Mark Webb Jr. will make his college commitment known on Friday. He’ll choose to do so along a very intriguing opportunity.
Webb, a four-star recruit rated as the nation’s No. 19 wide receiver, tweeted Monday night he’ll make his commitment this Friday night on ESPNU. That will take place at halftime of his Archbishop Wood program’s game against St. Joseph’s Prep. That game features two of Metro Philadelphia’s top programs.
That contest was set for an 8 p.m. kickoff earlier this month.
The Pennsylvania Catholic League Red Division clash will showcase Webb’s team against a squad led by his cousin D’Andre Swift. That’s the same D’Andre Swift who just committed to Georgia earlier this month.
The two have long been thought to be a potential package deal to the same big-time program. Webb told DawgNation there was a 100 percent chance those two would go to the same school back in Oregon this summer at Nike’s all-star “The Opening” prospect showcase.
Has anything changed? Will that be Georgia? DawgNation believes that will be the case among its 2017 projected class.
Webb’s tweet carried an edit with a final group of Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Temple, Penn State and Maryland. It appears that Georgia has been a leader for Webb over the last few months and Alabama has crept up into the picture as perhaps a co-leader for Webb.
Penn State has also been charging hard after Webb.
THE WAIT IS OVER ‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️
