Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre is confident that graduate transfer quarterback Davis Webb will remain committed to the Buffaloes despite Webb also being recruited by Cal and Auburn, even though Webb signed a financial aid agreement back in January.
“I just don’t like the rule,” MacIntyre told Kevin Gemmell of ESPN.com. “He signed with us. He signed a financial aid agreement. And then everybody else can still recruit him … and try to manipulate him, which I do not agree with. I think that’s wrong. But that’s the way the rule is. But I believe he’ll still be here at Colorado.”
NCAA rules state that a financial aid agreement does not bind a recruit to a program so Webb, who spent the first part of his college career at Texas Tech, can still talk to other programs. Colorado definitely needs a quarterback, as 2015 starter Sefo Liufau is still recovering from a Lisfranc injury and may redshirt in 2016. Behind him are Cade Aspay and Jordan Gehrke, neither of whom has the experience to carry a team.
That said, though MacIntyre’s optimism is all fine and dandy, he shouldn’t get his hopes up until Webb flat-out commits to the Buffs in 2016. Stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on this story!
