas Tech graduate transfer Davis Webb is verbally committed to Colorado, but could switch his decision to California if a recent report is true.

Per that report, which came from Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports, Webb is visiting Cal this weekend and will likely choose between there and Colorado before he officially enrolls at a program. The reason for Webb’s flip would be the presence of offensive coordinator Jake Spavital at Cal, as Spavital is a former assistant to Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury and could provide a smoother transition for Webb.

And in Cal’s case, coach Sonny Dykes would probably love to have Webb on his team. The Golden Bears are about to lose star quarterback Jared Goff to the NFL Draft and could use Webb, a former four-star recruit who left Texas Tech with 5,557 pass yards and 46 touchdowns while completing 61.4 percent of his passes, to help make for a smoother transition out of the Goff era.

The same cannot be said for Colorado, who seem to be in a constant state of rebuild under coach Mike MacIntyre and have not had a single winning season since making the move to the Pac-12 in 2011. Moreover, the Buffs haven’t won a bowl game since 2004 and adding Webb would instantly improve Colorado’s chances of faring better in 2016. Quarterback Sefo Liufau is expected to miss extended time with a broken foot, so MacIntyre and his staff are probably praying that Webb’s visit to Berkeley is a mere formality.
