It certainly looked like former Texas Tech quarterback Davis Webb was all set to be the starting guy for the Colorado Buffaloes for the 2016 season. However, over the last few days, the quarterback has made a surprising move by scheduling visits with PAC-12 rival Cal and now, perennial SEC powerhouse Auburn.
ESPN reported Sunday afternoon that Webb is set to visit the Tigers sometime in the near future. This would be huge for their quarterback competition, which already includes senior Jeremy Johnson, sophomore Sean White, and junior college transfer John Franklin III.
“There’s good competition there, and the guy who gives us the best chance to win will be the guy we go with,” head coach Gus Malzahn said.
Davis Webb is entering his fifth season of eligibility and would be eligible to play in 2016 as he graduated from Texas Tech just a few months ago. He decided to transfer after losing the starting job to Patrick Mahomes last year.
He has thrown for 5,557 yards and 46 touchdowns across his three-year career. If he were to stay on the West Coast and transfer to Cal, he would likely be the replacement for Jared Goff, who is expected to be drafted in the top five on the NFL Draft later this month.
